What is a DTS?

The purpose of our life can be summarized by the motto: “To know God and make him known”. The DTS (Discipleship Training School) is all about developing this idea. This is a five month course (three months of practical teaching and two months hands-on outreach) that has been designed to help you grow in your life as a Christian and to equip you in evangelization. The schools in Madrid are bilingual, Spanish and English.  

What will you learn?

It is a school where you will learn to know God deeply AND at the same time you will discover your identity, value and destiny in Him.

Your faith will be increased, you will be able to experience and get to know other cultures during the course in national and international outreaches. It is an experience that undoubtedly changes your life.

Some of the topics you will study: How to study the Bible, Character & Nature of God, Hearing the voice of God, Worship, Intercession and Spiritual warfare, The Person & Work of Jesus, The Person & Work of Holy Spirit, Healthy Relationships, Biblical Christian Worldview, Biblical Model of Community Transformation, Voice for the Voiceless, Gifts, Calling & Destiny, Evangelism, 7 mind molders, God’s Heart for the Nations / Missions and many more themes.

Each week, lectures will be given by experienced and anointed teachers; these are well-known and recognized men and women of God. In addition to the lectures other activities include worship, intercession, small groups, fellowship, evangelism and creative workshops.


The Youth With A Mission Training Center in Madrid, located 30 minutes from the city center in Torrejón de Ardoz (Plaza Grande, 1, Poblado El Saucar).

The facilities have meeting rooms, a dining room, bedrooms (shared with 2 or 4 people) and everything necessary to host a school of this type.

During your stay you will form part of a lively community of YWAM staff and students from all over the world who live on campus. 


The next DTS in Madrid will run from 10 March to 28 July 2019. The focus isVoice for the Voiceless“.  

It is a DTS that desires to empower students to be a “Voice for the Voiceless” and to  see “God’s will done here on earth as it is in heaven”. The focus, therefore, is on the transformation of lives, families and nations by the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

You will have opportunities to put your faith into practice and see it growing as you see God at work through you. You will experience His power to transform lives, families and communities! Our focus is the voiceless, victims of injustice, orphans, street children, refugees, the poor, the needy and cross-cultural mission. Building a culture of peace by serving the felt needs of the community.

If you suffer with the victims of injustice, if you love mercy and want to see God’s supernatural intervention in and through you bringing the Gospel to every area of society, then this DTS is for you!

Whether you are a student, sports-person, communicator, artist, technician, builder, administrator, designer, photographer, social worker, lawyer, writer, or storyteller, you could be a Voice for the Voiceless.

In September the next iDTS will start with a focus on reaching people creatively through dance, theater and multimedia. For more information on the Impact ministry you can visit their page.
