The Discipleship Bible School (DBS) is a chance to dig deep into the most exciting book on the planet! Amongst the pages of the Bible is a mix of sensational true stories, fascinating history, interesting characters, powerful teaching, and most incredibly, many words from the Maker of the Universe Himself. Prepare to go through all 66 books of God’s Word, gaining an overall perspective of God’s story. You will learn techniques for effective Bible study, and a series of guest speakers will help you unlock the Bible’s fascinating content.

God uses the Bible to reveal truth, to teach us and to prepare us for life as His representatives in the world. A good knowledge of God’s Word is so valuable for believers, no matter what their calling is, and it’s an incredible privilege to have the Bible to study. The DBS is a great time to saturate yourself in God’s powerful and life-changing Word.

Studying the Bible will be both exciting and beneficial! Apostle Paul said: “All scripture is inspired by God, and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realise what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are 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 3:16-17 NLT)

Each week you will be studying multiple books of the Bible with a new speaker every week. In the afternoons you will be put into reading groups, so you don’t have to go through the reading alone – you can truly capture the stories and teaching in community.

There will also be opportunities to go on a few fun day adventures. The excursions could possibly be going to Castle Hill, Christchurch, Akaroa, Hanmer Springs, Arthur’s Pass, and so many more possibilities; which you might recognize from movies like Narnia and Lord of the Rings.

School Leaders & Staff

Rebecca • 26

Hi, friends! My name is Rebecca and I'm from California, USA. I'm 26 and a lover of coffee and all things outdoors!

I did my DTS here at YWAM Oxford back in 2015 with the Backpacker's school. I chose to do a DTS because I hit a point in life where I felt purposeless and lost. I had no real identity, but I knew I loved Jesus. Even with that, I didn't know how to live it out. Coming to DTS, I didn't know what to expect, but God met me in ways I couldn't have even imagined. Through DTS I found freedom in my identity with God. He showed me that my heart for Him creates a life full of joy.

I chose to come back and staff the backpackers DTS because I wanted to help people come into the same place of freedom with God while exploring his beautiful creation. When I'm not staffing with DTS, I'll get to serve as base staff. I will be able to use my administrative gifts, helping run the office and behind the scenes work while the other DTS schools run, providing assistance to the other schools and guests. Serving in both ways gives me the opportunity to not only serve in a DTS but to help YWAM Oxford as a whole, coming full circle in support, love and community life. I'm super stoked for this season and can't wait to get to know each one of you in whatever role I serve in!

Luke • 21

Hey there! I'm Luke, I'm pumped to be here!

I live in Colorado Springs, Colorado when I'm not in New Zealand. I love doing anything outside whether that's in the mountains or doing some sort of sport, I also love music and making things with my hands.

For as long as I can remember I've been going to church but I never really wanted to pursue God until I went to Guatemala when I was 15. From there I went back two or times. For me I felt something was missing, there had to be more to Christianity. I decided to do a DTS in 2015 and from then on my life has completely shifted. I learned I could actually do relationship with God our Father. It affected me so much I wanted to come back and do more with YWAM.

I'm psyched for this season and what God is gonna do!
