What is Engage and Impact DTS?

This DTS will challenge you to grow in your intimacy with God and build a solid foundation on the truth of the gospel. You'll be equipped and enabled to truly make a difference and bring transformation to those who need it most. Your yes can change the world!

Activate Your Relationship with God

Before we can set out to engage a lost and broken world, we first have to engage in our own relationship with God. From daily devotions to worship and prayer times, you'll have plenty of opportunities to discover more of who God is and what his plans are for your life.

Discover Your Passions

Whether you already know what your passions are, or you're still trying to figure them out, you'll be surrounded by others who can help you discover how God will use what he's placed inside you for his purposes!

Engage the Isolated

There are still remote tribes and islands that have never heard the name of Jesus nor have access to basic resources.

These people need someone willing to step out of their comfort zone and go where no one else has gone before. Someone like you.

Make an Impact

Get equipped and enabled to truly make a difference and bring transformation to those who need it most. God will work in and through you to help bring lasting change to everyone you encounter. Your yes can change the world!
