Creativity is an amazing gift that God has given us to express ourselves and reflect His beauty to the world around us. We love being able to worship the Lord using creative expressions. Our desire for The Music & Arts Collective DTS is to bring musicians and artists together, experiencing God in deep and transforming ways and equipping you to radically impact the world through your creative expression of Gods love! Are you hungry to grow deep in your relationship with God? Come and use your passion for creativity and reach out to the broken and hurting through the arts!
We're looking for students who use their Music & Artistic expressions as a way to show how amazing our God is! Push the boundaries and grow in your ability to write music and create! In this school you will seek to use your talents as a tool to explain the meaning of your art and draw others into a deep vibrant relationship with God. We are passionate about reflecting the redemptive power of Jesus and call others to worship!

The DTS begins with the lecture phase at our Ensenada campus, located on the beach front in Baja California, Mexico. We'll dive deep into who God is through lectures, worship, prayer, community living and reading through the scriptures. In this time we'll grow together as a class and you'll also have a staff member challenging and walking with you as you grow in your relationship with God. Lectures will be together in the mornings, while in the afternoons students will break off into their Collective Tracks (Music in Mission &Visual Arts). More Details about each track are found below.
Students will choose to join either the Music or the Arts Track. Each track is designed to help Musicians and Artists develop their skills and get creative. Both tracks will also collaborate on projects and events throughout the DTS. We want to create Music & Art from a place of identity, understanding how God has uniquely gifted and wired each one of us. We seek to have our creativity come from knowing and worshiping God. Worship comes when we know God as he is. What has He called you to create?

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. The lecture phase includes food, housing as well as your tuition all for $3,190 USD.

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!
Since our base is located in beautiful Baja California, Mexico, our DTS's are bilingual, and there are many diverse ministry opportunities.
