Hui Mai DTS

7 February - 29 June 2022


When we ask God what to do in these unsettling times - He gives us the best ideas! Including....

We are excited to be collaborating with YWAM Matamata and YWAM Zion for the Combined DTS in February 2022, and we want to invite you to be a part of it!


WHEN: 7 February 2022 - 24 June 2022


WHERE: It will be hosted at YWAM Matamata's training centre (about a 45-minute drive from Tauranga), a peaceful place where you'll feel like family.


WHAT: We are excited to be joining with our wider YWAM whanau, bringing our unique flavours together for our shared mission: to empower Kiwi's like yourself, to deepen your relationship with God, find freedom, and be equipped for how God wants to use you wherever He calls you.

Whatever stage of life you are in--young single, mature, married, family with kids, and in-between--there is a space for you here. Haere Mai!

There will be two different focuses to choose from:

  • Sports & Fitness DTS
    • The Sports DTS is aimed at young people who want to deepen their relationship with God and who have a passion for sports and physical activity.  We desire to see young people to truly "Know God and Make Him Known" through discipleship and faith in action.  The 12-week lecture phase and 8-week outreach phase will have an emphasis on sports and physical activity. So, get ready to be challenged both spiritually and physically in one of the most sports-mad countries on earth. 
  • Family/Crossroads DTS 
    • Matamata's speciality is families and have an amazing facility that is perfect for the whole family to come and do DTS.  Plus this is a great opportunity for people of a certain maturity level who may feel like they have missed the train to join YOUTH with a Mission by doing a Crossroads DTS.  There is no such thing as an "old' YWAMer - we just happen to be of all ages.
