Unlike a regular DTS, the ASIA2AFRICA Backpackers DTS is a mobile DTS that will be constantly on the move, consisting both a spiritual and physical journey to discover what God has in store for during that season and the ones to come.
A Discipleship Training School is more of an experience than it is a school, where you can develop truth, faith, and character. You will be able to encounter God and His nature and character through His Word and through the culturally-diverse students and staff.
As Dietrich Bonhoeffer puts it, only the believers obey and only the obedient believe, God is calling every believer into faith-led obedience to reach out for His dreams for every individual and for the nations, living the full potential of the Great Commission and pursing the souls of all mankind for Jesus. The heart of this school is to disciple each of you into a deeper relationship with God, finding out who you are in Him, and who He has called you to be.
Every nation and culture has a contribution at the table of God’s kingdom and a part to play in its extension. The ASIA2AFRICA theme of this DTS, as its name suggests, is to develop God’s heart for cross-continental and cross-cultural missions, especially between Asia and Africa.
The Vision of the School
For people to discover God’s heart for the Nations especially among the unreached nations as each individual discover their own Identity, Dignity and Destiny to find their place in God’s global purpose
