How to study and communicate God’s Word effectively
The Nature and Character of God
Intercession and spiritual warfare
The Holy Spirit
ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM
Each week as a campus we come together corporately to praise and worship God. Monday morning worship, at 8am, and Ohana Gathering at 6pm on Thursdays.
Prayer & Bible study
Prayer and studying the Bible are keys to a relationship with God. We are blessed to have a prayer room open 24/7 and a Bible department as a resources for growing and knowing God.
We desire to know God and to make Him known, and invite others to do the same. The campus library, prayer room, or one of the outdoor tables are some places to spend time alone with God.
Having an international community is a highlight of our campus. Weekend soccer matches, meals in our open air cafeteria, or drinks at The Banyan Tree cafe are ways to meet those around you.
Located in the heart of Kona, our campus has many opportunities to serve those in need around us. Whether serving the homeless or tutoring at a local school, we can share Jesus' love.
Fun & Adventure
The Big Island is beautiful, diverse, and makes weekends perfect for discovering a new beach, exploring Volcano National Park, or taking a tour through one of the many Kona coffee farms.
At the completion of the classroom phase, students have the opportunity to ‘make God known’ in the outreach phase. The Gospel comes alive as students step out in faith to preach the good news, baptize new believers and heal the sick (Mark 16:15-18). Outreach is an exhilarating time of risk and adventure, as teams serve with local believers: transforming lives and impacting society with the love of Jesus Christ.
OUR DTS STORIES
Glad I Chose Engage
Glad I Chose Engage ⋅ 02/11/17
Choosing a YWAM DTS can be pretty confusing, they can all sound similar and there are so many options. To help the process a little bit we asked our students why they are glad they chose Engage DTS. 1.

We have three amazing speakers joining us during week 7 of the DTS for Calling and Purpose Week. Their names are David Lee, Zeke Markshausen, and Brent Cole.

There are many aspects to Crossroads. We work hard, study hard, lean into God for our needs and many other life changing things. But one aspect that is often left out of the Christian life is celebration. Hawaii provides us with a beautiful backdrop to celebrate all the ways God changes us during the lecture phase of the school.

2017 Outreach to Syrian Refugees in Germany ⋅ 10/05/17
One of the most difficult aspects of life in a refugee camp for children is the sheer boredom. We learned to play a great game in Hawaii using a parachute. Kids love it and it brings the whole family out to watch. Many invite us back into their living quarters to talk and to share tea. Physical and emotional healings are taking place and many doors are being opened to…
Over a period of four weeks we did seven Vacation Bible Schools for over 600 children. Their enthusiasm was contagious.

How great is it to know that the leaders that are leading your team are not committed just for a few months, but have bought…
As The Years Increase, So Does The Fruit ⋅ 22/09/16
As we look back on our Discipleship Training Schools years ago, the teaching has been the same but God continues to do so much! As we sent our students out on outreach at the beginning of this year, there was so much anticipation for what God would do and wow, the results were amazing! Our team that went to Uganda and South Sudan was able to show the Jesus Film…
