At YWAM San Diego / Baja, we've been running a ministry to serve the poor and needy called Homes of Hope. After 25 years of building homes for the poor, we are ready to run our 1st DTS designed to train students to bring the Hope of our Lord to the lost and broken of our world! In this school you will also learn how to impact communities in a lasting transforming way! In this school we also have a special focus on language learning (Spanish/English) for those who want to prepare themselves for outreach as well as future missions
In YWAM our motto is 'To know God and to make Him known.' The DTS is designed to equip you to become more like Jesus and to prepare you to walk in obedience! We believe that as we grow in our depth of relationship with Father God, we become more effective in our ministry life. This DTS is built to challenge and increase your faith as you serve and proclaim hope. Are you ready? There are daily lectures, worship, and prayer times that help students live out their beliefs in practical ways. Students also have one on one mentors and small groups that encourage spiritual growth.
The DTS : Building Hope is run at our San Antonio Del Mar campus, which is just north of Rosarito, Mexico. We're located 20 miles south of the U.S. border. All of our schools are bilingual, which gives students the chance to learn about a new culture and learn a new language! As a student you will not only attend lectures, but you will get to go out into the local community and practice what you've learned.
We have a wide variety of ministry opportunities that you will get to participate in during Lecture Phase. Those opportunities include building homes for the poor, ministering to at risk youth, ministering to the homeless, leading bible studies, sports ministry and also praying over the red light district.
This DTS will motivate you to seek God daily and ask Him how He wants to use you to love others. We would love to see you grow and reach God's potential for you, pursuing His call on your life. We invite you to apply for the Building Hope DTS and come join us in beautiful Baja California, Mexico!

We have 6 DTS schools each year that begin every January, April & September and each one runs bilingually in both English & Spanish. The DTS opens with a three month lecture phase where students discover more about God while surrounded by God's beauty in beautiful Baja California, Mexico just south of San Diego. Each week students have a new guest speaker, and each week focuses on a different topic. Throughout the week students will worship and pray together as well as read through the bible together. Students live in a close knit community with one another and encourage one another 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.

After the 12-week lecture phase, the students go on an outreach for eight weeks, usually to another country. The outreach phase enables students to apply the concepts they learned during the lecture phase, and to tell the world about the awesome God we serve! The goal of these five months is to see real spiritual transformation take place in every student and at the same time, reach those who have been unreached by the gospel. As the students dive deeper into a vibrant relationship with God, they find that ministering to others is a joy!
