In response to COVID-19 restriction, we’ve had to temporarily scale back from the 20+ DTSes we usually run each year. Read more about our usual range here or find out about our upcoming October 2021 DTS and January 2022 DTS!
Encounter God and be equipped to reach the vulnerable, addressing issues such as human trafficking, the refugee crisis and prostitution. God is a God of compassion, mercy and justice, and as we know Him more, we come to know truth and are motivated by His compassion and can engage in His ways towards His redemptive purpose.
The Priceless DTS incorporates a focus on representing the justice of God to the world within the context of a DTS.
Authentic discipleship involves knowing God, walking in His ways and living for His priorities. We’ll start with 12 weeks in our Perth missions community, looking closely at what it means to follow Jesus. We’ll explore topics such as hearing God’s voice, worship, evangelism, God’s Fatherheart and more. Growth happens, not just in the classroom, but in small group discussion, in times of serving, sharing and community life. We include a special emphasis on issues related to injustice and we will focus on how to respond and minister to the vulnerable.
On outreach we apply and live out all that we’ve learned as we obey the command of Jesus to "go into all the world and make disciples." Our teams specifically focus on locations where human trafficking and prostitution are prevalent. There will be many opportunities to serve through teaching, advocacy, meeting practical needs, evangelism, reaching out to those involved in labor and sex trafficking. We will speak the love of Jesus while actively demonstrating His love and compassion.
We wrap up back in Perth, telling the stories of what God has done and preparing for what He has next. Wherever God leads you, you’ll carry His heart for the vulnerable, for issues of justice and you’ll be prepared to make a difference.
A DTS opens doors to all kinds of training and missions opportunities! We invite you to get further training at YWAM Perth through courses such as our School of Journalism, or join staff to continue the journey of serving Jesus in the nations with an initiative like our Priceless Ministry.

In Bucharest, Romania, we partnered with an organisation that helps women come out of prostitution. One day a worker from the organisation, my teammate, and myself were reaching out to women in prostitution. We approached a young woman and introduced ourselves, gave her coffee and the organisation’s business card, and our friend explained how we could help her out of prostitution if she wanted. We found out that she had been wanting to leave prostitution for a little while now but didn’t know how. She had heard of the organisation before but lost the contact information and didn’t know how to contact them, so she had been asking God to show her a way out. She shared that when she saw us it was like seeing angels sent to show her that way out. So that day she decided to call the number on the card and to leave prostitution. We were blessed to have seen her and serve her a few days later in the recovery program, receiving help, and on the road to a different lifestyle. It was amazing to see God’s faithfulness to this woman and His love at work powerfully through our obedience!
