Media, Art and Photography DTS

Starts Every: April

In response to COVID-19 restriction, we’ve had to temporarily scale back from the 20+ DTSes we usually run each year. Read more about our usual range here or find out about our upcoming October 2021 DTS and January 2022 DTS!

The Media, Art and Photography DTS is a chance for you to discover how God wants to use your gifts and passion for His purposes, while getting the fullness of all a DTS offers. 

God the Creator wants to use the creativity and artistic skill He’s placed in us for His glory. The MAPDTS is for people who want to press into relationship with God while learning to utilise their love of media and the arts to bring His Kingdom on this earth as it is in heaven. 

Get started with three months of focused learning and growth in our international missions community. Our live/learn approach means encountering God doesn’t happen just in the classroom, but in the streets and in serving practically, in small group discussions, in worship and more. We’ll look at topics like hearing God’s voice, the character of God, missions and taking the gospel public. We’ll also include workshops designed specifically to train you to use your creative gifts to glorify God and share His love with others.

On outreach we’ll head to different countries, ready to communicate the love of God in words, action, and creativity. We integrate creative expression into the core elements of outreach: discipleship, evangelism and mercy ministries. We look for all kinds of opportunities to use our gifts to reach and serve others.

We’ll wrap up with a week in Perth, celebrating what God has done and looking ahead to what He has next. Whether it’s across the street or across the globe, we come alive as we find our place in His purposes! 


A DTS opens doors to all kinds of training and missions opportunities! We invite you to get further training at YWAM Perth through courses such as our Art Evangelists School, or join staff to continue the journey of serving Jesus in the nations with an initiative like Create International or Cygnet Films.

While in Togo, we met people who were ready to receive God daily. One day, we met a woman who practiced witchcraft. Her husband had recently left her and she was in desperate need of support and freedom. As we approached the house, the woman said she had already been thinking about receiving Jesus. Amazed at how God had gone before us, I shared my personal testimony of seeing God as a provider and having a relationship with Him. We then led her through a process of repenting of the witchcraft she has done and accepting Jesus as her Lord and Saviour.
