Featured September DTS:



The aPAC DTS is designed to take you on a journey to know God, to know His heart for you, and His heart for the world. You will discover the depths of the Father's love, know His delight and affirmation, and in the power of the Holy Spirit, fulfill God's call to be light for the nations (Isaiah 42:5-13).

Getting to know God in the aPAC (Pacific Asia) DTS is a unique experience. We are a family who celebrate and honor every individual giving them a sense of belonging and significance. These values, along with the warrior's passion and strength are reflected in who we are and in all we do.

Join the aPAC Ohana (family) as we grow together in intimacy with God and passionately follow Him.

* This school is open to everyone, not just those that have done a DTS with YWAM

250 years ago a wild breed of men were unleashed into the wilderness of America not unlike the 12 young, zealous disciples that Jesus sent out in Matthew chapter 10. The mandate for these young circuit riders:  Take the gospel to the remote corners of America's frontier.

“No family was too poor, no house too filthy, no town too remote, and no people too ignorant to receive the good news that life could be better.”

Their message: The kingdom of God has come, repent, be baptized and follow Jesus. Their payment: A mere 60 dollars a year if anything at all. The cost: Their very lives. 50% died before reaching 33 years old. Their reward: Nothing in terms of societal success and yet everything in terms of the glory of God! These leaders lived for a cause greater than themselves. They were dangerous to the enemy, and powerful in the hand of the Almighty God!

The Circuit Riders of old were forerunners in their day. The same call is going out again, God is raising up their example for today’s forerunner generation! The mode and methods have changed, but the mandate, message and cost of the Circuit Rider remain the same. The nations are crying out in darkness. Who will go and gather the lost all over the Earth? Who will go and awaken the Church to the joy of living fully alive in Jesus?
