‘How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!‘ – Romans 10:14-15
According to the Joshua Project there are still 7,000 unreached people groups on the planet — that is over 2 billion people who have never heard the name of Jesus before! And we are committed to partnering with the Great Commission and doing something about it! If you have a fire to see the lost saved and go places where others have not been, to trek through mountains, and walk on the tracks that others have feared to tread. Then this is the track for you!
The focus of this track is outdoor adventure, fitness and trekking with a specific heart of reaching the unreached with the Good News and other resources that they are in need of. We see it as such a privilege to be a part of seeing that 7,000 number fall and see the Kingdom of God advance further into nations and groups that desperately need the same encounter with God that each of us has been blessed with. Because everyone has a right to hear and understand the Gospel, we believe no place is too hard to reach. Together we will be training weekly in order to be physically equipped for wherever God calls us (there may be a small addition fee for the training sessions). Although we will have weekly training it is important you come already having a level of physical strength and endurance that can be built upon. We ask that you’re able to run 3k without walking, and having the strength to hike with all your belongings strapped to your back. So excited for you to join the adventure!
How will it look during the DTS Lecture Phase?

However with the tracks it will additionally give you the opportunity to journey particularly closely with some like-minded people that have similar passions to you. The WAVES DTS consists of a 12 week lecture phase, where you’ll have incredible Spirit led, biblical teachers.
Topics include: the Character & Nature of God, Missions, the Father Heart of God, Identity & Purpose, Relationships, Bible Overview and many more.
Each track will be led by one of our awesome DTS staff that already has a particular passion for the track and to see this sphere impacted. In addition to the normal DTS schedule, every week you will have certain times that will be specifically focused on your track and will help grow your passions, giftings and knowledge of the many unique aspects that make up your track. This will include teaching from speakers already living out missions in the area that your track is focused on, activities, intercession and prayer times, and most importantly community outreach. This community outreach element will help DTS overall lead to a change in lifestyle and not just be an event in your life, and it means that outreach really begins from day one where each of you will be involved in reaching out into the local community in the area that your track is focused on.
