Hear from world-class speakers on topics like:

Character & Nature of God

Who is God, really? What if He is infinitely bigger than we have made Him to be? These are beautifully vast questions that we can explore for the rest of our lives. Come alongside other classmates, staff, and speakers who are passionate about discovering and loving God deeply and truly.

Dig into scripture, read the wisdom of sages, worship, and engage. Bring your heart, your curiosity, your confusion, and your hunger and gain tools to make a lifestyle of getting to know and live with our indescribably wonderful God.

Hearing God’s Voice

The Bible displays how God speaks through spoken (rhema) word and the written (logos) word. God is speaking, what is hindering you from listening?

We desire for you to hear God and be able to follow all that He speaks through the Word, prayer and more. As you learn to know the voice of your Shepherd, you will be able to grow in closer intimacy with Him.

Biblical Worldview

How as Christians are we to veiw the world around us? What approch does the Bible give us for dealing with injustice? How should we apply Biblical principles to our lives in modern times?

All of these questions relate back to our worldview, or the way we relate and live in the world. As we seek to reflect God's image to the world these are important questions that will help you build a strong foundation for your life.

Outreach Phase

But wait, there’s more!

Outreach Phase

But wait, there's more!

After completing your lecture phase of the WMDTS in Lausanne, you will travel to another nation for two months to continue the journey of knowing God and making Him known wherever you go. A main focus of outreach will be evangelism with an emphasis on serving in the area of worship by leading prayer room sessions, leading worship at church and do live music performances. 

Your staff and base leadership spend time seeking God’s direction for where the teams should go. The locations for the WMDTS are not finalized until after the students have arrived in Switzerland. We want to get to know students and see which outreach locations are a good match for their talents, personalities, and passions.

Once outreach locations are announced, students have time to pray about the options and seek wise counsel from parents before submitting their choice to the staff. The whole process is covered in prayer as we seek God’s will in this area.


In the past few years, YWAM Lausanne has sent teams to countries in South America, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Europe. These teams have engaged with the nations through activities including prayer, worship, community development projects, evangelism, visiting orphanages, preaching in churches, and seeking to bless the people in ways led by God.
