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.

Be the difference and impact the world

The Discipleship Training School (DTS) seeks to bring you into a more intimate relationship with God. It also gives you an opportunity to discover your passions and your part in God’s purposes for the world. It is for those who long to follow Jesus in new ways with a different perspective.
