Why DTS Taipei?

Upcoming Schools

YWAM Taipei is a frontier focused base. Therefore, the Taipei DTS will work alongside the Frontier Missions department, which aims to reach the lost in East Asia. DTS students will receive first hand information about the mission field and meet our missionaries. Our base is located in the frontier, enabling us to do Evangelism and Ministry throughout the Lecture Phase.

I first went to because I had many questions about life and my purpose in it. I knew of God but I didn’t have a personal relationship with Him. If God was real then what did He require of me? I had heard that YWAM Taipei had one of the best schools in the region for answering questions about who God is and what our relationship was with God. After going through DTS in Taiwan God really met me in a powerful way and completely changed my life. I realized who I was in Christ and that the Creator of the Universe wanted a personal relationship with me. Doing DTS in Taiwan also helped me to realize that the Christian life isn’t about myself. It is about sharing the story of Jesus, displaying the love of the Father, and letting the Holy Spirit work powerfully through me. Because Taiwan is in a frontier location, I got the opportunity to know what it is like to share the gospel with people who are hearing about it for the first time. To actually do what Jesus says in Matthew chapter 28 has been the greatest gift that DTS Taiwan has to offer. You are not merely learning about making the Lord known, but you are actually living it here in Taiwan!

God used DTS to teach me the very important character trait of HUMILITY. I was 31 when I did my DTS. I was a lot older than most of my DTS classmates and had a lot more “work” experience than both my classmates and DTS leaders. I learned that leadership authority is not about age or work experience, but it is about who God chooses to put in that position.DTS also helped me get rid of my “sense of entitlement”, I really learned to appreciate and be grateful for privileges that I had instead of feeling entitled to them.


I loved how DTS Taiwan is strongly rooted in the word of God. I remember from my DTS lectures how each point a lecturer would make had a biblical back-up.
