During the DTS outreach phase, you will join with others to take the message and love of God to France and ( or) across the world. You will learn about the diversity of cultures and will participate in God’s purposes for the places you visit. The 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.
