Media Discipleship Training School

Media DTS

We live in a generation that can communicate with anyone, anywhere, anytime. Hundreds of different stories, reports and opinions hit us daily. The world is telling us what to do, where to go, who to be… In all this noise, how can we hear the word of God? Where do we find truth, love and justice?

The Media DTS is for everyone who wants to communicate more effectively and use their passion to do so. This is an opportunity to join a community of like-minded people and discover how you can develop your media skills and talents to serve our Creator. It’s time to go deeper in your relationship with God and take His message of hope to the ends of the earth.

Cross-Cultural Outreach Experience

Get Practical

The purpose of the outreach is to apply what you’ve learnt during the lecture phase in a cross-cultural setting. As part of a team you will engage in sharing your faith through evangelism and hands on ministry. Outreach will be a great opportunity to experience firsthand God working through you and giving you a glimpse of what life in missions could look like.

Where you’ll go

Vibrant cultures, crazy traffic, and food that burns your tongue off. Sounds adventurous, right? In the midst of all this are countless people who are ready to hear the Good News of Jesus. Our outreach locations provide an opportunity to share God’s love with those who need it most.

What you’ll do

Depending on the location, opportunities will include: evangelism, prayer walking and intercession, music, sports, drama, church work, teaching English, mercy services and basic health care, youth/kids’ ministry, and more.
