Building Community through everyday rhythms in San Francisco.
In a city that praises busyness and productivity, what does it look like to slow down and practically integrate healthy rhythms into our daily life?
Our new program at YWAM San Francisco called the Urban Community Discipleship Training School (UCDTS) is designed to help build those rhythms of discipleship as a community while you continue to work in your job or study at college.
We at YWAM SF believe that intentionally building healthy rhythms in our life naturally fosters: Discipleship, personal growth, and a healthy and thriving community with a deeper sense of understanding and purpose.
Our Discipleship Training School housing and classroom is located in the Tenderloin; a neighborhood nestled in the heart of downtown San Francisco. Walking a block or two, you will experience many different people groups; individuals and families who are completely unreached by the gospel. Many of our neighbors are the most poor and marginalized populations in San Francisco. Doing your DTS here will give you daily tangible exposure to the nations and teach you how to reach out and pursue justice for the lost.
Our upcoming UCDTS will be starting this September 2018! In the next few weeks, we will be updating our application but please feel free to reach out to us at 415-885-6543 or by email at DTS@ywamsanfrancisco.org
TESTIMONY FROM A PAST STUDENT
“DTS changed my life. My faith changed and grew more in those six months than in the twenty some years before. Now, six months later, I haven’t stopped growing or changing, and I hope I never will.
I don’t want to go back to who I was before DTS. I can’t imagine going back to that. I had all my doctrinal ducks in a line and went to church every week and did some serving here and there, but my faith was incomplete. I was bound by so many things–cultural expectations, pride, generational sin, idols…and I knew I was missing something, something important about the Gospel.
During Lecture phase, I learned from speakers who constantly made me question my worldview, my actions and my theology. I felt broken and remade almost every day. It is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I learned that, after twenty some years as a Christian, I hardly knew anything at all. Doctrines that I’d thought I understood (“God loves me.” / “I’m saved by grace through faith.”) finally hit home, and I found myself weeping from the awesomeness of it on a regular basis.
God freed me during DTS, and I am now 100% his, and I can’t wait to see what he does with me!”
