Can You Do YWAM Married?

Can you do YWAM married?

The decision to join YWAM can be a significant moment in your life. And if you’re married you will most likely want to share that moment with your husband or wife. If you are unsure if you can do a YWAM school as a married couple, you’ve come to the right place. We have the answer for you!

You can be involved in YWAM as a married couple. Every YWAM school, including the DTS, is open to married couples. YWAM Value 15 specifically mentions how important marriage is to YWAM. 

Doing a YWAM school as I married couple can be one of the most transforming and positive seasons of your married life.

I can tell you from experience that doing a DTS with my wife was an incredibly rewarding season in our marriage as we were able to learn and grow together and see God work in and bless our marriage in more ways than we ever expected.

I wholeheartedly recommend it.

But don’t just take my word for it, check out Juliana and Douglas’s experience below and find out how they got on doing a YWAM DTS as a married couple.

Juliana and Douglas Lyra, Brazil

Doing a DTS was something we’ve dreamed about doing since the beginning of our relationship, so we’ve prayed and prepared for a long time.

We came to Marine Reach with high expectations about this time and everything that God would do in our lives. I was expecting a deeply individual experience, but I couldn’t imagine how much our relationship would be strengthened by those personal character transformations.

Since day one, He’s spoken to us about a new season as individuals, but especially as a family. He reminded us of old promises and brought a lot of new ones! It was amazing to see how many speakers talked about the married life, children and the challenges of a family, even though that wasn’t their subject for the week, and we were the only married couple among 57 students.

Also, we had the privilege of processing all this new knowledge and revelation together, having each other’s support, the company of someone who brings the same culture, and the understanding of a true friend.

On our wedding day, the minister told us that our family would be powerful for the kingdom and we’ve seen a little bit of this being fulfilled during this time. We could see how our lives can inspire and impact others, from the younger single students around us to the couples during outreach, showing respect and honor, the way God planned a family to be.

DTS was a life-changing journey and one of the most special things to me was sharing all of it with the most important person to me, my best friend, my family, my home. And it was, definitely, the most beautiful, wonderful, and unbelievable adventure of these 6 years of marriage.

Take the next step in your marriage

As you can see doing a DTS alongside your husband or wife can be a life-changing season.
