The Trailblazer DTS is for explorers, pioneers, and for those that crave adventure!
In additional to the transformational discipleship you will receive during the training phase of your DTS, you will also have two hours per week dedicated toward training you in basic community development principles and skills. This could include water and sanitation, health education, discipleship and relationship building, and community activation and participation.
For outreach, you will be jetting off to Papua New Guinea and communities in Australia to put your knowledge and skills into practice.
If the thought of learning a new culture, cooking your meal over a fire, bathing in a river, and sleeping on the ground under a mosquito net makes your heart come alive, the Trailblazer DTS is waiting for you to join them on their next adventure!

“The Trailblazer elective really opened up my perspective on how God can move and change lives in places I never knew existed. It was the adventure of a lifetime that convinced me to chase a lifetime of adventure!”
“I loved to pioneer and not knowing what was going to happen and trust God in everything. His plans were so much bigger than ours!”
