What will the DTS field assignment/outreach be like?
The DTS Field Assignment (or Outreach) is a highlight for many DTS students. Once the lecture phase of DTS has wrapped up, you’ll get the opportunity to take the truth you’ve learned and put it into practice in a ministry setting in an overseas destination! Outreach phase is between 2-3 months long. The location of the field assignment will be determined shortly after the beginning of the DTS and creatively revealed in class. While in Muizenberg, you will have the opportunity to learn about the country and culture where your field assignment will take place. The DTS staff will guide you in understanding the values, strengths and needs of the nation where you will be serving. A primary focus of the field assignment is sharing your faith with those who don’t know Jesus through conversations, the performing arts, acts of mercy & service, and friendships with people who don’t know Him. In addition, there will be opportunities to meet practical needs and partner with local believers.
