Why do a DBS?

The DBS was created to serve this generation by offering accessible, dynamic and transformative Biblical training. We believe God is awakening our nation and is birthing the greatest missions movement ever seen leading to the greatest global harvest of souls in history! But how can we effectively bring the Gospel to the unreached without knowing God through His story? During the DBS we go through the Bible chronologically and see how God longs for every tribe, nation, and tongue to declare His glory, know His character, and walk in His ways.

At the end of the 3-month journey through the Bible, students will be given an opportunity to travel on an overseas outreach. Our heart is to go to the least reached nations of the world to partner with leaders who are passionate about reaching the unreached! We desire for students to not only gain a greater understanding of the Bible but for them to also be able to share God's story with those who have yet to hear it. It is through practical application that students will be able to walk out what they are learning. 

What can you expect?

During the course of the DBS at YWAM Boston you will:

  • Read the entire Bible
  • Observe the chronology of biblical events 
  • Better understand each book in its historical context
  • Understand the harmony between the books
  • Be able to recognize the different genres of literature
  • Acquire incredibly useful methods of Bible study
  • Learn to present an overview of the Bible
  • Be equipped to more confidently lead a small group Bible study

A typical daily schedule looks something like this:

8 - 9 AM: Worship, intercession, etc.

9:15 AM - 12:15 PM: Lecture with your special guest speaker for that week, teaching on the books of the Bible that you are currently reading and studying.

1 - 1:45 PM: Work Duties

2:30 - 5 PM: After lunch you meet in your small groups. This is the exciting part where you will take turns and read aloud in your own small group over the course of the 12 weeks Genesis to Revelation! There is time for discussions and answering questions throughout small group. Once a week a selected passage is studied inductively as well. The discovery of new truths leads to transformation in the life of the students!

7 – 9 PM: After dinner you work on your homework assignments that include study of historical background, working on your creative timeline that includes (a) biblical events, (b) revelation on God’s character and Nature as well as (c) God’s redemptive plan. All this homework contributes to your final project and that is when you need to teach for 30 minutes God’s Story from Genesis to Revelation at the end of your school. 

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. This rhythm of both learning and then interacting with people is something we look to carry throughout the school. 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.
