Urban Presence DTS

The Urban Presence DTS is a Discipleship Training School for those who are hungry to see God move in their life and the world around them. Located in the heart of the city of Amsterdam, the missions-focused training program wants to see Jesus impact a European society that’s considered ‘secularised’.

Are you longing to know God and make Him known? Do you want to learn about urban missions, the prayer movement, and houses of prayer? Are you ready for your life to be changed dramatically by the compelling love of a living God and his burning desire to see the urban areas in the nations reached? Come and join us on a journey into the heart of God. His heart is burning for you, the cities, and the nations.

The Urban Presence DTS is all about pressing into God’s presence and being sent out in his power! We are going to explore how God is bringing the missions movement and the prayer movement together in an urban context!


During the lecture phase at YWAM Amsterdam, multiple topics will be covered like the Nature and Character of God, Hearing God’s voice, The Fatherheart of God, Worship and Prayer, Intercession and Spiritual Warfare, Urban Missions, Healthy Relationships and much more. Each week will be taught by different, international speakers who all teach from a place of authority and wisdom.


There will be daily prayer times in our house of prayer and we will have weekly times of evangelism into the city of Amsterdam.You will have a lot of time to make new and lasting friendships, explore and discover God together in lectures, small groups, and one-on-ones.


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. Everything we do has to be birthed out of this place of simply loving God.

Urban Presence DTS are looking to partner with the local body of Christ both in the areas of different outreach opportunities as well as expressions of the prayer movement and houses of prayer. In regards to outreach locations - Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos and China are currently being considered.

We believe the outreach is not only going to change all of our lives personally, but by God’s power and his grace we will be impacting the nations with the gospel of Jesus!
