This is a 10 day missions opportunity for participants to share with others what they have received in the Lecture Phase. Outreach will be to the Pacific Islands and you will receive:
When? 23 July - 18 August 2023
Missions - As followers of Christ we are all called to go to all people from every place. We have a call. Who will go? (Romans 10:14-15)
Community - We desire to live as a community, sharing our burdens and our joys, learning and growing together. We follow the example of the Acts 2 church in living wholeheartedly for Jesus and encouraging and building one another up. (Acts 2:42-47)
Prayer - Communication with Jesus is key to everything we do. We aim to develop a life of prayer for unreached people, our cities, our neighbours, and ourselves. (Ephesians 6:18, Philippians 4:6)
Biblical Truth - Gain a deeper understanding and love of the Word of God to establish biblical truth in our hearts and grow in our identity as followers of Christ. We want to be people who hear the word of God and respond. (James 2:17-18, Romans 2:13)
Worship -We believe Jesus is worthy. Worthy of every tribe and tongue to worship him, that starts with us. (Revelation 7:9-10, Psalm 100)
Relationship - Building (or rebuilding) the foundation of your own and taking that restorative relational heart to the Nations
Purpose - Developing the passion of a sense of vision for future ministry and family as a couple
Mission - To develop your call as a couple, understand opportunities and to respond
Service - Learn how to serve and champion those around you while developing your giftings and talents
Identity - We desire people to know who they truly are, and how deeply they are loved by God.
Adventure - We invite you to embark on an epic adventure of going deep with God through traveling and exploring nature.
Relationship - We value everyone's story. Through daily life and adventure-seeking, we aim to build relationships with the traveling communities in New Zealand and beyond.
Truth - We believe the word of God is true. Hearing from God is an essential part of living in relationship with Him and other people. We seek what God says through the Bible, and listening to His voice.
Evangelism - Through seeking God, discovering the truth of who God is, and building relationships, we desire to share the love of Christ with all nations and people.
Freedom - We learn to be set free by God from the things that slow us down, so that we can then make Him known to others in power and love.
Passion - We want to take our passion for climbing and dedicate it back to God. We do this by setting aside time in our lives to be discipled by Him.
Sacrificial Service - We desire to carry the idea of intentional community and sacrificial service into the rest of our lives. Our attitude can be one of willingness to forgo our climbing goals, champion those behind us, or overcome our “fear of heights” to reach out to climbers where they are!
Missional Climbing - We want people to leave DTS with an understanding that missions can be a lifestyle. Ministering to climbers doesn’t have to stop once you finish school. It’s something you can do whenever you go outside and harness up or climb in the gym.
DTS at YWAM Oxford helped me reactivate my faith in God. Before, I pushed him away because I was so focused on myself and my studies. DTS helped me change these bad habits and taught me what it means to be a true disciple of Jesus. I applied all that I learned by serving others in need and outwardly expressing the love God has given me.
From the moment I arrived on the YWAM Oxford base I felt so at home. The staff were so welcoming and genuine. The environment they have created here was such a blessing to my time in DTS.
