Discipleship Training School

“I believe that in each generation God has called enough men and women to evangelize all the yet unreached tribes of the earth. It is not God who does not call. It is man who will not respond!”

Isobel Kuhn, Missionary to China and Thailand

Grow in your Christian walk. Reach the nations.

Perhaps you feel you are at a crossroads in your life and you have been working a job or career for a while now and feel it’s time for a change.  

Maybe you have experienced a life altering situation and want a fresh new start with a fresh new experience.

Some of you have known that you are called into missions for a long time and just “haven’t gotten around” to pursuing that call.

Maybe you feel like you are stumbling through life wondering what it is you should be doing and what would give you the fulfillment that you have been longing for.

Start this new season with a Crossroads Discipleship Training School (CDTS). This is a program designed for those ages 30 and up who have life experience and are seeking a new direction, spiritual refreshment, fresh inspiration or just a new outlook on life.

In this Crossroads Discipleship Training School you will:

  • Study the word of God and His character.  
  • Have space to develop your personal relationship with Christ.
  • Gain a new perspective and understanding for yourself and those around you.
  • See the world of missions and what a missionary’s life might look like.

A Place for You!


Crossroads is an expression of the whole family. Singles, widows, couples without children, families and single-parent families. Your children will have the opportunity to make friend of all ages including peers, other parents, aunts, uncles and even grandparents. Everyone gets to grow in this expression of training.

“Stand at the crossroads and look;
    ask for the ancient paths,
ask where the good way is, and walk in it,
    and you will find rest for your souls."

-Jeremiah 6:16

Foundation school is a heart transformation school for children aged 5-17 years old. Our topics are coordinated with the family DTS, but our school is open to children from families in other schools at YWAM Chico, including the Crossroads DTS. The heartbeat behind Foundation school is that “it starts in your heart.” Our desire is to walk alongside the kids as they build their own foundation in the love of Christ, helping them tune in to His voice, and share His love with those around them. Colossians 2:7

Families who have children under the age of four years must provide a nanny during the lecture phase of the program. The cost for the nanny is $1500 for the entire lecture phase.
