Discipleship Training Course

The Discipleship Training Course focuses on intimacy with God, radical heart transformation, biblical worldview, and world missions.  Our most recent DTC’s were at two South Jersey locations, with local outreaches, and online discussions.

God works in the lives of DTC participants through speakers and times of prayer and discussions each week.  DTC topics include Knowing God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Understanding How to Hear God’s Voice, Right Relationships, Intercessory Prayer, Spiritual Warfare, and God’s Callings. We may also tackle global-local issues like Human Trafficking and Poverty.  Guest speakers include YWAM missionaries and local ministry leaders.  Outreaches will typically stay local in Philadelphia or Atlantic City. However, DTC outreaches may include an international team, such as our recent team to Northern Ireland.  

The Next DTC’s will be short-courses with three weeknight lessons and a single day outreach.  Watch for announcements.


The DTC wasn’t anything like what I thought. It wasn’t just a class. When I was reading the book “When Helping Hurts,” and thinking about being in missions, I realized I don’t stand a chance in ministry without God. Elijah Trulli

I am thrilled to be part of YWAM’s DTC team. Participating in the weekly meetings, receiving God’s word from inspiring and encouraging leaders, and sharing fellowship and prayer time with fellow believers who are earnestly seeking to reach out in love to others in our own community and beyond, have all blessed me immeasurably. The book “When Helping Hurts” has positively altered my thinking about the scope of short-term missions. Debbie Wilkins
