A Journey in the Story of God

Being a Christian means to be identified as a follower of Christ. How better to know Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit than to commit to studying the Word?

Have you ever wondered why we still have the Old Testament? Does the Law mean anything to us today? Why does the modern world need the Bible? Have you ever felt downright bored reading the Bible but feel like you should get something more from it? And why does God seem angry in the Old Testament but loving in the New Testament?

In DBS we want to help you grow in both your knowledge and understanding of God and His Word, to answer these questions and more.  In DBS we learn together every day through lectures, small groups & discussions. We bring in speakers every week that teach on all 66 books of the Bible. And our staff, who are passionate about God’s Word & Discipleship, help you grow in understand of the Bible. By the time you finish DBS you will be able to say that you have read the whole Bible, cover to cover. But not just read it, studied it and grew in it. Come and let’s get to know God together through His Written Word!

One of the first bases on the east coast, YWAM Richmond was originally pioneered in 1982. For nearly 30 years YWAM Richmond has been committed to discipleship, community development and training. YWAM Richmond is dedicated to knowing God deeply and making Him known throughout the world.

We boldly train followers of Jesus to listen to God’s voice so that they become world changers. As a community we live, worship, pray, share the Gospel, serve and study together as we launch new expressions of ministry. We are a community that deeply values the Word of God, discipleship, and development of leaders. Our staff serve in various ways all across the city. We also believe the Lord is calling YWAM Richmond to be an apostolic sending location into the nations. We desire to see and develop Christian communities all over the world. Through relational investment with people in their day to day lives, we believe that transformation will come to the nations through the power of the Gospel! Join the movement as we give ourselves to the Knowing God and Making Him Known throughout the world!
