Go and touch somebody's life!
Jesus did it first: He could have stayed in heaven with His Dad – in real comfort and security. But because of His love to us He left His home and put Himself into a foreign culture, far away from anything He knew – just to be with the people He loved so much. It was the only way.
Even today many people leave their families and homes for longer or shorter periods of time to bring God’s love to people in other regions of the world. There is nothing more exciting than being out there with God! Your DTS outreach will give you insights and experiences that will stay with you for life. You will meet people and hear life stories that you would never know of otherwise and you will have the opportunity to do things you never thought you could do.
During the teaching phase we will have a one to two week outreach within Germany. We will experience close team life in a new environment and get to know other ministries. This short outreach will also help us to prepare for the six to eight week missionary outreach at the end of the DTS.
The DTS outreach phase will give you the chance to apply the principles you learned during your lectures. You can put all of your new perspective into action by sharing God’s truth in different places all around the world. The goal is to share the love of God which you have experienced in your own life.
There is an array of locations for DTS outreach – a whole world, in fact! We’ll take you to the ends of the earth, where people depend on our help and the good news of Jesus Christ brings hope and transforms lives. In our global DTS outreaches we go to nations where there is great poverty and hopelessness and where 50% of the population is under 18 years old. It gives us particular pleasure to pass on all the help and aid we can to the young people in these nations.
During the outreach you will have the opportunity to apply what you have learnt in the previous months in a different culture. Students will work in teams with the following focusses: working with children and young people, ministry to families, developmental aid, ministry in churches and evangelism, mercy ministries and international understanding.
Together we will touch the world with God’s power and practical compassion.
By the time outreach ends, you will have seen and experienced a lot of new things. This is why we hold a debriefing time at the end of outreach back in Hainichen. It is a time to regroup, share stories of how God moved, and process what God did through you and others during the DTS. It’s also a time to explore your next steps after DTS.
