Reef to Outback DTS
10802NAT – Certificate III in Discipleship
The Reef to Outback DTS is a classic Australian experience where you will have the opportunity to really immerse yourself in Aussie culture.
In addition to the personal discipleship you will receive during DTS, you will also have the opportunity to experience all things Australian. Hug a koala, feed a kangaroo, BBQ on the beach – these are just a few things you will get to do, all while growing in your faith!
Outreach may include you and your team hitting the road to visit Aussie communities in both coastal and outback towns. You may work in high schools, visit Aboriginal communities, and support local community organisations and churches.
If Australia is on your heart – the Reef to Outback DTS is for you!
Note: Our January 2021 DTS will have a unique Reef to Outback focus. Learn more here.

“The Reef to Outback DTS is an amazing invitation to connect with the people at the heart of Australia’s culture. During the lecture phase in Townsville, we were able to study the history of the land, and get a glimpse of God’s heart for Australians. While on outreach, we travelled from community to community with doors and hearts being opened. DTS is a time of reflecting on your faith and living it out in confidence.”
