What does DTS look like?


Lecture Phase (12 weeks)

Learn and grow in a missions-focused community. You’ll have the opportunity to deepen your relationship with God and be discipled in living out your faith.


Outreach (8-10 weeks)*

On outreach you'll have the opportunity to ‘make God known’. Outreach is an exhilarating time of risk and adventure, as your team serve with local believers: transforming lives and impacting communities with the love of Jesus Christ.

* optional nine month outreaches available

  • DTS has challenged me to trust God in ways I was not aware of in my comfortable environment back home. It has been a refining fire, shaving away fears and baggage, giving me more boldness and deepening my understanding of God’s unconditional love. This experience has enriched my love for Jesus while walking alongside new friends that I will have for a lifetime.
