Our DTS starts with a 3-month Campus Phase where students discover more about God while surrounded by God's beauty on our 35-acre campus. Located only 15 minutes from downtown Salem and 1 hour from Portland, Oregon, you’ll be fully immersed in His creations and have the chance to explore countless new communities.
Exclusive to YWAM DTS is our 6 elective offerings, which you can choose from for a unique opportunity to learn more about your specific passions through God.
When you choose the Evangelism & Apologetics elective, you’ll embark on an enlightening and transformative journey designed to unearth the rich tapestry of authentic historic Christianity. You’ll be empowered to confidently share this timeless message with others during a weekly local outreach activity, while also strengthening your understanding of your own faith.
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.
Our weekly Evangelism & Apologetics topics include:
- What is the Gospel?
- Necessity of “Good Character” in Apologetics
- Core Principles of Historic Christianity
- Authority of Scripture
- Current Challenges – Progressive
- Other Faiths & Worldviews - Ministering to Diverse Backgrounds
