DTS is known for life changing teaching. It’s all about you knowing God. Knowing who He is. Knowing what His word says. Know the truth that sets free. Experiencing His presence. Hearing Him speak. Developing a relationship. Having courage to follow your faith. It’s about following Jesus in your daily life. Topics and teachers change a bit from year to year, but many of our teachers come back each year.
