Music is an amazing gift that God has given us to express ourselves and to communicate truth. In this DTS, discover how Music & Missions can work together to see how God beauty conveyed and communicated to the lost. Have you ever wanted to wrote songs that testify about our Lord? The Music and Missions DTS takes place at our campus in Ensenada, which sits directly across from the beautiful oceanfront. Our campus is a bilingual community, with both English and Spanish speakers. From your first day here, you’ll experience rich diversity and cultural experiences.
The leaders of this school have a heart for music, and for sharing God’s love with the lost. We fully believe that we can use our God-given talents to glorify Him by bringing others into the Kingdom. During the Lecture Phase of this DTS, the standard curriculum will be enhanced to have this focus.
Your talents were made to be used. In this DTS you will not only develop your abilities, but you will strive to direct them toward a greater cause.
We will be diving into some of today’s most pressing social justice issues and examining what we can do to help. We will reach out creatively with our abilities to declare God's Kingdom here and bring transformation.
Bring your passion for missions and be ready to share what you do best in the broad arena of music! Most of all, come to draw near to God and expect Him to do great things. The five-month long DTS has two phases: Lecture Phase and Outreach Phase. The Lecture Phase is three months of discipleship, spiritual training, and Bible study. The goal of Lecture Phase is to equip you for missions by surrounding you with incredible leaders who help you grow, and flying in speakers from around the world who challenge you in your faith.
The Outreach Phase is two months of various ministry opportunities in different countries. These opportunities will allow you to apply what you learned during the Lecture Phase. On outreach, students have awesome experiences and make memories they will never forget!
So whether you excel in songwriting, musicianship, production, or are interested in expanding your knowledge, come join us! If you want to grow in your abilities and your relationship with Jesus Christ, then the Music and Missions DTS is an experience that will impact your life forever.

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!
