What is it?
Our Surf DTS is catered to anyone who is passionate about surfing and missions! A 6 month course designed to enable you to go deeper in your relationship with God and begin to explore how God wants to use you and your talents. The 12-14 weeks of lectures will be spent deepening your relationship with God in a dynamic environment of encouragement, support and biblical teaching. Throughout the lecture phase of the DTS you will be enjoying everything that the Gold Coast has to offer. Surfing, BBQ’s, swimming in the ocean and beach sports are just a few of the things that you will be doing to have fun and model love to people in a practical way. The Gold Coast has some of the greatest surfing locations in the world to take to the waves and enjoy the sun. You will then spend 8 weeks on outreach overseas putting into practice what you learned during the lecture phase.
