Caleb did his DTS when he was 18. After DTS, YWAM helped launch him back into working at his home church for 4 years.
“YWAM helped me grow in authenticity before God, in YWAM I learned the freedom that comes when submitting every sin and fear to Jesus and living honestly and authentically before God and others.
I grew in my passion and calling to worship and lead others to do the same, I learned to do this through teaching the Bible, through mentorship, and through corporate worship too.”
“In YWAM, God showed me the plans that He has for my life. I knew that I wanted to live for something bigger and greater than simply the dreams that I had for my own life. I learned what dependency on God looks like and that I don’t need to be something special in order to partner with God, ultimately He just requires my availability!
At 21, God led me to re-pioneer YWAM Greece. Growing up in Greece, I never felt like I truly had a community that I belonged to and Greece was the last place I imagined being a missionary in. God gave me a heart to not just reach my own nation, but to also train and send Greeks abroad as missionaries.
YWAM helped me step into God’s dream to see a lasting transformation take place in Greece. I was able to build a team, grow in leadership, and have access to incredible network of YWAM resources to see YWAM in Greece re-pioneered.”
"During my time with YWAM, God confirmed my calling. Through the speakers and ministry opportunities in DTS, God gave me a vision to use music as a prophetic voice for healing, restoration, and revival for all nations.
Living in a cross-cultural community was full of moments of spiritual growth, enriching lessons, and practical opportunities each day to complement the many lectures we had. As one of the older students (24), God also began to give me a vision for discipleship and mentoring."
"'What are you going to do with your life?'
We're all asked that question at the end of school. I used to think career, but through DTS I understood that the calling God has for each of us is bigger than the career path we take.
God cares about what I do in a practical sense, but He cares more about having relationship with us. I became drawn to healthcare, particularly in caring for low socioeconomic and marginalised people groups.
My calling is to "love the Lord with all my heart, soul and mind," no matter where I'm at in life. Today I am a paramedic, called to care for people: spirit, soul and mind."
Hey DTS grads, do you have a story to share?
Shoot us a message we'd love
to hear what you're doing today!
This is a story of visions aligning.
At first sight, this might seem a strange combination. I certainly have felt like the odd one out in many situations....
For many years in the past, Latin America was a place where thousands of missionaries from other countries invested...
Christianity isn't a dying faith - it's...
