Travel information
When flying into Schiphol (AMS) Amsterdam Airport, a direct train connection can take you from Schiphol in an hour to Dordrecht Central Station. For information on how to get from the train station to your accommodation, their website will provide you with the needed information.

Bonfire is ten minutes walking distance from Dordrecht Central Station. Many hotels are also walking distance from the Congress. Or you might want to try the ‘Dutch way’ and rent a bike, an option offered by some of the accommodations. 


In 2017  YWAM Gateway Europe, Worldpartners and Interserve Netherlands saw the need to promote the concept of Business as Mission in Europe and organised the first BAM Congress. They saw the potential of BAM for this continent, as they imagined Christian entrepreneurs in Europe regarding their companies as vehicles for Gods Mission. What if these business people started acting upon that understanding? God would be glorified so much more, also on the market place!
