Our vision is to have God at the center of all we do, in the Creative DTS this means creating spirit filled art and running a house of prayer as a base. We want to be a training center that helps young people to grow and understand their identity as well as showing young people how art impacts culture. We want to minister to our community through several ministires. We are planning to open a youth cafe in the next three years & enjoy working along side other ministries in the region.
Youth With A Mission Ålesund is a small, vibrant center situated in beautiful Ålesund on the west coast of Norway. Our base started in 1994, as a base for a team doing extensive outreach and traveling around the Sunnmøre region.
The Creative DTS was launched in 1998 and has continued, hosting 15-40 students each year. In the fall of 2018 the Creative DTS celebrated it’s 20-year long journey!
In 2004 we initiated the “Lyspunktet Café” in town together with the Missions church.
The café is one of the best in town and is a great place to meet, enjoy an espresso drink or a good meal.
In 2018 the base moved to the city center of Ålesund. The new building enables YWAM Ålesund to grow in many new exciting ways!
In addition to the Creative DTS YWAM Ålesund runs two secondary schools:
Extravagant - School of Worship
ONE - School for artists
