Resonance DTS – Relating stories that resonate
A nine month Discipleship Training School focused on creating with God. We are creative because he
is. Our goal is to partner with Him in bringing beauty, order and abundance.
The school is divided into two phases, a 6 month long lecture phase and a 3 month outreach. In the
lecture phase we will alternate between classic DTS lecture weeks and Creative Project Weeks.
We will focus on two creative mediums:
– Film

Experienced Creatives will coach the students in their respective mediums. Students will be
challenged to produce authentic material that is not only relatable but also impactful. The different

Mark 16:16 NLT
  • The DTS was one of the best times of my life. When I attended the school I´d been a Christian for a long time, but only then did I really understand what it means to be God´s daughter. It freed me to be and to become that for which Jesus saved me. And even when you have nothing to do with missions, it´s worth taking half a year to let God work on your life in a special way. You´ll be surprised what comes out of that time.

  • They were the best 6 months of my life! And I am so grateful to God for this precious time! After receiving my highschool diploma I was very ignorant of my future and came to the DTS in Hurlach through “strange” circumstances. I got to know God all over again, like never before, and He changed my life. Sometimes it wasn’t easy, especially allowing God to touch old wounds, but to experience healing, renewal in the end is simply indescribable!

  • Even though the guidelines include an age limit at 30 years, I was allowed to do my DTS at age 35. And I felt neither out of place nor too old. Age plays no role in living with and later even for one another.
    I want to encourage the reader to go their way with God no matter how old they are. Today, 3 years after my DTS, I´m on staff in Youth with a Mission Amsterdam and work on a project that is building a new base in Curacao in the Caribbean. Dreams – dreamed together with God – can become real if you know who God is and have the courage to profess it.

  • Right after getting my university degree in theology I took part in a Discipleship Training School with YWAM England. Looking back I can say even today: It was exactly the right thing for me! And today I know even better than back then why a DTS can be recommended to every Christian.

    Rolf-Dieter Braun, YWAM Hurlach

  • The DTS was a great opportunity for me to look beyond the bounds of my church. But I gained a whole lot more. I got to experience how God called me through the DTS to touch me in a totally new way. I only realized here what “having a living relationship with Jesus” means. Through the example of the staff, their mentoring and through my fellow students from around the world I was richly blessed. God takes us how we are, but He doesn´t leave us like that. That motto describes my DTS experience. It was a time of learning and of (more) change towards becoming the person that God intended me to be. My wish for every Christian is to have such an intense time in a discipleship training school!
