The Lecture Phase

The Photo-Storytelling DTS runs bilingually in both English & Spanish. The DTS opens with a three month lecture phase where students discover more about who God is while surrounded by His beauty in Baja California, Mexico just south of San Diego.  Each week students have a new guest speaker, and each week focuses on a different topic. In addition there will be times each week where the students have classes and training to sharpen your skills of writing and photography. Students also get to serve a long side some of our weekly local ministries, building relationships and using their media gifts. 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.
