There is no place on earth like YWAM Sunny Coast!
Where in the world can you do a DTS and live in a house just 5-7 mins walk from a pumping surf beach?
Yep, we mean you will live in a normal house, with comfortable living areas, balconies to relax on, a real bedroom (not massive dorm rooms) and heck even a POOL! We are committed to giving you a unique experience here on the coast, we feel it’s what sets us apart from anywhere else.
Better yet, our accommodation is just 5-7 mins walk from the beach (really…you can walk to the beach for a quiet time with God and watch the sun rise…or set). Sunny Coast has some of Queenslands most beautiful beaches. All this, and there are coffee shops! Yeah, it’s pretty sweet.
The Sunshine Coast is located about an hours drive north of Brisbane on the east coast of Australia. It stretches from Caloundra in the south to Noosa in the north with a population of almost 250,000. In the heart of the Sunshine Coast is Maroochydore, the commercial and business centre of the region.
While the YWAM Australia, Sunshine Coast DTS is located in Maroochydore, the base is planting ministry centres all along the coast in an effort to strategically minister to the entire region. View the area on Google Maps »
