DTS Surf & Sports



the YWAM surfers DTS is an experience for those who enjoy surfing and other sports and have a desire to take time to know God in a deeper way and share the good news of Christ with the world.

Our base is located about 220 kilometers from the capital Santiago, in the coastal town of Pichilemu. Our town has quickly become a destination for Surfers from all over the world. Apart from having world-class waves, our base has a sports center called Centro Integral Pura Vida with a semi-Olympic size pool, a gym and other sports related activities that we use to reach and serve the local community.

As with other DTS's, the main focus of the school is to have a special time with God! Separated to focus on him, to know him and to make him known. This time is divided into two main parts:

During the first three months we spend time learning more about God character and his plan for our lives. This is accomplished in the classroom but also in times of prayer, devotionals, worship, and service. Of course we alway have time set aside to surfing and other sports throughout this process.

After three months of growing in with God, it's time to practice what we have learned. We spend the next two months in different parts of South America serving others and sharing the gospel. We also spend some time in different parts of Chile. Every school is different in terms of the outreach location but in the past we have sent teams to: Peru, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil and Dominican Republic.  

The DTS, registered as: Discipleship Training School DSP211, Discipleship Training School Assignment DSP212 is a prerequisite for all other courses at the University of the Nations and to serve as staff in Youth With A Mission.
