Our Compassion in Action DTS begins in September and again in January! This DTS reflects the heart of who we are as a ministry at YWAM San Diego/Baja.  Since 1990, the heart of our ministry has been to serve the poor in Northern Baja California, Mexico. We have developed a variety of opportunities to serve the needy, and as a DTS student here you will have the chance to get involved!

During this school, you will get to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the local community. Here are a few of the opportunities you'll have to serve: building homes for the poor, ministering to orphans, feeding the homeless, and praying over the red light district.  These opportunities make our campuses unique, and they create a great environment to do a DTS in. Our location not only allows you to study, pray, and learn, but also to minister God’s love to the lost and broken.

The curriculum of every DTS is focused on cultivating a life of intimacy with God and then going out to tell others about Him. This DTS is designed to challenge the way you think and share God’s love with others!

How does God think and feel about issues like poverty that face our world? What is our response to these issues and how can we address them? 

The world is waiting to see the love and compassion of Christ! We live in an exciting time where the world is motivated to help others. As believers we should be leading the way! 

This DTS will challenge you to not simply give based on emotion or need. You will learn to minister from a place of deep understanding that we are all created in God's image, and there is such immense value in each individual!

The September DTS will be held at our San Antonio Del Mar campus and the January DTS will be held in Ensenda. All of our schools are bilingual, with translation in English and Spanish.

For the outreach phase of the September DTS, we will be sending teams to Uganda, India, and Latin America! The outreach locations for the January DTS have not been decided yet, but will be soon. 

This is going to be a great DTS that will reveal to you the Father’s heart for the world. It will motivate you to seek God daily and ask Him how He wants to use you to love others. We invite you to apply for the Compassion in Action DTS and come join us in beautiful Baja California, Mexico!
