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 God’s creations and have the chance to explore countless new communities.
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.
You have a passion for impacting your community – now spread that desire to God’s youngest children. The youth ministry course will equip you with the skills, knowledge, and heart to train and disciple young people to live a lifestyle of boldness and unashamed love for Jesus.
Young people from all walks of life have the boundless potential to serve God from the passionate perspective of youth. You will learn to harness this potential and help the young members of your community take control of their futures and live out their God-given purpose wherever He takes them in the world.
