Radical World Changer DTS
Current School September 2023
Next School September 2024
Discipleship Training School, or DTS, is a 6-month immersive missions training course designed with the heart of knowing God and making Him known. The course involves formal and informal personal faith development and training, practical application, and functioning in Christ-centered community. DTS consists of two phases: lecture phase and outreach phase.
During the lecture phase, you will be fully immersed in a live-learn environment, actively engaging in a community of Radical World Changers as we pursue the Lord together, encountering Jesus through lectures, worship, prayer, conversations, meals, practical work, evangelism and more. Our desire is that life at YWAM Seamill would be centered around the presence of Jesus and we would be moved to action from there! We typically have 10-11 weeks of lecture phase at the beginning of the school, then 2-3 weeks at the end after returning from outreach. Typical lecture topics may include: Nature and Character of God, Holy Spirit, Biblical Worldview, Identity, Relationships, Missions, and more!
This is where you will take the things you learned during the lecture phase and look to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those who don’t know Him yet. We learn best by putting into practice what we have learned – what you give generously to others, you keep for eternity. Outreach is about going out into the nations, so the location may be anywhere in the world! Outreach locations are prayed about by staff and announced during the lecture phase. We will have a 2-week outreach in the middle of lecture phase, then a 10-week outreach after lecture phase. Typical outreach ministries may include: partnering with churches, children’s work, physical labour, street evangelism, prayer and intercession, mercy ministries (such as food banks, orphanages), and more.

Seamill is nestled within a small quiet village on the west coast of Scotland. Our base is ideally situated on a hill looking out on the water and the stunning Isle of Arran. It is a perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and seek the Lord. Our community is focused on the centrality of Jesus’ Presence in everything we do and every part of our lives. The base functions as a place for many to get away to be challenged, refreshed, and equipped, then sent out to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Come seek His presence with us in a beautiful part of the world He created!
Check out some photos of the wonderful building and grounds God has blessed us with to use as a place to live, work, and be equipped to build His Kingdom, as well as some snapshots of the beach just a 5-minute walk from the base!
Hi, I’m Sam! I am from Bavaria in Germany, and have been on staff with
YWAM Seamill since 2017. I lead the SSMD program here as well as
leading the DTS. Some of my passions include music and traveling.
I love Jesus and live to love Him more. I look forward to journeying
with you and pursuing the more of God together!
Hi! I’m Amanda and I’m 29 years old, originally from Sweden.
I have been in YWAM for 5 years since I did my DTS, and I’ll be
co-leading this upcoming school. I enjoy walks, a good cup of coffee, and
fellowship with friends over a meal or game. I’m quite gifted in
making bad puns (but I find it hilarious). I love having deep
conversations about Jesus and walking with people as they come to
know Him more. I am so looking forward to having you join our community
in this upcoming season and getting to know Jesus more together.
Hey, I am Tom. I’m 26, and I love road trips and campfires. I am a Dutchy
and before coming to YWAM I was a fruit farmer, so I love to be busy and
do all kinds of practical things. I also love the prophetic and exploring the
gifts of the Holy Spirit. I’m very excited to do this school with you guys and
step into what Jesus has for us all!
Hey there! My name is Marlee and I’m from Iowa, USA. I’m 27, and I have been on
staff at Seamill for about a year. A few things I enjoy are singing, running, drinking
lattes and eating peanut butter. I get excited about seeing people break free from
lies and step into freedom, especially in the area of identity! I’m so excited to
go on this great journey with you all and encounter Jesus’ great love together.
My name is Nicole, I’m 20 years old. I am from Slave Lake, Alberta, Canada. I did my
DTS here at Seamill in 2022. I enjoy playing guitar, studying languages, and sightseeing
in Scotland. Fun fact: I will eat almost anything for breakfast, including chicken wings
or pasta. My goal in life is to live fearlessly and boldly for Jesus. I am excited to be here in
Scotland, and looking forward to see what God has for me. I am excited to meet you all!
“A big highlight [from outreach so far] has been seeing God perform a bunch of little miracles to lead us to people. A few of us had the amazing opportunity to have a meal with a man, answer some of his questions about Jesus and the Bible, and just share truth with him. It was so much fun letting God lead us and relying on His faithfulness.”
“During DTS, God brought my relationship with Him to a far deeper level, especially growing me in my trust in Him. I learned what it means to be joyful in Him and to excitedly praise God for who He is. I got to experience God working in and with me to build His Kingdom. Through this, I received a greater freedom, knowing that it is God’s work that I get to be a part of and not the other way around.”
“During DTS I essentially began my relationship with God. It really was the push I needed to actually seek a meaningful connection with Him and to grow in my understanding of the purpose I serve in His kingdom, and what His place is in my life.”
