Each DTS comes together for the official lecture times to hear a range of topics from speakers from all around the world. During other times we will be exploring the many adventurous outdoor opportunities that Colorado has to offer! We will be engaging with God while participating in physical activities such as rock climbing, mountain climbing, mountain biking, hiking, camping and many other awesome outdoor endeavors. We will be learning more about what it looks like to abide with God even in our passions. God gave us those passions so let’s learn how to invite Him into the adventures we love going on. Who says you can’t take the gospel to the trails? Who’s going to reach the people in the difficult mountain ranges of the world? Who will learn how to help a hurt person in the wilderness? Who will dare explore with the one who created it all? Let’s do it! Be ready for intense physical exercise, learning new ways to have fun outside, finding God in nature and exploring this beautiful earth He created.
The following few months are spent overseas reflecting Jesus’ call to ‘GO’. In teams across the 10/40 window students are given the opportunity to explore and apply all they learned in the lecture phase. The idea behind having an outreach specifically geared towards outdoor adventure is to reach the people that can't be reached easily. If you want to spend two to three months trekking to the least reached places of the world, then this is the DTS for you!
It’s not required but definitely recommended! Usually things can be found to borrow but your life will be a lot easier if you bring some of the stuff you have like sleeping bags, hiking shoes, a water filter, etc. A list of suggested gear to bring will be sent to you before you come.
Due to the many additional activities we have to charge more. This will go towards equipment rental, additional supplies, etc.
