The DTS is designed to encourage students in personal character development, cultivating their relationship with God and identifying their unique gifts and callings. Cross-cultural exposure and global awareness are special emphases throughout the course, preparing the students to evangelize and disciple current and future generations, answering the call to "Go into all the world and teach (make disciples of) all nations." (Matthew 28:19). Our DTS program is rooted in the U of N DTS curriculum which is based on the following six major categories: God's nature and character; God's intention for individuals, peoples and nations; seeing all of life from God's perspective; redemption, sin, and the Cross; God's family - the Church; God's world - His call and commission; the ministries of YWAM. Focused DTS's: Endurance DTS. "Classic" DTS with emphases: all of our regular DTS carry multiple "electives" allowing individual students to explore and learn specific skills in various areas of interest. Currently we offer 5 separate electives: Music, Dance, Sports, Coffee & English, Refugee Response, Strategic Missions. Credit will be given for this course with satisfactory completion of DSP 212.
