Important details

Arrival day is September 21st!

Please try your best to arrive between 9am and 4pm.

As you saw in your acceptance packet, we sent you a book called “Is That Really You God?”

This book will give you a great introduction into some of the values and history of YWAM.

You must read the whole book before arriving on Sept. 21st.

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.

Your graduation will be held on Saturday, March 11th, 2023. Your family and friends are welcome to attend! You should plan on leaving YWAM Nashville after graduation or on the 12th. You are responsible to arrange your travel home from YWAM Nashville.

FAQ's

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.

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 weeklong 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:

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.

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 any reasons you cannot attend the outreach or do not desire to, we won’t accept you into the DTS program.
