Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.”
Take five months of your life to seek hard after God.
Take five months of your life to seek hard after God. Through lectures, community life, practical ministries, and outreaches, learn what it means to be a disciple and how to live as one. Not only will you grow as a disciple, you will learn how to make disciples. The world is hungry for God’s truth and transformation – come learn how to feed them.
The July DTS keeps the mold of a classic DTS and, at the same time, pushes the boundaries to stay at the front of what God is doing in missions. This DTS consists of great lectures from international speakers and plenty of opportunities for application both locally in Lausanne and internationally during outreach. Students will focus on deepening their intimacy with God through worship and intercession, thus fueling the fire to obey God and bring the Gospel to the ends of the earth.

Summer in Switzerland
Summer is one of the best seasons in Switzerland. With warm weather and long sunny days, you begin to understand why it is considered one of the most beautiful places on earth. After a long day of classes, play some volleyball with friends, go down and jump into picturesque Lake Geneva, or take a bike ride through the forest next to the campus.
Assignments & Projects
So you want to go deeper in your faith and calling? We have prayerfully chosen supplemental reading, assignments, and projects to expand the understanding and application of what you are learning. Creatively record and process what God is speaking to you through weekly journals. Lessons will root deeper by sharing what you learn through inspiring book and outreach reports and public presentations.

But wait, there’s more!
After completing your lecture phase of the July DTS in Lausanne, you will travel to another nation for two months, continuing in your journey to know God and make Him known wherever you go.
Your staff and base leadership spend time seeking God’s direction for where the teams should go, but the locations for the July DTS 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.
After 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, community development projects, evangelism, visiting orphanages, preaching in churches, and seeking to bless the people in ways led by God.
