Throughout the year there are teams such as ‘Mission Adventures’ that come visit us to learn how to share their faith and what it is like to be a missionary. We bring in teams to train them so they can return to their towns and cities equipped with the skills for ministry. Below is a video from one of the teams that came to us.
Discipleship Training School
During another 6 months of the year we hold a ‘Discipleship Training School’. It is for college-aged youth. This world wide program seeks to bring you into a more intimate relationship with God. It also gives you an opportunity to discover your passions and your part in God’s purposes for the world. This school consists of a 4 month lecture phase and a 2 month outreach phase. In our schools we encourage the creative and talented ones to join us and explore how God can use all of us.
Staffing this school is one of the more intensive and engaging times of the year for us. Everyday during lecture phase is full of classes from our week's speaker, arts classes, work duties, prayer and worship, and outreach training times. Outreach is an all day activity wherever in the world we go. Recently our team went to El Salvador for outreach! Below is the video from our trip!
The story of God as you've never seen or heard, through a multi-faceted artistic production involving, theater, music, dance, and visual art. Encounter communicates Jesus in a fresh and compelling way. It tells God's story from Eden to the Resurrection, and ends with an intimate time of worship. It is a new altar call, a new door into God's presence, a chance for people who don't know Jesus yet to experience the reality of "God with us"! Encounter is a part of our DTS outreach. For one month we go on the road visiting usually a dozen different states with the show. We've seen so many lives changed through telling the gospel in this unique way.
When we were given the Ministry Center we knew there needed to be place that was dedicated to prayer. In the following years, through our most difficult time, the prayer room held us together as a staff and family. Today, we dedicate time to pause and pray and worship together as a ministry. Our heart as a prayer house is to seek the face of God and pray together to see growth and change in ourselves and this city.
