The Blessing of Intentional Discipleship

By Abby Gilliland on 1 Jul 2022

One of the biggest lessons I've learned is the power of intentional discipleship.

When I signed up for my Discipleship Training School (DTS), I assumed because of the name that there would be discipleship involved, but I had no idea how intentional YWAM Tyler is in the discipleship process.

Straight Outta School With No Clue What to Do

By Allison Bice on 7 Mar 2018

“What do you want to do after you graduate?”

I laughed nervously. I had been asked this several times during my senior year of high school, and I had no clue what I wanted to do. And graduation was just a few months away!

Normal people, Abnormal lives, God-Given Destiny

By Tyler Tom on 22 Jan 2018

You're an ordinary young person. You've checked off some educational boxes and are now trying to figure out some kind of direction for your life. The idea that God might be calling you into a life of radical missions seems too far-fetched to even warrant consideration. Only special people become missionaries, right? Wrong!

Revelation in the Probation Office

By Anthony Huerta on 17 Jan 2018

 A few weeks ago, sitting in the office of my probation officer, we began a conversation much like we do each visit, about current global events/disasters/atrocities, which inevitably leads to the big question, “What really is God’s perspective on it all?”

New Year, No Limits

By Tyler Tom on 12 Jan 2018

2018 is here! What will it bring? Will this year end with you sitting in exactly the same spot as you are right now?

It doesn't have to! This could be your year to break out of the familiar into the unknown. This could be your time to push through whatever has held you back from pursuing your dream to make a difference in this world.

A YWAM DTS Has Long Lasting Impact

By Amy Fish on 20 Oct 2017

"Everybody's got a story. and it's not the one they're telling." Donald Miller

Donald Miller's writings always provoke me to think deeply. Through vulnerably sharing his own personal stories, Donald essentially holds up a mirror and invites all to look inward. God's creation is quite marvelous, but too often we don't marvel at the reflection we see. Instead, we criticize and scrutinize. This type of self-barragement is unhealthy.
