Aside from being a hill-bomb dreamland, San Francisco is a city rich in skateboarding history. It's home to famous street spots such as Pier 7, 3rd & Army, Hubba Heaven and Wallenberg, as well as a community of influential skateboarders who take part in shaping the skate culture worldwide.
Discipleship Training School is a six-month program in which students are immersed in weekly learning alongside continual ministry involvement. Students spend three months in downtown San Francisco, learning from a variety of teachers and working with initiatives of YWAM SF, then three months overseas, where they are plunged into full-time, daily ministry.
The Winter DTS runs from January to June, with an outreach focus on Italy and the Mediterranean. Since 2002, YWAM San Francisco has been committed to sending DTS teams to Rome, Italy. This consistency has allowed for long-term relationships with our contacts in the country and develop a passion and understanding for how God is moving in Italy.

YWAM San Francisco started as a small seed of faith, planted more than 20 years ago. Since then, we’ve put down roots and watched the ministry grow. As we’ve committed to a place, God has borne fruit — relationships, discipleship and transformation — in the midst of our neighborhood. As we look forward, we’re continuing a commitment to our call by paying down the mortgage on our ministry center, digging deeper and preparing for the harvest ahead.
On Friday, August 26th, YWAM located at 357 Ellis Street, in San Francisco will be proud to host: An Evening Of Frank Dialogue On The State Of Race Relations And The Mounting Protests Over Police Abuse
Our panelists will be Jerallyn Brown-Blueford of the Alan Blueford Center For Justice: a mother whose son was slaughtered by an Oakland Police officer on May 6th 2012 and Jack Bryson of the Oscar Grant Foundation. Bryson’s sons were present with Oscar Grant on the BART platform on the evening that he was shot to death. That fateful night began Jack’s life of activism. The event will be moderated by Reverend Harry Louis Williams, II, a highly regarded Bay Area community activist and author of the bestselling novel Straight Outta East Oakland.
