You can do a DTS almost anywhere in the world and with almost any focus. You could be on any page right now, searching for your next step. Now you are here. Maybe Rostrevor is your next step. Maybe this school is the exact thing you needed to develop into the person God is calling you to be.
That is what we are passionate about with our DTS. If you leave this school the same as you came, we have failed you. We don’t want you to have just a ‘nice time’ or even just a ‘great adventure’. We want you to be challenged. We want you to grow. We want you to go deeper with the loving God than you ever thought possible.
If you want that for your life, continue reading below. We are starting a different type of DTS that’s designed to engage your mind, heart, and spirit. Come and be apart of a new thing God is doing.
The Lecture Phase
The Redemption DTS is a mobile DTS. For the Lecture phase, we will spend at least one month in Rostrevor Northern Ireland, Belfast Northern Ireland, and south of Beirut Lebanon. In Rostrevor, you will find it easy to connect in with God and community. We are situated between the mighty Mourne Mountains and the stunning Carlingford Lough, which is said to be where C.S. Lewis got his inspiration for Narnia.
Next, we will move to Belfast where a bustling diverse city will teach you how to love others in a practical way. Alongside lectures, encountering the city will expand your understanding of God and the world.
Finally, we will wrap up the final month of lectures in Lebanon. Half the day we will spend serving refugees or involved in a forgiveness program for a conflict-stricken land and the other half we will be going deeper into what it means to be a missionary in the 21st century with lectures.
The Outreach Phase
The outreach phase will be two months of full-time ministry where you will put what you’ve learned in the lecture phase to action. The entirety of the outreach phase will be in Lebanon continuing the work we began the month prior. We want to have consistency and longevity in our ministry in order to be more strategic. The first month will be lead by your staff where we will do first then teach in order to release you into leadership the following month. Our hope is by the second month you and your teammates will be ready and able to lead your own outreach. This is to develop you as a person and an effective missionary. The final week will be held in Northern Ireland to debrief and graduate you.
This DTS is not designed for comfort, it is designed for personal growth and development. It is designed so that you will become more like the person that God has called you to be. Please pray and see if God is challenging you to come and join us in February. If you join us I promise you won't regret it.
Are you ready to risk with God?
