Where is our DTS located?
We have Discipleship Training Schools at both of our campuses in Mexico : San Antonio Del Mar and Ensenada. Although our base is called YWAM San Diego/Baja, we do not run our schools in San Diego. Our San Antonio Del Mar campus is located in between Rosarito and Tijuana. It is about 20 minutes south of the U.S. border. Our Ensenada campus is located about an hour and a half south of the U.S. border, by car. Both of our campuses are within walking distance to the beach. There is a variety of things to do near each campus during free time, including movie theaters, shops, cafes, and of course, taco stands!
How long is a DTS?
The DTS is a five month long course with two phases. During the Lecture Phase, students spend time in lectures, worship, intercession, local evangelism, and many other activities. Our staff and the campus community help students to develop discipline in their personal prayer lives and their study habits.
For the second phase of DTS, students are put into outreach teams and sent into the nations for two months of cross-cultural evangelistic outreach. Following this Outreach Phase, the students return to our campus to spend a week in debrief/reflection prior to their graduation.
