Classic DTS

What is a DTS?

The Discipleship Training School is a five month, life-changing, program designed to help you “Know God and make Him known”. It is a time for you to seek God’s face, hear His voice and discover who God made you be. Putting aside all the distractions of life you can focus on Him and follow His command to make disciples of every people group on earth (Matt 28:19). It’s a time to step out of your comfort zone and give God your whole heart and your whole life. DTS will open your eyes to God’s heart for a hurting world and see Him use you to change it.

Classic DTS Purpose Statement

The purpose of the DTS, aka classic DTS, is for each student to grow as a disciple of Jesus, to know God and make him known.

Lecture Phase

The first 12 weeks you will join together with others from all over the world who are passionately seeking God’s heart. Our guest speakers come from dynamic ministries all over the world to share on topics such as: Hearing God’s voice, The Father Heart of God, Cross Cultural Mission, Spiritual Warfare, and Biblical Worldview. We will reach out to the lost in the glizt of the famous strip and around the dark corners of the city where most tourists don’t visit.

Outreach Phase

The next 8 weeks of the Classic DTS you will travel overseas and put into practice everything you have learned throughout lecture phase. With some of our long term ministry partners we will do evangelism, children’s ministry, practical helps, service projects and occasionally try to start new churches. You will have opportunity to live your faith, as you answer the call to make disciples of all the peoples of the earth. Previous teams have gone to India, Myanmar, Israel, Nepal, Thailand, Central America and Africa.
