Urban Presence DTS

The Urban Presence DTS is all about pressing into God’s Presence and being sent out in His power! We take the great commandment of loving God, ourselves and others as the fuel for the great commission to disciple nations. Together we explore how God is bringing the missions and prayer movement together in an urban context.


Allow us to introduce you to the concept of DTS. DTS stands for Discipleship Training School. It is a 5 to 6 months bible school of Youth with a Mission. Youth with a Mission is an international and interdenominational mission organization. We currently work in more than 1,100 locations in over 180 countries. The mission statement of YWAM is ‘To know God and to make Him known’.

You never get bored with God in action.

Urban Presence DTS Training and outreach

The DTS consists of two unique phases called the training phase and outreach phase.

During the training phase at YWAM Amsterdam you will receive classroom teaching, small groups, one-on-one talks with the staff, evangelism in the city, spending time in the House of Prayer, practical work on the mission base and outreach training. Each week is taught by different, international speakers. Multiple topics will be covered like the Nature and Character of God, Jesus and the Cross, the Holy Spirit, Spiritual Warfare, Identity, Missions and much more.

During the outreach phase the school will be seeking God to reveal strategy of making His name known in the nations. The main goal for the outreach phase is evangelism and longing to make God known from a place of intimacy with Him.

Urban Presence DTS is partnering with the local church, houses of prayer and other ministries. The outreach focus for Urban Presence DTS is Southeast Asia. Nations such as Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos and China are currently being considered.

This school is a place for people who are not afraid to encounter God, to be transformed from the inside out, and be equipped to change the world around them!
