Justice & Medical DTS

Not for the faint-hearted


Do justice, love mercy, walk humbly.

Have you ever dreamed of encountering God and deepening your faith while helping others and doing something that counts with your life? Your adventure begins here at the Port YWAM Campus, located in the heart of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

Our Focus

This January DTS will primarily focus on Medical and Justice training. Our outreaches, although primarily evangelistic, are filled with other mercy ministries opportunities that include healthcare, community development, and education. As a ministry, we believe that every person deserves the right to medical care no matter their location.

We are also passionate about finding injustice in our society and bringing restoration to those areas. Specific class times every week will be dedicated to equipping you in these two areas.
