Are you desiring to be discipled in all that God has for you?
The Visual Arts DTS is a 6-month discipleship course. It’s a full-on discipleship experience with a focus on Visual Arts: drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, graphic design, photography, and filmmaking.
This is not for the faint of heart, but for those who want to be challenged, developed, and creative. A DTS is the best environment for learning who you were created to be, realizing the strength you have to bless others and recognizing your calling to make a difference in the world. It is a time devoted to seeking after the Kingdom of God. You will learn how to initiate change in the world, starting in your own life and then releasing that into the community around you and the rest of the world. It’s an adventure that will change you life!
God wants to speak to us everyday. The DTS teaches you to confidently listen for what God is speaking over your life in a variety of ways. At the same time, it creates opportunities for you to hear God’s voice on what He’s saying about others. God has a vision and purpose for your life that He wants to share with you. The DTS will help you seek out the dreams that will motivate you, and fuel your passion. Then, you will learn the steps required to make those dreams a reality. It’s just the beginning of a journey in growing your relationship with God!
Do you desire to learn how to grow your gifts and skills in the visual arts and use them to bless the nations?
The Visual Arts DTS is about conveying truth and bringing to light stories that need to be told. It is these stories that motivate and form our society for change. Ultimately, it’s about you and your relationship with God. The Visual Arts DTS is not intended to dramatically increase your technical skill (although you will certainly gain valuable training and experience while you’re here). The intention of the Visual Arts DTS, first and foremost, is to help you learn to use your existing talent and to celebrate God and His creation. YWAM places a high value on the reality that God has blessed us in order that we can be a blessing to others (Genesis 12). Our Visual Arts DTS will spiritually and practically prepare you to see the nations transformed by the love of God through your creativity.
