What is Expedition and Adventure DTS?

This DTS is an excursion, an expedition of striving beyond your limits for the sake of the Gospel.
We will sleep under the stars, build campfires, and share stories of what God has done!
In the Lecture Phase, you will learn about God’s character and nature as well as His heart for the lost.
We will partner with local churches and farmers to plant and harvest to see families and the generations reconciled to the love of God.
On outreach, you will continue the voyage and take up the challenge of bringing the gospel to the isolated people of the world.
You could be doing anything from hiking through the mountains of Mexico to sailing the Sea of Cortez or traveling into the nations.
You will be stretched beyond your breaking point and required to go further, do more, and pray harder than ever before.
