Upcoming Summer DTS

YWAM Palau in partnership with YWAM Ships are running a July, 2014 Discipleship Training School (DTS). We would love you to come join us as we reach those in the isolated places.


Palau is a beautiful island country located in the western Pacific Ocean. It is geographically part of the larger island group of Micronesia. The country’s population of around 21,000 is spread across 250 islands forming the western chain of the Caroline Islands.

We are excited to be able to create a training opportunity in this unique and beautiful region of the world!

Community Action – If you want Action, this DTS is for you! ACTS is a pioneering DTS. Students will travel by land and by sea to find God’s treasures in cultures, peoples, and in all of his creation in this archipelago of over 300 isles and beyond. 

Our Mission

In response to Jesus’ command to go into the world and make disciples  and in response to the need for biblical transformation of peoples and nations, YWAM and UofN PALAU, is called to train servant leaders in the spheres of society (religion, family, education, government, media,arts/entertainment and business/science).

 We are committed to teaching, works of evangelism, mercy ministries and discipling the arenas of society.  We want to see Ywam Palau become a hub where ministries are filled with people passionate for discipling the nations.  To instruct people with God’s heart to reach the lost, the needy, and influence the spheres of society both here in Palau and into the nations of the world.

Our Vision

To mobilize many men and women who value God’s love for all people, who have vision and passion for discipling the nation(s), who are equipped with essential skills, and who demonstrate His ways in service and relationships throughout society both here in Palau and into other nations.

Fall 2013 DTS Update

fishGreetings, guys! Merry Christmas from Palau. Thinking of everyone a little bit extra this week – I miss you guys terribly but God is so good to me here.

This past week has been amazing – we landed in Koror, spent two days there, then headed north to the state of Ngarchelong to help re-roof a church. We spent the week getting to know our fellow workers, three locals whose American-pronounceable names are Osmond, Jesse, and Other. In between working, they took us fishing. We spent several afternoons at the pier, where we often went to cool off during lunch or after work.

On Friday, Osmond and Jesse took us fishing offshore in their family’s boat. We spent the day on an inhabited rock island, eating the fish we caught, swimming in the ocean, and machete-ing open coconuts to eat and drink. They gave us a dream day of total island paradise. I’m not sure that I’ve ever been somewhere so beautiful.

On Saturday, we came back to Koror and are spending time with our host, Fuana. Her house is our base here in Palau, and though we’ll be moving around as needed, we’ll always touch base and find our way back to her.

Next week, and on out through January 8th, we’ll be going to the state of Kyangle. This is where the typhoon did the most damage in all of Palau – it essentially flattened the island. Supplies and fresh water are dropped in by air or boated from Koror everyday. We’ll be staying in community, I imagine in something like a gymnasium. The Red Cross has donated materials to fully rebuild 65 houses, so as much as we are physically/skillfully allowed to help, we will. There are boats back and forth everyday, so if anything happens, if we need anything, we are not to far off – but as far as communication home, I may be a bit more out of touch. But one thing my leader, Max, quoted to me that really hit home, is this: “Do you really think your presence is more powerful than your prayers?” I have been resting in this and am praying for people much. I’ve near entirely cured all homesickness in the light that God is holding everyone I love infinitely moreso than I ever could.

Love you guys, so very much! Aloha from a different set of islands, Merry Christmas, and I’ll talk to you guys again soon.
