What is a DTS?
A Discipleship Training School (DTS) is a five or six month course designed for you to discover more about your identity, purpose, and the passions that God has given you. You also have the opportunity to apply what you learn onto the mission field, as well as in your day-to-day life. Just as Jesus invited the disciples to leave their everyday life to follow him, we are asking you to answer the call and choose to do the same! (Matthew 4:18-22)
A DTS is truly about developing your faith and going further and deeper than you have ever gone before. The ultimate goal of a DTS is for you to know God more personally, and obey Him from a place of love. It is an exploration into the heart of God, and a journey of discovery where God’s ways become your own. The emphasis is not so much on a mind filled with facts, but a heart filled with faith. Knowledge is gained, but emphasis is placed on applying the principles learned. A DTS is also a great time for people at a crossroads in life to stop and find refreshment, and be revitalized for the journey ahead with God.
