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 experience the heart of God by living in community with other families, hearing from seasoned missionaries and international teachers, and engaging in worship and intercession for the nations. Meanwhile, your school age children will be learning the same topics in the Family Sync School. They will be participating in their own times of intercession and worship, gain understanding about their role in the family and 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, etc.
Throughout the week parents and children will spend intentional time together processing the week’s topics. Your family will also be strengthened with team-building activities and local ministry opportunities. Our goal is to not only 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.
