Our DTS begins with a 3-month Campus Phase where students discover new levels of their relationship with God while surrounded by God’s natural creations on our 35-acre campus. Located only 15 minutes from downtown Salem and 1 hour from Portland, Oregon, you’ll be fully immersed in new environments and have the chance to explore daily.
During the campus phase, students will live in a close-knit community where they’ll encourage each other to grow in their walk with the Lord. There is also time to meet in small groups, and the opportunity to be personally mentored, encouraged, and discipled by our YWAM staff.
When you choose the Documentary Film elective, you will participate in weekly, hands-on training sessions that fine-tune your video production skills for Christ. Whether you’re brand-new to filmmaking or have been called to previous documentary projects, we’ll provide the knowledge you need to succeed in a lifetime of mission-driven visual storytelling.
Our weekly Documentary Film topics include:
- God as a Storyteller
- Creating the Narrative
- Tone, Pace & Emotion
- The Gear & The Team
- The Camera
