What is the DTS program like?
Most often, the DTS training comes in two parts: lecture phase and outreach phase.
DTS LECTURE PHASE
The lecture phase is usually three months long and takes place in a classroom setting. You'll learn about different topics such as Bible study, theology, cross-cultural studies, and evangelism.
Specific DTS lecture phase teaching topics include:
How to hear God's voice
Calling & Identity
Nature & Character of God
Prayer, Worship, & Intercession
Father Heart of God
OTHER PARTS OF THE DTS PROGRAM
There is so much more to a DTS than sitting in a classroom, some of the best times are when class is finished! Growing as a Disciple to Jesus happens is when we are drinking coffee together, eating meals, hanging out in the evening. Some other great aspects of the DTS include:
Prayer & Worship times
Hanging out on the weekend
Then, the outreach phase is typically three months long and takes you to a new culture where you'll put what you've learned into practice by serving others. You'll have the opportunity to share the love of Jesus with people from all over the world!
Where do we typically go on Outreach? A hand full of places we have been to in the past years include:
