YWAM DBS Overview

Get Trained to Lead Others

During this 12 week bible school you will read the entire bible and focus on these main points:

  • God’s character and nature
  • God’s redemptive plan for humanity from Genesis to Revelation
  • God’s biblical principles that endure through all generations
  • God’s word as living and breathing, communicated in spirit and truth

Your Story Starts Here

Two thousand years ago, Jesus gave a command, a commission to His friends, to make disciples of all nations.

Today, we live through His word, but billions of people and thousands of languages still do not know Him, and 4% of our generation has a biblical worldview. If you feel the call and a growing desire to know God and serve people, take advantage of this dedicated time to immerse yourself in God’s narrative, explore your role in the story, and apply its wisdom to your life today. 

The focus of this school is that you would be discipled and transformed by the truth of God’s word, have a deeper understanding of the entire Bible, and become equipped to lead and disciple others into the Truth.

DBS Program Schedule and Costs

The outreach phase is 8 weeks long, followed by a 1-week debrief phase leading to graduation.

The purpose of YWAM Lancaster is to be a catalyst, an instigation, and a spark to ignite your way into living your life on mission while being radically in love with Jesus. Transformation happens when a community of passionate Jesus followers, led by the Holy Spirit, and grounded in truth, all walk in their identity and calling.

You won’t be going through this alone – you will have a one-on-one mentor doing life with you and others in your generation. You will be surrounded by zealous Christians, all worshiping, learning, reading the word, and working together for the Glory of God.
