For the first half of the school, each DTS participates in shared lectures with a range of topics from speakers from around the world.
The Worship DTS has weekly break-out sessions as well as a weeklong intensive set aside to focus on skills such as musicianship, songwriting, leading a team, vocal technique, media presentation, sound, copyright, and a variety of other topics. While hearing about these topics is foundational, actually doing them is vital. You will be directly involved with our campus worship times from the preparation of worship set lists, to scheduling, to sound, to the stage. Our community worship times are directly mixed with prayer and so the "Harp & Bowl" model will be taught and used (Rev. 5:8) The goal is to teach using a hands-on approach that is beneficial whether you continue in missions or go back to your local church.
Finally, each DTS comes together and prayerfully splits up into teams to be then sent to the nations. Students spend the remaining months 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. It’s a great opportunity to begin implementing and further exploring the gifts God has given you.
