the lecture phase

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 learn about the Business As Mission (BAM) movement and the strategic role it is playing in missions today. We will also explore the scriptures to understand God's design for business and its potential to bring transformation to the spiritual, social, and physical foundations of a community. We will spend a week learning from a globally recognized leader in the BAM movement. You will be involved in REAL business as we partner with a BAM initiative on the field to implement a project that will result in REAL jobs being created.
