DBS is an incredible time to know God in a life-transforming way. Throughout the DBS we focus on His character & nature, pull timeless truths from the scriptures, and learn how to apply them to our lives today. As we read and study, we allow God to speak into every aspect of our lives and are drawn deeper into our relationship with Him.
‘Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will’ Romans 12:2
During your DBS you will read the whole Bible chronologically in your small groups, understand and share an overview of God’s redemptive plan through the scriptures, and create/lead inductive Bible studies.
This is an opportunity to understand the Bible in greater depth by exploring the context in which it was written. Through lectures, reading groups & personal study times, you will receive something unique from other YWAM Bible schools, the big picture. This means that when you read the Bible in the future you will be able to understand why each book & story was included and what the author intended to communicate.
Ywam Durres is located on the western side of Albania in the coastal city of Durres. Durres was home to some of the first Christian families in Illyricum and the second-largest amphitheatre in the Balkans. Doing a DBS here means walking into Biblical history! Come place your feet in the land where Paul shared the gospel, journeyed, and ministered to churches across the ancient Roman Empire.
Albania spent 500 years under the Ottoman Empire, followed by 50 years under the Communist regime. Now, over 30 years later, Albania is a living testimony to the transformation God can bring to what was once a closed Muslim then Communist nation.
The YWAM Durres Campus is only a 10-minute walk from the beach where you can find plenty of coffee shops and restaurants, and go for a walk or a swim!
Study alongside us as we seek revival in the land and practice worshipping in spirit and truth!
