Ship Track


You can help empower a healthy future for the Pacific through hope and healing. 


Do you have a heart for reaching isolated people groups? Do you have skills or training in sailing or medically? Do you have a passion to bring hope to people through medical aid and sharing the love of Jesus? Have you been interested in medical missions or helping people and not knowing how to get involved? Then doing the ship track might be for you. 


The Medical Ship Track is designed to equip a generation around the mission of empowering a healthy future for the pacific. It is our firm belief that every human has a purpose, is valuable and deserves access to the necessities of life: basic healthcare, shelter, clean water and education. The reality is that many in our very “backyard” live without this. Whether you are an experienced health professional, a university student, an enthusiastic young person, or a skilled mariner, we invite you to come and be equipped to use and develop your skills to reach the isolated and marginalised with healthcare, and the message of hope.

Finally, you’ll take your heart to bring hope to the nations during the two-month Outreach Phase. The desire for the Encounter DTS 2022 is that it will include partnering with the M/V YWAM KOHA in the Pacific, borders dependant.  We are committed to reaching the lost, caring for the poor, and loving the one in front of us. Our short-term outreaches serve long-term workers and come alongside existing ministries. Altogether, it will be an unforgettable experience as you know God and make Him known. 


NOTE: The track elements are specific breakout sessions within the weekly schedule, but are not the main focus of the DTS
