AWAKENING DTS 2019
Welcome to the AWAKENING DTS 2019 in Berlin, Germany.
WHAT does it look like when we pray "Your Kingdom Come, Your Will be Done" in this day and age?!
Life and hope are breathed into broken lives. Restoration and Redemption to the lost. Healing and Recovery to the wounded and diseased. These are the works that Jesus came to do... and that He invites all of us to join Him in doing the same!
When: January 17 - June 22nd, 2019
Where: YWAM Berlin Wedding
“Go into all the world
and preach the gospel to all creation.
Come discover your part in God’s purpose for the world. What you uniquely carry, create and share with others around you. Gain skill, confidence and expand your capacity to correctly handle these "greater things" with excellence (John 14:12). And you'll also have a lot of fun and build friendships while learning to do so!
During the first 12 weeks (aka Lecture Phase), you’ll learn not only in a classroom setting, but also by living in community and hands-on practical experience. You will have opportunities to meet and connect with Refugees/Asylum seekers living in Berlin Germany. Also you'll get to distribute Bibles -- offering the opportunity for people to encounter God through His living Word ~~the Spirit within the living Word of God ~~. During the Practical Phase also 12 weeks (aka Outreach Phase), you’ll apply what you learned in the Lecture Phase through an adventurous, Spirit led and cross-cultural experience.
What makes this Awakening DTS unique:
Awakening Europe 2019: We as YWAMers in our DNA often are called to come alongside other ministries or platforms and serve them -- especially when we see the favour and anointing that are resting on different people or initiatives. The Awakening Europe movement has been gaining momentum over the past years in Nuremberg (2015), Stockholm (2016), Prague (2017) and Riga (2018). Many thousands have received prayer, been healed, and come to salvation in Christ (Praise God)!!! The cry of our hearts is that we will see new life and unity in the Body of Christ in Europe; spreading from here like a revival wildfire that brings reformation and transformation throughout the world.
In 2019, this DTS will serve the Awakening Europe planning and coordinating team by networking with churches and local ministries in the host location. We will help provide support in preparation for the stadium event held in mid June. This may involve training within churches on mini-DTS modules/curriculum, prayer, worship, evangelism or many other practical elements as well. The final week of outreach will be serving as volunteers for the Awakening Europe Flood (evangelism) and Stadium events.
For students who are unlikely to receive Schengen visas beyond 3 months (or if we have a high enough volume of students who also would have a heart for this), we will have some head to Asia, specific country TBD, and serve in diverse projects.

Meet the team behind the ADTS
Jeff and Tracy Van Veen enjoy hiking in the mountains, water (pretty much all forms except incessant rain :-)), people (...most of the time) and adventures with God. They are both Canadian, born to European immigrant families. They have been married for 25 years and have partnered with YWAM out of Kona Hawai'i and internationally since 2004.
They believe that the "DNA" of this decentralized missions movement encourages people to experience incredible personal growth, and releases them into far more opportunities than what is possible simply as individuals or small regionally-focused groups. They are excited to see what God will do through this Awakening DTS collaborative, and are strongly embracing this 2 Timothy 2:2 promise for an impartation of wisdom: “You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others.” Initially "thrown into the deep end of the pool of faith" when joining YWAM; they have been growing and learning about who God is and how to make Him known. Their desire is to help others learn to journey well along the Way.
