We are a University of the Nations campus


A Discipleship Training School (DTS) is the level-entry course in YWAM with a three-month life-changing training phase and a two-month practical outreach to others.

We believe that God is raising up a generation of men and women who have a burning passion for Jesus that compels them to share His love with all the world.  

It is the gateway course to join YWAM and continue with the University of the Nations.  Or it fits perfectly in a gap year between study and work.


There are also internships – they have training, but more practical participation as well.

The One Thing Internship is open to anyone, giving a foundation for the vision, values, and expression of both personal and corporate prayer and worship.

While the Leaders Internship is for those who have completed a DTS, it will equip you to disciple others and lead your own life with excellence. It is also a prerequisite to staffing in YWAM Furnace NZ

FURTHER TRAINING - Second-Level Schools

There are many schools, seminars and internships you can do after (and even some before) your DTS.  Second-level courses are University of the Nations accredited and will equip you to make a difference in the sphere God is calling you to.

Get further training after DTS to know God in a deeper way and receive training to make an impact in society’s spheres. Here at Furnace we offer:
