Why do a DBS?

‘To know God and to Make Him Known’. One of the best ways to know God more is to know His word and understand the story that He is writing here on earth. In DBS we want to become more familiar with the word of God, discover more about the unified story of the Bible and learn how His word transforms our lives and nations. And all of this we desire to do in the context of a community of disciples, where we sharpen and learn from each other.

During this school you will read through all the 66 books of the Bible, you will learn how to read and understand these books in the original context, what this means for us today and how we can teach others about the Bible.

Hebrews 4:12 ‘For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart’. 

DBS is a Bible School, but we don’t only want to read the Bible, we want the Bible to read us as well and be transformed into his image through our reading. So, why do DBS? To Know God and to Make Him know by becoming more like Him.

Why Trentino?

As YWAM Trentino we desire to be ‘Rooted in Community’, ‘Fed by the Word’ and ‘Fueled by the Spirit’. We desire to be a community where we sharpen each other and find a place of belonging, where we know how to be nourished by the word and live empowered by the Holy Spirit. Our invitation for you is to be a part of our community by doing this school and to learn together how we can be fed and nourished by The Word of God.

Our home is in a beautiful town in the north of Italy, close to the Garda Lake and at the bottom of the Italian Alps. We believe that by being amazed by creation we are drawn closer to our creator, and so, what better place to dive deeper into his word.

We are very excited to see what this school will add to our base in new depths of encountering God in His word and we would love for you to be a part of that!


School Leader


Hey, my name is Marcia.
I am German even though I may not look it – people come up with the most interesting ideas of where I could be from!
I am 31 years old and I have been working with YWAM since 2019. I started my DBS journey in 2020 at Berlin and I can honestly say that it has changed my life in many ways.
It was one of the most beautiful challenges I have endured so far. I remember reading something similar back when I first applied for the school from my school leader and I honestly didn’t believe it. It sounds like something people say, but I have now got to experience it myself and I want for you to have the same experience.
I personally am a huge fan of DBS, I like the overview you get of the entire Bible combined with discipleship. That way you can really grow not only in your knowledge but also in character. I can’t wait for more people to fall in love with the Bible. So come and join us in Trentino, Italy.
