The Compassion DTS includes a 12 week Lecture phase with a different topic each week. These topics include:
Throughout the Lecture Phase, we’ll spend time in class, listening to teaching, worshiping, praying, serving the community in daily tasks, and sharing in small groups and one-on-ones with staff. We will also spend time learning practical basic primary health care skills, how to bring safe drinking water and hygiene practices through appropriate technology and education, and how to minister effectively to children at risk.
Outreach is the second 12 week phase of your DTS and will take place in different countries in the world. Some places we have sent teams to in the past are different cities in France (Paris, Montpellier, Nantes, Lyon, Marseille), Kosovo, Togo, French Polynesia, Thailand, India, Nepal, Cambodia, Senegal and the Gambia. The Outreach is where you get to expand your horizons and put into practice all God has been teaching you during the lecture phase.
We will spend time working along side existing clinics, children ministries and rural communities to bring a practical demonstration of the compassion of Jesus with the skills learnt during the lecture phase. Other activities will include: evangelism, mercy ministries, teaching, children’s ministries, preaching, prophesying and reaching out to present Jesus in a variety of other creative, apostolic ways.
