Honoring God Through Music and Worship

When we gather to worship God, something special happens: He meets us there. We remind one another of the truth of who He is as we sing (or shout!) it out.


Dive Deep into Worship

The YWAM Music & Worship DTS Elective incorporates all the elements of  Discipleship Training School: personal relationship with God, knowing His character, growing in humility and obedience, discovering who he’s made you to be, living that out in relationship with others, and so much more. It adds an emphasis on honoring God with our musical gifts, building in regular opportunities to hone your skills, working together in teams, and learn about leading others in worship.

Real ministry is the overflow of personal relationship with Jesus. Find you voice and your sound while going deeper in our Music & Worship DTS.


Hands-on Ministry

During your DTS outreach, you’ll take eight weeks to engage the nations with the Gospel. You and your team will meet both practical and spiritual needs as you share Jesus in a strategic overseas location. Recent Youth With A Mission teams have ministered in India, South Africa, Ukraine, and Egypt. Locations vary and the possibilities are endless.
