YWAM Newcastle is a bustling crossroads of travellers from all around the globe united by a shared passion for Jesus. We are focused on providing a secure, relational community where every student is free to encounter God, discover their purpose and train to become an effective agent of change.

The Discipleship Training School (DTS) combines face-to-face teaching and hands-on ministry in a full-time discipleship community which equips students with practical skills for all areas of ministry. This holistic program covers the full range of ministry musts from Biblical scholarship and cross-cultural communication through to budgeting and time management.

There is no limit to the possibilities of where God might take you through the YWAM DTS. This accredited course is designed to give you the knowledge, support and practical experience you need to powerfully live out your calling.


We have four intakes every year, in 

January, April, July and October.

“The things I learned during DTS were life changing! I learned more about who God really is and His plan for the world than I ever thought I would. DTS was more then just a great 6 month experience, it set me up for life.”

- Ethan Landers, DTS Leader
