Living in His Kingdom, practically restoring life
A thief has only one thing in mind—he wants to steal, slaughter, and destroy. But I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect—life in its fullness until you overflow!
Life is a gift. God not only gave us the gift of a physical life here on earth, He also offers us the promise of an eternal life, a new life to be lived in His abundant goodness, free from guilt, fear, and shame. He has also given us the practical skills to restore, heal and strengthen individuals and communities ravaged by the thief of the world. The Compassion DTS seeks to bring a practical expression of His Kingdom to a broken world.
The Compassion DTS includes a 12-week Lecture Phase with a different topic each week.
These topics include:
Nature & Character of God
Hearing the Voice of God
Father Heart of God
Life in the Spirit & Spiritual Warfare
Fear of the Lord
Identity in Christ
Primary Health Care
Children at Risk
Throughout the Lecture Phase, we’ll spend time in class, listening to teaching, worshipping, 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 alongside 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.
