As YWAM, our approach to training is holistic - “live-learn” - recognising that learning and growth don’t just take place through lectures in a classroom, but also through serving, living in community, one-on-one discipleship, small group discussions and more.
We love meeting with God together! You’ll have regular times of worship with your DTS, as well as with the larger YWAM Perth community.
Connect with God’s heart and intentions for situations, nations, people groups and more as you and your DTS regularly pray and seek Him together.
Regular times to meet with a DTS staff member, giving you opportunity to further process what God is doing, receive prayer and more.
Everyone, staff and student, lends a hand to keep our community functioning. This could include serving in the kitchen, helping with administration, working on property upkeep, wherever there is need and wherever your skills fit.
YWAM Perth is a multicultural, multigenerational gathering of individuals and families from many church backgrounds, committed to Christ, to the Great Commission and to each other.
You’ll have set-aside times to meet with a smaller group from your DTS to discuss, process, encourage each other and have fun.
Book reports, a group research project and weekly journals give you more opportunity to process and apply what you are learning.
As a community, we regularly set aside time to reach out to the city of Perth - the missions field at our doorstep - bringing hope to those in need.
Events like open mic nights, trivia challenges, camping trips, BBQ’s, sport and games are all part of your DTS experience. Whether it’s exploring Perth’s cafe culture or catching a wave at one of Perth's beaches, we love having fun together!
You don’t need to wait to make a difference! Go public with the gospel - share truth and meet needs.
Following three months of lecture phase, your DTS will head off on a three month cross-cultural outreach.
Outreach teams go and serve the lost wherever they are, and share the hope of Christ in many ways: evangelism, discipleship, sports, drama, youth ministry, teaching, music, practical service, prayer, media, healthcare – we do it all.
We demonstrate the love of God to people through our lives and through the gifts that He’s given us.
Teams regularly partner with local churches and YWAM ministries to strengthen their ministry and provide for follow up discipleship. Your final week will be spent back in Perth, de-briefing and being equipped to continue with everything that God has done in your life over the six months.

Your final week will be spent back in Perth, de-briefing and getting ready for all God has for you next. Once you've finished DTS, you’ve got an open door into further training and ministry within YWAM both in Perth and internationally. The opportunities - in YWAM and beyond - are endless. You’ll be amazed at where God can take you! (And we’d love to help you get there)
