MONTHS OF CLASS
MONTHS OF practical application
in national & international outreach
DTS is designed to encourage you to develop in personal character, cultivate a living relationship with God, and identify your unique individual gifts and callings. The cross-cultural exposure and global awareness that you find in this school will prepare you to answer the current and future generations' call to
"go into all the world and make disciples of all nations" Matthew 28:19!
The purpose of an elective is to draw like-minded people together, those with similar passions & talents, in order to show them how to use those passions & talents for the Kingdom!
During the classroom phase you will have additional time in your week for your focus, or if you are in Classic you have additional free time to focus on your relationship with God. Normal class time will be spent together, learning from the same teachers, and interacting on a daily basis as one school.

Classroom phase is only the beginning of your adventure! The last two months of your DTS experience will be outreach!

You'll have so many opportunities to preach the Gospel, learn how to function in a team, experience the power of prayer, develop the ability to hear God, be dependent on the Holy Spirit's guidance, and see God's heart for His children! Outreach can be a variety of experiences! Here are some common experiences:
But our goals for outreach is to bring the Kingdom of God wherever we go! In all these experiences you really get to step out in sharing the gospel with those we meet and expressing who God is through how we live our lives!
