There are amazing opportunities for musicians to make a difference in the world. Our passion and desire is to disciple... equip... empower... and release artists into these opportunities.
The Music & Worship DTS is a 5-month long program created to strengthen students’ relationship with God. This school is designed for singers & musicians at any skill level, as well as those that are interested in music production. 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.
PURPOSE: TO KNOW GOD AND MAKE HIM KNOWN
The core purpose of a Discipleship Training School is to help students gain an understanding about God and His ways. Our mission as YWAM is “To know God and make Him known”. DTS is an opportunity to say “yes” to these things in a deeper way.
In addition, we believe that God wants to raise up worshipers and musicians in this generation. We tailor our Music & Worship Schools to focus on these areas throughout the 5 months.
Overall, DTS will strengthen your faith, develop your Christian character, identify your unique gifts and equip you to share the love of God through music. Now more than ever it’s an incredible time to be a musician with a calling and a purpose!
HEART: DTS IS MORE THAN JUST A TRAINING SCHOOL
The Hebrew word yada means ‘to know by experience’. Our heart for DTS is that students would ‘yada’ God more; to know Him by experiencing Him in new and deeper ways. DTS is about so much more than head knowledge. It’s about knowing God and His love more in order to share that love with those around us.
The heart of our Music & Worship DTS is to inspire, champion, and equip those called to create through music. Whether you feel called to minister to the heart of God through worship, or to minister to others by sharing your music with the world, DTS will provide you with a foundation on which to build a life with eternal significance.
VISION: MUSIC WILL CHANGE THE WORLD
Music is a powerful art form and something that helps to shape our culture. Through it, we can reveal God to the world in ways that are unique and creative. We want to raise up an army of musicians and creatives to know God and make Him known through our unique styles and talents.
