Why do a DBS?
His Story! His Presence! This school was birthed in the desire to see the journey that started in DTS continue in DBS. Our passion is to see Spirit and Truth operating together! Training will occur in the context of community that produces a lifestyle of Christianity. We long to steward the presence of God among our community as we dive deep into knowledge, revelation and understanding of God through His story in the pages of scripture! You will read through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation learning methods of Bible study that will open your eyes to the often missed deep treasures of scripture while relying on the Holy Spirit to lead you to your Father’s heart! Our model is Jesus! Jesus lived and operated in “Spirit and Truth”. His immense knowledge of and ability to articulate the truth of scripture was coupled with a life immersed in the power of the Spirit of God! May God dwell with us in all His fullness as we encounter His story!
DBS is designed to touch the new generation, by having them engage with Scripture in a dynamic way. Our mission is to see both Word and Spirit blend together to catalyze an inward flame of revival! You will learn techniques for effective Bible study, and a series of guest speakers will help unlock the Bible’s fascinating content. Students continue the discipleship process begun in the DTS by addressing a variety of topics illuminated in the Scriptures, by building godly character, and developing a lifelong hunger for the Word of God. This will not only be accomplished in the classroom, but also outside the classroom, through one-on-ones, small groups, and ministry in the community.
At the end of the 3 month journey through the Bible students will be given an opportunity to travel on an overseas outreach. So far we have taken a trip to Europe to minister to Middle Eastern refugees as well as India to minister at an orphanage. Our heart is to go to the least reached nations of the world to partner with leaders who are passionate about reaching the unreached!
Boston is a city of great historical and spiritual significance. Hundreds of years ago, people from other nations came to Boston with an appetite for adventure and desperation for religious freedom. Colonies were set up to be God-honoring societies. Harvard University was originally founded to train ministers and missionaries for the advancement of the Christian faith in the New World. Today, the same world-renowned university pulls in bright minds from around the globe to train them to be leaders in every area of society….except the church. When YWAM Boston’s founders landed here in 2006, they had a great sense of God’s purposes for this great city. They felt God’s aching heart to see Boston returned to its roots to be a beacon of Truth.
Come, join us!
Our campus is located just 4 miles from downtown Boston. It is in close proximity to the many colleges and universities in and around the city. In the DBS you will also engage in practical ministry outreaches, such as interviewing college & university students regarding the things you’re learning, and ministering to disadvantaged urban youth. This rhythm of both learning and then interacting with people is twofold: It will lead you to contemplate and reflect on what you’re being taught about God in the Bible and it will allow you to practical see how God’s word translates into issues of today and is relevant in a widely post-Christian society with differing worldviews. Our desire, while you’re immersed in the Word, is that you would encounter the living God as you read His story. We pray you will also experience God’s presence through our corporate times of worship and prayer sets. It all comes together to form the whole picture of who God is and what He has done for us. We can’t help but love Him and continue to learn more about God and we pray you would also.
