    Being completely surrounded by the Swiss Alps, living life with people so passionate about loving others and the freestyle culture; I don't know a better setting than this to fall deeply in love with God.

    Reto and Judy are one of the finest couples I know. They lead with a true passion for Jesus, their staff and students. They have an amazing vision for impacting the shred culture. On the base they have created an atmosphere of love, freedom and honor. Which is empowering their staff and students to be powerful people. The base in Davos is awesome, they have their own little park in the back yard, and only a few minutes to walk to the closest gondola station. The riding on the different mountains around Davos is rad! Both park and free riding. As far as I am concerned this is a perfect place to serve Jesus, change the world and get some good riding in.

    In the 3years of knowing and working alongside Reto and Judy, I've had the pleasure to witness and to personally experience their love of Jesus and their love of people. I've also witnessed them as a family living out and being faithful to Gods great commission (Matthew 28:19). 
    A blessed family and a blessing to call them friends!

    My name is Travis Brummett, and I completed my DTS at YWAM Davos in 2008/2009. I can honestly say that these 6 months were some of the best times of my life. Reto and Judy treat every student and leader that come through their base as if they were their own children. They were so encouraging in guiding me along in my walk with the Lord. They have successfully created a DTS which allows students and leaders the room to grow in relationship with God and new friends. I still have relationships with many of my fellow YWAM-ers, as well as with Reto and Judy, and I plan on visiting them in Switzerland during my honeymoon this coming October. I have been so blessed to watch these two love each other and the Lord so much, and share that love with others. My life was changed during those short 6 months, and I have never been the same since.

    When you come to YWAM Davos, you don't just join a school, you join a family. That is exactly the way that Reto and Judy will make you feel the second you meet them. Working and learning beside the two of them has been one of the biggest blessings of my life and I give them some credit in forming who I have become today. Everything about YWAM Davos is special. From the area it is in, the people who go there and to the power that god brings to that place. I won't forget about my time spent there until my time here on this earth is over. And if you do a SDTS here too, I know you will feel the same way I do.

YWAM Davos

we care - we serve - we empower

YWAM Davos is a relationship-oriented community that cares for one another, for the people of our area and for those we connect with globally. We seek out opportunities to serve individuals, organizations and the church. We have established a culture where people are empowered to discover and develop their God given identity and potential to be a blessing to others.

About Us

YWAM Davos is a non-profit organization that is part of a global and interdenominational movement called Youth With A Mission (YWAM). In 2007, we were founded and developed by people who love the freestyle culture. The characteristics and sense of community that naturally flow from that have shaped the way we live and operate. We all cultivate a community culture of love and personal development as we challenge each other to higher standards in relationships, in work, and in God.

We care about people. Our desire is to see people fully alive in body, soul and spirit. We offer hospitality and housing where people can be safe, be free, and have fun. We invest into and pray for the wellbeing of our city, as well as the national and international places we send our teams.

As a community who cares about our city and the people in it, we seek out opportunities to build friendships and serve people around us in whatever ways we are capable of. We also look for ways to serve our city and local organizations through supporting and volunteering at different events. In the local churches of Davos it is our goal to serve, encourage, and partner with the Body of Christ. With these connections we aspire to be a meeting point for the community and the church.

Our desire is that all people we connect with are able to walk in freedom and joy. The aim to empower and encourage people to step into who they are designed to be permeates all that we do. We have a heart for seeing that happen in all parts of society, and especially in the freestyle culture. That is why we train people from all over world in our Discipleship Training Schools (DTS) and our Leadership Training Program (LTP). Through providing people with tools and hands- on experience, we help them to develop their character, explore their gifts and talents, understand their relationship with God, and pursue God’s call on their life.

Our Values

We are passionate about God’s presence

As individuals and as a family, we are passionate about God’s presence and committed to seek Him as the source of our lives. Through our relationship with God, we find our true identity and discover our potential and destiny.

We are passionate for God’s kingdom

We seek to understand the blueprint of God’s kingdom; a kingdom governed by Love. We desire to see His kingdom unfold in and around us, so that His goodness will be revealed. We believe that through this, transformation will happen.

We are committed to love well

LOVE is seeking the highest good for someone else. We are committed to love and honor God, others, and embrace who we are.

We are free people

Where the Spirit of God is, there is freedom; if Jesus sets us free we are free indeed. Freedom is not the right to do what I want. Freedom is the strength of the character to choose and to do what is right. It is superior to circumstances and people. We respect the freewill of man to choose a live with or without God.

We love to have Fun together

We love to have fun together and to be a joyful community. It is fun to have a fulfilled and satisfied life. This means to take care of our Body, Soul and Spirit, as well as being creative, have an impact in this world and a sense of protection, safety and comfort.
