Youth With A Mission


Foundations for Intercultural Studies – FIS

-Connect cultures . Love different-

85%. This figure may not speak to you, yet it is the percentage of Muslims who have never heard of Jesus’ love. It’s huge, isn’t it? Like us, are you one of those who have an open heart for our Muslim friends? Do you want to get to know them better and meet them? Do not wait any longer and register for the school of Foundations for Intercultural Studies (FIS) here at JEM Provence!


1st part, April-June 2020

The FIS aims to help you start or continue in pioneering missions in the medium or longer term. During the first 3 months, this training will allow you to integrate and put into practice different topics such as:

– To know and understand Islam and Muslims

– Intercultural exchange and adaptation, reconciliation between cultures

– Thrive as an expatriate

-Creating bridges between Christians and Muslims

– Principles to start a business

– Communication and relationships with supporters and churches

– Biblical Foundations in Mission

-Learning a new language

– Project planning and teamwork

– Principles for the multiplication of disciples

-Learning the oral transmission of stories

– Etc.

You will learn through different experienced teachers how to thrive on the field, and you will have the opportunity to practice what you learn directly in the region where we are. France is a country with a large number of immigrants, more specifically from North Africa, but also from different nations around the globe.


2nd part, July-September 2020

 The lecture phase of 3 months will be followed by an internship in a North African country of at least 3 months. During this period, you will have the opportunity to taste this beautiful culture and put into practice what you have received, while enjoying the necessary support for your development and discovery. You will dive into the life and habits of the Maghreb and you will be introduced to their practices and their language!


Historically, YWAM Provence has been and remains a springboard for equipping and sending workers across borders. We work with experienced people, who know the field well, having worked in Africa and Asia among different people groups such as the Mongols, Pygmies, Fulani, Tuaregs, Malians, etc. This school is oriented towards North Africa but can also equip you for an implication in the Muslim world at large!


Who is it for ? 

You did a DTS (Discipleship Training School) and you want to continue serving in the medium or longer term especially in the Muslim world? This school is surely for you!

Multigenerational DTS

The next Discipleship Training School will run from September 29, 2019 until March 07, 2020



What is a multigenerational DTS ?

This is a school that caters to singles and married couples from all nations and generations ( 18 +) !

We are excited to welcome you!
We will be a bilingual school working together in French and English.

A DTS (Disciple training school) is a time set apart for God to let Him captivate your heart and to give you a new passion for Him and His kingdom. It is an intensive residential training course which begins with a 12 week lecture phase followed by a 9 week outreach.

DTS emphasizes cross-cultural exposure and global awareness preparing students to answer the call to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations.”

It also gives you an opportunity to discover your passions and your part in God’s purposes for the world. It is for those who long to follow Jesus in new ways with a different perspective. “… I no longer call you servants…Instead, I have called you friends,…   You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit…”

I no longer call you servants,… Instead, I have called you friends, …You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit… John 15: 15-16

Lecture phase

The first part of the school, called the lecture phase, lasts 12 weeks and is based in the picturesque town of Saint-Paul- Trois-Châteaux, France.

Each week students will have the opportunity to attend classes touching on a specific spiritual subject. The courses are taught by different speakers from different cultural backgrounds who have both knowledge and experience in their specific field of teaching.

Weekly topics include: Intimacy with God, The Holy Spirit, The Bible, Hearing the Voice of God, the Father’s heart, Mission, Evangelization, Gods Calling, etc.

Lecture phase also includes:

-Intercession times and worship times throughout the week.
-Workshops to prepare for evangelism (preaching, song, mime, dance, puppets, etc.).
-Times of personal study: reading, journaling, research.
-Practical tasks: cleaning/housework, taking part in some practical activities at the YWAM base.
-Personal times (one-on- one) with a staff member or with the speaker of the week.
-Small group to reflect on what God is doing and to learn to minister to each other.
-Personal times with God

The number of students in a DTS varies from 8 to 25 students. As a general rule most of the staff, the speakers and the students live in community sharing meals together and the work duties.

You can find the regular DTS curriculum at

Outreach phase

During the DTS outreach phase, you will join with others to take the message and love of God to France and ( or) across the world. You will learn about the diversity of cultures and will participate in God’s purposes for the places you visit. The outreach phase will give you the chance to apply the principles you have learned during your lectures.
You can put all of your new perspective into action by sharing God’s truth in different places.

Your Outreach Location


In the past in YWAM Provence the outreach locations have been Burkina faso, Mali, Mongolia, France and other countries.





God is calling this DTS to be a blessing for the nations
in a very specific and unique way!

What they said !

  • The DTS has changed many things in my life. First of all, I learnt how to know God and now I have a personal relationship with Him. During this time God has freed me from many wounds that I had received in the past. During this school I really felt the love of God, His joy, I knew that He was with me but most of all I felt accepted. During the training there were many challenges and difficulties (but God was there!) but it was through these tests  that I was able to grow both personally and spiritually. Throughout the school I truly felt the love and the faithfulness of God !

  • Overall DTS changed, challenged and encouraged me greatly in my walk with God. Hearing His voice became normal and regular instead of rare and surprising. God has given me a boldness and fire to share the gospel with people and I am so thankful for His leading and faithfulness, glory be to God!

  • I came to YWAM without any experience of evangelism or of Muslim culture. So when we went on outreach to Senegal I put everything into God's hands and asked Him to work through me. And God did wonderful things! It was amazing to see people so open to hear about Jesus and having a hunger for God's truth. God worked beyond all my expectations and gave me a pasion to lead the lost to Him.

  • During my DTS God fully met my expectations. For me it was a great school of trusting God. Developing my trust in God has had an impact on many areas of my life. Of course, it has incredibly changed my relationship with him, but it has also influenced the way that I perceive myself and my relationships with other people. I truly believe that whatever God calls me to, with His help, I will have whatever it takes to accomplish it.
