Arrival day is September 19th!

Please arrive between 1pm and 4pm.

Let us know if you need a ride from the airport.

It is required that each participant has their passport upon arrival. The process can take 4-6 weeks. Keep in mind many countries do not allow you to travel within 6 months of your passport expiration date. If you do not have a valid passport for the duration of your school, please apply for one or renew your existing passport immediately. This process can take 4-6 weeks and you do not want to risk missing out on outreach opportunities and not graduating the DTS. You can apply at your local post office or renew your passport online.

We will not have thanksgiving week off. We may continue with the normal DTS schedule or have a fun meal together. For Christmas, you can expect to take a week-long break before returning to jump right into outreach. 

Lecture Phase:

$4,000

Outreach Phase: 

  • Outreach Phase funds will be raised as a group. Each student can expect to have a goal of contributing $4,000-$5,000 towards outreach.
  • All outreach donations must go to YWAM Nashville and will receive a tax deductible receipt. All donations are final and cannot be refunded.
  • During Lecture Phase we will provide some fundraising training. Let us know if you would like a document with some basic fundraising info and tips in the meantime.

The accommodations for all single students will be dormitory style. The accommodations for families will be one room or more depending on the housing available and the number of children in the family. Students can expect to share restroom facilities with their roommates. Because of limited  space in the dorms, please limit the number of personal items you bring.

Most of the weekends will be filled with free time although some weekends may be used for ministry or other school functions. Therefore, we ask that you do not make plans for personal holidays or nights away without first clearing it with your school leader or school staff.

Time off for Thanksgiving is TBD. For Christmas, you can expect to take a week-long break before returning to jump right into outreach. 

Your family and friends are welcome to send you mail and packages during you DTS at the address below. Please have them write “DTS” next to your name. Our mailing address is:

Your Name – DTS

5801 Keysburg RD

Adams, TN 37010

All transportation for the school will be covered by the staff. Additional transportation such as weekend free time trips, are not guaranteed, but most of the time arrangements can be made. We encourage students to bring their own cars because we are not in walking distance of any major stores. We also want you to explore Nashville on the weekends! We have a parking area available so your car can stay here while you are on outreach.

Yes! Your schedule will be very busy during the week, but there may be some weekends with no planned activities. We have a limited amount of hospitality rooms available for guests. Those are great for your friends and family to come stay with us! You can check availability by sending an email to hospitality@ywamnashville.org. It is a good idea to book in advance, as these rooms fill up quickly. Please talk to your school leader before making plans.

Different outreach locations require different attire and gear as the climate of countries varies greatly. We will go over the specifics with you on the country we are going to during one of the outreach prep sessions when you get here. A few things you can count on needing are: 

  • large hiking pack (50-65L)
  • a day pack (20-40L)
  • travel pillow
  • quick dry towel
  • good walking shoes

DTS is one program with two crucial parts. Both lecture and outreach are required if you’re signing up for DTS. If there are reasons you cannot attend the overseas outreach we will make other options available to you.
