One of the first things we learn in the DTS is the YWAM motto upon which the mission is founded: “To know God and to make Him known.” Yet one cannot possibly claim to know God if he/she doesn't even know His Word.
In the DBS we make the Bible the student’s companion for life! The student will discover the unified story of the Bible, be discipled by the Bible and will fall in love with the Author of the Bible.
In this 12-week introduction to the Bible, the student will be given an overview of “God’s story” and will discover the purposes of God in it. The student 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, and be able to recognize the different genres of literature and major themes found in these 66 books. The student will learn the foundational truths of Christianity by going directly to the source.
“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and make us realize what is wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:!6-17)

Every day, students will meet with their small group and read the Bible out loud, tougher. Small groups focused time to not just read the Bible together but talk about life to hear what God is doing, to worship tougher, of course to do some deeper in-depth study using the IBS method and doing memory verses, and having great discussion (a lot of questions) - 3hrs everyday.
