If you have a heart for youth ministry, DTS in Philadelphia is a great choice for you! Our Discipleship Training School is a five month missions training with a focus on ministering to and empowering youth.

Lecture Phase

Spend three months deepening your relationship with God through teachings, small groups, worship, devotions, and more. At the same time you’ll put your faith into action through our weekly evangelism times throughout Philadelphia. During the training you’ll also spend time planning for our summer missions experience for teens and learning how to communicate with youth and plan events and outreaches for them. 


For the last two months, you will put all you learned into practice during your outreach by sharing God’s love and your story with people and participation in the teen ministry you helped plan. Your outreach will be both overseas and in states.

We are located within the city limits of Philadelphia and are only 20-30 minutes from Center City.
