Dream of sharing your stories with the world? Come, grow and deepen your passion for the lost as you gain deeper understanding of who God is and who you are in Him. In our Photo-Storytelling DTS, you will be able to use and pursue the arts and photography to communicate and advocate on behalf of others and learn how to use social media as a tool for His kingdom. This DTS is run at our beautiful San Antonio Del Mar campus, just south of the U.S border in Mexico. We're looking for students who are passionate about God and passionate about how to communicate His goodness!
Your gift as an artist does not separate from your calling; they can be one in the same. The heart of this DTS is to cultivate a life of intimacy with Christ and to train students on effective and powerful communication. We want to be a voice of what God is doing in the nations through photography as well as writing!
During the lecture phase, there will be weekly teachings designed to help you grow in the knowledge of the nature and character of God. In addition there will be time each week where we have training to sharpen your skills of writing and photography. You will also have a chance to serve a long side some of our weekly local ministries, building relationships and using your media gift.
The DTS is a 5-month course that will challenge and sharpen your walk with God! The first 3 months are spent in a learning atmosphere, and are followed by 2 months of outreach where students will head out into the nations to share the love of Christ. Our Photography & Missions DTS outreach focus will be a refugee focus! We will be traveling to Greece/ Other European nations, to be the hands and feet of Jesus and to be a voice for the refugees. God’s heart is for the lost, the broken and the misplaced. We desire to be apart of what God is doing among the Syrian refugees and to share that with others!

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!
