Our Compassion in Action DTS is about spreading God's generous love to a lost and broken world.  Grow in your faith and minister out of your relationship with Christ!  Our Compassion in Action DTS runs twice a year in Baja California, Mexico.  This is the perfect DTS for those who feel called to love and minister to the lost, the poor and needy!  This school will also provide you with an opportunity to develop your passion for ministry and being Jesus's hands and feet to the world.  As we serve and give of ourselves, God so faithfully reveals Himself and helps us to understand the unique purpose he created us for.

Since 1990, YWAM San Diego / Baja has been to serving the poor and needy in Northern Mexico. For over 25 years we have been building homes for the poor and to date we have built over 5,000 homes for needy families. We've included a Homes of Hope track into our Compassion in Action DTS (more info below). 

The heart of every DTS is focused on cultivating a life of intimacy with God and then going out to express to others how great our God truly is. As a DTS student, you will have the chance to get involved and to serve! During this school, you will get to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the local community while you dive deep into God. Not only do we build homes, but we have a number of other ministries that you will be able to get involved with throughout each week (i.e. orphanages, homeless ministry, at risk youth, bible study amongst deportees, and others).

Each week you’ll have lectures that challenge and provoke you in your relationship with God.  There are also daily times for quiet-times, worship, bible reading and fellowship with others.  You also will have a YWAM staff member who will be walking along side of you and investing into you and praying for you.  In the lecture phase you'll also read through the whole New Testament by simply reading 30 minutes a day with your bible reading group! 

Our 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.  Some possible outreach locations for this school may include Asia, Southern Mexico, Europe, Central and South America, but we are always adding new locations and continually strive to seek Gods guidance in where we lead outreaches to each year.
