YWAM Yosemite

Sierra Discipleship Training School

“The mountains are calling and I must go.” 

Starts: June 2020


Take The Road Less Traveled

In the Bible, going into the wilderness deepened intimacy with God… and blessings of signs and wonders followed. The Sierra Discipleship Training School is structured around the outdoors. We will be using those elements to deepen one's own walk with God. We know that many of the unreached people in the world live in remote places. We will equip you to go there. Are you ready to go to the hardest and darkest places for His glory?

Some specific things you will learn alongside the typical DTS will be:

  • Practical leadership and character development

  • Food prep for trekking

  • Leave No Trace (LNT) training

  • Map and compass knowledge


Starts: June 10th 2020


DTS Total Cost: $6795

The entire 6 months cost includes, room and board, lecture phase materials, *outreach airfare, outreach ground fees

Lecture Phase
Know God Deeper

3 Months at YWAM Yosemite Base.
While we call the first 3 months of your DTS "Lecture Phase," you'll be doing a lot more than engaging in lectures. From exploring the trails of the Yosemite to community living, these three months will be transformative to your faith in Jesus. As you get challenged on the trail and on local outreaches, you'll be getting one-on-one discipleship and follow up. It's all about knowing God deeper, growing as a disciple of Jesus, and taking ownership of your faith.

Some of the things you will learn and be involved in during Lecture Phase are:

  • Living in a radical community of like minded people

  • Weekly lectures on elements of the faith such as Spiritual Warfare, Hearing the Voice of God, Evangelism, the Holy Spirit, Missions, and many more

  • Community outreach and service projects in the surrounding areas and Yosemite National Park

  • Worship and prayer times as a school, campus, and local community

  • Mission Adventures: You will be assisting the leadership of a week-long youth program on our campus that teaches missions and evangelism to youth groups from many places around the United States, using a camp-style approach.

  • Outdoor training and experience as we hit the trails and discover how to apply our passions towards reaching the lost
