YWAM Richmond’s Discipleship Bible School

A Journey in the Story of God


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

Answer burning questions about the Bible

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?

See the Big Picture

In Discipleship Bible School we want to help you to grow in your knowledge and understanding of God, His Word, and to answer the many questions that surround it. We will trace His redemptive plan for humanity and learn about His unchanging character and nature. In DBS we learn together through lectures and small group discussions. We invite speakers that teach on all 66 books of the Bible so you get the big picture. Our staff love God’s Word and Discipleship and they will help you grow in your understanding of the Bible so you can apply it to your life.

Read the whole Bible

By the time you finish DBS you will be able to say that you have read the whole Bible, cover to cover, learned to interpret its meaning, and how to apply it to your life, leading to lasting transformation!

Come and let’s get to know God together through His Written Word!

Upcoming Dates :

March 20th – June 21st, 2024

Pricing :

$3,500 for full 13-week course

In order to register for the first time to any missions training course or seminar at YWAM Virginia there is a non-refundable $40 registration fee. If for some reason you must attend a different semester after payment, the registration fee will transfer.

In addition to the registration fee, the full DBS tuition will be invoiced after your registration is complete.

The DBS equips students to accurately study and interpret God’s word and most importantly apply it to their lives.  We believe that knowledge without application is empty and leads to pride.  However, revelation, leading to obedience brings transformation and spiritual authority.  As a result, the DBS focuses focuses heavily on application of what you learn from the scripture.  All of this happens within the context of our missional YWAM discipleship community.
