Crossroads DTS is for people who are at a “crossroads” in life who need to make important decisions, changes and also sense that the Lord is calling them to step out of their day-to-day life and spend a season of time with Him.

About the Crossroads DTS

Crossroads DTS (CDTS) is YWAM’s primary discipleship training program created specifically for people aged 30 and above (but not limited) and is open to singles and couples. CDTS provides an exciting opportunity to explore and develop your calling into missions and ministry. Those who come are often seeking spiritual renewal, vision, or new direction. We invite you to be revived and refreshed spiritually and to go deeper in your walk with God. Come and be challenged and inspired and continue to grow in the call of God upon your life whether you are being called into missions long term or seeking to influence the area where God will place you.


Our goal is to see you grow in your relationship with God and recognize that the natural outflow of that is to bring the gospel to others. We want to equip you to reach the lost, care for the poor and needy and convey Jesus’ message to a world who needs to know Him. Come alongside others who have similar goals and vision, learn together and sharpen one another as you serve God’s purposes.


The program consists of three months of classroom training (lecture phase) and 12 weeks field experience (outreach phase).

The Lecture Phase

A CDTS is sometimes referred to as a school of the Holy Spirit. During these 3 months students will engage in interactive classroom study with guest speakers enhanced with small groups and individual mentoring. The emphasis is living discipleship as a lifestyle—meaning that a life spent following Jesus is one spent constantly learning and being refined to be more like Him.

Students also will have work duties to emphasize working as a team and living life with the heart of a servant. The lifestyle is simple—multicultural and international—with meals eaten together in a community dining room.
