Become a Messenger

We are a movement of young leaders living out the lifestyle of Jesus.


Discipleship Training School

In every generation, there are ones who shape history. Who use their unique voice to be agents of change in their time. Messengers.

This is what Messenger Discipleship Training School was designed for. Twelve dynamic weeks of training. Eight weeks impacting a foreign nation.

One life-changing experience.

DTS Curriculum

Each DTS consists of 12 powerful weeks of training and 8 weeks in the mission field where you get to touch hundreds of lives with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Speakers from around the world will teach you how to use the power of the Holy Spirit and the Bible to bring heaven down to earth. You’ll have one-on-one discipleship times with your DTS staff and learn how to work with your team in various class activities.

Jan/July/Sept 2024

The Messenger Focus is designed to develop and train leaders to have the lifestyle, heart posture, and voice of a Biblical messenger. We believe that being a true messenger means living for something more than yourself, by meeting the needs of the world through the love and truth of Jesus.

Justice & Compassion


Become the hands and feet of Jesus.

The Justice & Compassion Focus is the mercy ministry focus of YWAM KC's Discipleship Training School. You will learn what biblical justice is and how to combat different social injustices with the love of Jesus through Holy Spirit-guided compassion. This focus will involve reaching out to people with God’s perspective of justice and His standards of compassion while sharing the gospel with the lost, the least, and the unloved.

Worship & Prayer

Until Every Nation Sings

The Worship & Prayer Focus is led by One Eleven Global. This focus will help you develop your skills in music, voice, leading worship, leading prayer, or prophetic art. In the context of a vibrant prayer room, you’ll be a part of a worship team and be equipped to lead worship and prayer.

One Eleven Global is a ministry that desires to make disciples who love God first at the center of everything they do. Their mission is to launch fiery worshipers into every nation, filled with the zeal of God for lost people to be made joyful in His family.
