In the mini DTS you will receive input about different subjects like the Character of God, Missions and the Holy Spirit. These subjects are also part of the school where the mini DTS is derived from: the Discipleship Training School (DTS). The nice thing of the mini DTS is that is is held in the summer and lasts only 2 weeks. This means it can be a special way to spend your holiday!
Youth With A Mission (YWAM) stands for ‘knowing God and make Him known’. Therefore, our desire and goal is is that the course will be a time of personal growth in your relationship with God. But also that you will discover that you have a role in Gods mission for this world!
The mini DTS is open for everyone of 17 years and older. Both singles, couples and families are welcome. A separate kids program will be organized, and there will also be children’s workers available at certain moments, f.e. when there are lectures in the evening.
The mini DTS is divided in 2 weeks of lecture with different theme’s. In general the program consists of lectures in the mornings and a diverse program in the afternoon, including free time. Some days we also have lecture in the evening.
Warm meals will be provided in the afternoon (lunchtime). You will stay at our building ‘LID’ (translated: Light in the Darkness). Here you will either share a room with two other persons or stay in a small dormitory. Families and couples will have their own room. There is also a cosy livingroom, a big kitchen and green fields for sports.

Hi, I'm Jacolien, 32 years old, married to Franc. In 2013 we did our own DTS here at Heidebeek, and right after that we joined YWAM. Before that I worked as a teacher in a small village called Kamerik. Since 2014 I work with the Mercy & Justice DTS. For the summer of 2017 I will be involved in the mini DTS! I'm looking forward to what God will do in these weeks, because whoever seeks, will find!
Hello! My name is Leoni, I’m 33 years old and since 2011 I work at YWAM Heidebeek. I love to work with the DTS. It's great to work with young people and to see what God is doing! Also in the mini DTS God has a great change to influence people! I'm married with a wonderful man, Daniel, who also works at Heidebeek and we have a beautiful son, Rens. We love life living together.
Gods Kingdom will eventually breakthrough, completely and everywhere. Partnering in Gods mission for this world is what inspired me a lot in my DTS. It is my desire that this mission will be a guidance for myself and my family, out of His grace. I will be co-leading the Mini DTS 2017. Blessings and welcome to YWAM Heidebeek!
