Why do a DBS?
You’ve done your DTS and something has come alive in your spirit – the passion to hear the voice of God, to truly know and love Him with your whole being.  And to take that love to the nations!  God has already provided the next step on your journey – the Bible. There is no better way to know His character and His ways and to hear His voice than to dive into His word with His Holy Spirit as your teacher.  The DBS is an excellent follow-up to the growth, community, and discipleship you experienced in your DTS.  In this 12-week, UofN Secondary School you will be immersed in the story of Scripture in the context of a YWAM family that is pursuing Jesus together.  You will engage with the redemptive story of Scripture, reading the whole Bible chronologically in your small groups.  You will learn not only how to study the Bible, but how to be deeply transformed by it.  You will be better equipped to share God’s word with God’s world. You will find your place in His Story. The DBS is a foundational course for anyone who truly desires to take everything they learned in their DTS to the next level. If that’s you, we’d love for you to join us!




Why Minneapolis? 

Be a part of the very first DBS at YWAM Minneapolis!  After many years of offering our own Bible training, God has led us to join the exciting new movement of DBS around the world. We are bringing in some of the best leaders and teachers to launch our school. Here at YWAM Minneapolis we are a Spirit and Truth people, coming to the Bible first and foremost as worshippers. We are small, family-oriented base that recently made a strategic move to be closer to Minneapolis. The Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul are host to some of the largest populations of unreached people groups outside of their home countries. It is also a city of deep hurt, racial tension and often social unrest. It is a mission field that needs more laborers – especially those that are grounded in the word of God! Join us for a season, not only to grow your own relationship with God, but to see His love, His word, His truth impact our cities.
