Our Transformation Bible School (TBS) is a 6 week seminar open to YWAMers and non YWAMers alike, hosted here at our base in Redding, California.
This school is open to anyone wanting to experience the transformational power of the Living Word – no DTS required. Come experience the Living Word as you read the scriptures and run after God in a missions community!
Transformation Bible School Redding
The Bible teaches us that having relationship with God means we can hear His voice. The primary way we learn to hear God’s voice is through reading His Word, the Bible! In our Transformation Bible School you will learn to hear God’s voice by not just reading about Him, but actually listening to Him as you read. You will learn practical and creative ways to study God’s life-giving words, and be with Holy Spirit as He transforms you from the inside out.
Our desire is that students would develop a passion for the Living Word, know its power, and experience the freedom it brings. Students will have opportunities throughout the school to put what they see in the Word into practice, and discover first hand its’ power to transform lives. Come join us as we spend time with Jesus, the Living Word, and experience the transformation He brings in our lives!
Tour of the Holy Land
At the end of the program, there is a choice for an optional tour of the Holy Land! It will be an 11-day tour to see the Bible come to life. This opportunity is open to any friends, family, or alumni regardless of whether they attended TBS or not. Join us for this life-changing trip! Sign up for more information here.

We ask that mothers look after their children from 3-5pm daily for their community responsibility time while the father serves on base.
We will provide pickup and transportation when you fly into Redding Municipal Airport. If you are traveling from outside the US and prefer to fly into San Francisco, please contact us about other potential transportation methods. Our school registrar will inform you of times to book your tickets.
In YWAM we have a strong culture of depending upon the Lord for provision. We are convinced that if God gives the call, He will provide the means for us to move. We encourage you to pray about how to partner with others in raising support, knowing that it is ultimately up to the Lord to provide the way for the mission He is calling you to!
