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
Start Date: June 5th - Nov. 20th
The Cost: Lecture phase $3,000 (Includes food, lodging, books)
Outreach phase $2,500 (visas, ground fees, food, lodging) + $1,200 for airfare
Explore God Here
Experience 3 months of lecture where your classroom is trails, campgrounds, and mountaintops
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

Make Him Known In Nepal, Thailand, or Lebanon
After being equipped in Yosemite we will take you on a 3-month adventure overseas. As you respond to Jesus’ commandment to, “Go and make disciples of all nations," you will live immersed in a culture different from your own. You will go to remote villages sharing the Gospel and making disciples.
