Our DTS begins 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 God’s creations and have the chance to explore countless new communities.
Exclusive to YWAM DTS are 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 sports ministry elective, you will participate in weekly, hands-on training sessions that bridge the gap between faith and athletics. If you’re passionate about sports and missions – or you have an interest in physical discipline and spiritual growth, then this DTS elective is for you.
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.

- Heart of the Sports Movement

- Talking with a Sports Person
- Sports Ministry Map
- Pray, Play, Say
