YWAM’s Creative Justice Discipleship Training School is an experience of a lifetime. Make new friends... Travel the world... Encounter God in a new way... take part in missions... And find purpose as you minister with your art form.

The Creative Justice DTS is a 5 month long program created to strengthen your relationship with God while finding purpose in the fields of Art & Justice.

This school is open to all artists. Whether it’s music, dance, painting, fine arts, fashion, photography, or filmmaking you love, we have a place for you here! Also, there is no-prerequisite for this school. In other words, you don’t need to complete a ‘regular’ DTS in order to participate in this one. YWAM Toowoomba is part of the global Youth With A Mission network. See below for more information on our organization!


Youth With A Mission (YWAM, pronounced “WHY-wham”) was founded in 1960 with the goal of getting youth involved in missions. Youth With A Mission is a global movement of Christians dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Though coming from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, we unite with the common purpose to know God and make Him known.

YWAM has three branches: training, evangelism, and mercy ministry. Our Discipleship Training Schools fall under the training branch of YWAM, however over the course of outreach you will likely also participate in evangelism and mercy ministry – this could be anything from house visits with refugee families to busking on the streets to helping run local and international events.


In the early months of 2011 staff were sent out from YWAM Brisbane to pioneer a new ministry base in Toowoomba – the second largest inland city in Australia, with a focus on empowering those passionate about music ministry.

Now almost a decade later, YWAM Toowoomba has grown into a base dedicated to empowering artists and championing justice & mercy. Through our many ministries we seek to give young people the opportunity to say “yes” to God and impact the world through love and hospitality starting with our neighbors and reaching to the ends of the earth.


Our DTS is open to anyone; from those who have just gotten started with art, to seasoned painters, writers, and film producers!
