Family DTS / Family Missions

Our Family DTS at YWAM Tyler is a unique expression of our traditional DTS and Crossroads DTS with an emphasis on  discipleship for the entire family.  During your DTS, parents will combine with either the Classic or Crossroads DTS for lectures, intercession and worship.  Meanwhile, your school age children will be learning about the same lecture topics in the Family Sync School.  They will also engage in their own times of intercession and worship, learn about God’s heart for the nations and their part to play in the Great Commission, all the while learning to hear and obey God’s voice.  At various times throughout the week, your family will have the opportunity to worship together, have family devotionals, engage in interactive intercession together, etc.

Every Friday is set aside as Family Focused Fridays.  Parents and children will spend the whole day together processing the week’s topics during small group time, learning the family perspective on  the week’s teaching, strengthening  your  family with team-building activities and serving together through local mission opportunities.  Our goal is not only to synchronize the parent’s and children’s DTS experience but also to prepare each family member for a lifetime of service to the Kingdom of God.

The outreach phase of DTS will provide your family the opportunity for a family mission trip: to put into practice all the things you’ve learned in lecture phase.  Outreaches are unique to each school and the location(s) will be determined after your arrival to DTS.

Lecture Phase

The lecture phase of the DTS focuses on – “To Know God.”  It is an intentional time that emphasizes heart transformation and character development.  During the Family DTS lecture phase, parents and children alike are awakened to discover the heart of God and learn His ways.

In DTS, knowing God personally and intimately is the bottom line.

Outreach Phase

The outreach phase focuses on the practical application of – “To Make Him Known”. This time of serving others provides an immediate opportunity for parents and children to put into practice the principles they have learned during their lecture phase.

Your family will be able to deliver God’s message of love, life and hope through Christ that brings healing to the nations!  Through evangelism, stories, dramas, church ministry and practical help for the poor and needy, your family will be able to see the transforming power of the Gospel.

Prayer is a vital part of our Christian walk. It is during these times that we grab hold of God’s heart. Engage in rich times of prayer and grow your faith by diving into powerful times of intercession as you seek to hear and see the world through God’s eyes. Join YWAM Tyler staff in weekly corporate prayer times to lift up, strengthen, and support missionaries from all over the globe as well as intercede for people groups and nations that desperately need Jesus.

God wants us all to see that worship is a way of life. As we worship our Savior and King, we are then catapulted into action. As we focus on the greatness, victory, and beauty of Yahweh, we are captivated by His love. Grow deeper in your intimacy with God by immersing yourself in wonderful times of worship. From that place joy, faithfulness, and ministry spring forth.

Relationship is the essential message of YWAM. First with God, then with others. Small groups are a place where lifelong relationships with your classmates begin. As you walk through this eye-opening and inspiring time, join others to discuss what God is showing you.

God does many things in and through your time here at YWAM Tyler and we want to be available to help you process everything He is doing in your life. Link up with a mentor who walks with you through your time here on the ranch. Ask the hard questions. Say anything. We are ready.
