What is Arts & Fitness DTS?
The Discipleship & Training School (DTS) is your chance to experience God like never before. It is an intense, rewarding and fun 5-month learning experience, including a 3-month lecture phase at a YWAM base in Brazil and a 2-month field assignment/outreach.
During the DTS you will not only study the Word of God, but will find out how to make it real in your own life, learning to hear the voice of God and letting Him change your heart. The DTS is your chance to intensely seek the face of the Lord and to know the joy of having intimacy with the Creator. Each DTS offers opportunities of local, national and international outreaches.
The DTS is a training program that offers people the opportunity to have their character and personality strengthened to know God’s purpose for their lives. The main emphasis of the program is to know God in a deeper way and to provide the students with favorable circumstances to mature their relationship with the Lord and with people around them.
One of the fundamental principles of the University of the Nations is the scripture of 2 Peter 1: 5 – you also, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, there is a sequence involved. If the DTS is something, it is about faith and character. You build faith and character. This is the DTS.

How does the school work?
Lecture Phase: It lasts for three months. In the mornings you will have your quiet time with God and classes until lunch time. In the afternoons, depending on the day of the week, you will participate in work duties, communication work or creative evangelism training. There will also be small groups, one on one discipleship, intercession, etc, Most of the evenings will be free for personal study, reading and preparation of academic work.
Outreach Phase: It lasts two months. After successfully completing the 3-month lecture phase, the students will be sent as a team to an outreach in a mission’s field in Brazil or abroad for the 2-month field assignment. The emphasis of the outreach is to apply everything that was learned during the lecture phase, with active participation in creative evangelism, training, discipleship, mercy, and service.
Reading is a fundamental aspect of the learning process. The academic direction DTS Arts & Fitness adopts some books as a base for studies throughout the school.
