The 12 week lecture phase is devoted to knowing God more intimately. Each week will have teaching on integral aspects being a disciple of Jesus, including topics such as Hearing God’s Voice, The Character and Nature of God, and Worship and Intercession.
Students will also gain understanding of healthcare needs of people around the world, and how those needs can be filled with compassion and basic healthcare. Whether medically trained or new to the medical field, this DTS will give students exposure to medical missions and how to identify personal skills and calling.
During the 12 week outreach phase, students will use the tools they’ve learned throughout the lecture phase to reach and serve those who have never before heard the gospel. Healthcare is one of the most powerful and effective ways to reach the unreached as everyone on earth has the right to have access to basic health education and care.
Approximately 1.2 billion people in the world live in extreme poverty. Where there is poverty there is also ill-health as these people are typically exposed to variable weather conditions and unsanitary environments. Millions of deaths can be prevented each year by improving people’s access to essential health care.
