Florida Marriage of the Arts DTS

After an monumental first Marriage of the Arts DTS here in Sarasota, FL we are excited to announce that, as YWAM Herrnhut, we will be running another! This is a very exciting moment for us and we couldn't be more overjoyed to invite you to be a part of it!

We must go beyond textbooks, go out into the bypaths and untrodden depths of this world. To travel, explore and tell the nations of the glories of this journey!

Come join us as we step deeper into the heart of God. We are on a journey of discovering what He has in store for the joining of world missions and the arts! If you would like more information please visit

A Fresh Look At DTS


Welcome to Sarasota, Florida! Things are starting to look a little different around here with the 2014 Sarasota Marriage of the Arts DTS! Our lecture hall for the day was in the center of downtown Sarasota! We have decided its time to bring the DTS back to where it was always meant to be... Out of our four walls, on the streets, and with the people!

As YWAM Herrnhut we are currently half way through the lecture phase of our very first Sarasota, Florida Discipleship Training School. There is no turning back now! We have world changers throughout this school learning how to take one step at a time as they seek after their dreams!

As we're entering the last six weeks of the school we would like to ask you to join us as we make a conscious effort to take our DTS classroom out to the people of Sarasota. So if you're in the area feel free to come look for us. If you're not in the area you can stay up to date with how God is using this school by regularly checking out this blog.

Blessing & Peace,

YWAM Herrnhut in Sarasota!

Its official... We have a House!


After a year long process, we have signed the papers and YWAM Herrnhut has been donated a house in Herrnhut! It is an incredible House with 6 different apartment units, and a spacious garden. Thank You to everyone who has prayed and believed with us to see YWAM Herrnhut acquire more properties.  What an amazing way to end the year! Now lets continue to believe and pray for more!

More than Half way!


We are more than half way to reaching our fundraising goal! In the last week, we have seen God providing more than 25,000 Euros! We are so thankful and blessed by so many wonderful supporters.  

We still have a little ways to go, and would love to invite you to partner financially with YWAM Herrnhut and invest in to the next generation of missionaries!

Partner with us!


We are standing on the edge of what could possibly be the greatest mission’ s movement of all time.  God is stirring up a new generation of missionaries to go and bring the gospel to all the corners oaf the earth. In Herrnhut, we are already experiencing the beginnings of his movement! Our Castle is host to hundreds of young people passionate to share the Gospel… but we have thousands more getting ready to flow through our doors over the coming years.

Our facilities our beyond its limits! We have been in the midst of a fundraising campaign so that we may continue to use this place as a center to send out missionaries and to do so with as low school fees as possible. If we are unable to raise the funds we have no other option but to raise our school fees we charge for our Training schools!

We still need to see 70,000 Euros raised so that we can carry out much needed renovations on our roof and septic system that is no longer functioning properly. Be a part of what God is doing here, partnering with us financially to raise these finances and invest in to the next generation of missions!

Update from the Florida Team!


Hello Friends!

It has been a while since you have last heard from us, we figured it was time to update you on the things that have been happening! Our team is quickly expanding! We have been joined by 3 new, lovely people and anticipate the arrival of many more as we get closer to the start of the DTS!

God has been doing so much in and through and for our team as we have been preparing for the upcoming Marriage of the Arts DTS ! We are so incredibly excited and expectant as we move forward in preparation.

The January MoTA DTS is coming together! We currently have 45 students accepted, from 12 different Nations, spanning 4 generations! How amazing is that?! Not only that, the Lord has begun to provide for things we needed for the school. We were contacted by a local church, Fellowship of Believers, who wanted to help us get this DTS up and running. They have been generous enough to not only offer their facilities to run the lectures out of, but they are also providing some staff housing on their property! For the past weeks, we have been helping the church to complete some renovations that they are doing for the buildings that will house our staff. We are incredibly grateful for this church and their generosity and encouragement!

We have also have had the privilege of working with The Hope House, a local prayer house/ministry center that just started up a few months ago. We currently run a two hour prayer and worship set for the Nations every first and third Tuesday of the month. It has been incredible to sow into their ministry and be a part of what God is doing in this region as a whole in the areas of prayer and worship.

Last week, a portion of the team had the opportunity to attend the YWAM South East Regional Conference in Alabama. It was an incredible time of connecting with other YWAM Base Directors in this region and we were honored to receive so much encouragement and favor from them as we continue to pioneer this upcoming DTS. (Pictures) During the week, we heard from Jim Stier on the Kingdom of Heaven. We were joined by multiple DTS' that are taking place at a few of the bases in the south east region. It was a great week of fellowship, building connections, and getting excited and inspired for building the Kingdom of Heaven.

We continue to prepare and seek the Lord during this time before the DTS begins- but we are full of nothing less than excitement and expectancy!

Disposable Project


Photograph by Bill Wood. 'Hampstead Heath' 2013

Last year Pick a Pocket (ministry at our base) was on outreach in London during the Olympics. They partnered with photographer Adelle Watts, and YWAM Leeds to create a project called "Disposable". Disposable focuses on people affected by homelessness and aims to empower them through photography with a voice to tell their story and share their perspectives on life. In order to allow their stories to be heard they are holding another exhibition this fall and creating a book of their current works.

As a team they have started this Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for these production costs. Please take a moment to check it out, watch the video, and be inspired by the photographs taken by their friends in London. Spread the word, and consider helping make this all possible.

Thank you!
