What Is A DTS?

Discipleship Training School is a five month course in a live/learn community where you spend time getting to know God and His purpose for your life. Lecture Phase, the first three months, consists of class time, local outreach, elective tracks, worship, and fellowship. The last two months, Outreach Phase, allows you to walk out what you have learned in Lecture Phase by going, serving, and reaching others with the love of God. Come discover your purpose and impact people, communities, and nations.

Lecture Know God

DTS consists of 3 months of classroom learning called Lecture Phase. During Lecture Phase, you learn about who God is and the purpose and calling He has placed on your life. This is done through class time with gifted speakers, worship, intercessory prayer, small groups, one on one discipleship, Bible reading, local outreaches, personal devotions, community responsibilities, fellowship, and elective tracks.

Community Responsibilities

Students will be assigned tasks around base as a way to get plugged in and do their part in our community; whether that be on grounds, in the kitchen, or with housekeeping.

Local Outreach

We are very involved in our local community. We spend time each week pouring into those around us through building projects, tutoring local youth, and evangelism.


You will meet with a staff member for one-on-one discipleship throughout Lecture Phase. In small groups, you have the opportunity to share and grow with your classmates and group leaders.


We offer tracks as a way to use your passions as a a form of ministry. Our current tracks are Classic, Children as Risk, Construction, Barista, Anti-Human Trafficking, and Photography & Storytelling.

Outreach Make God Known

2 Months of Overseas Missions

During outreach, you apply all you learned in lecture phase, practically, as you go into the nations and share the love of God. You will live immersed in a culture not your own, obeying the Lord’s commission to go, sharing the gospel, serving local ministries and making disciples. Currently our three focus areas include Central Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East.
