Harvest DTS 2019

Harvest DTS is a Bible based six month training designed to encourage personal growth and to cultivate a living relationship with God. DTS is actually an adventure directed by the student and Jesus together. The school, teachers and staff create a practical environment where students are challenged to strengthen their personal relationships with Jesus, grow as His disciples, and identify their unique individual gifts and callings in God. DTS prepares the students to reach current and future generations and answer the call to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19).

Harvest DTS consists of two parts: a lecture phase in Ruurikkala, Finland and an outreach phase somewhere in the world. During the lecture phase, we have a different topic and teacher from Finland or abroad every week. The teaching is intense, challenging and Holy Spirit driven. Teachers share their lives with students and help them apply the teachings into their lives.

The lecture phase is followed by an outreach phase when we travel to the lands of the Bible as short term missionaries. We will have the opportunity to learn more about ourselves in the new situation as well as learn to trust God’s guidance in daily matters. We work by being Jesus’s hands, feet, and mouths by helping, serving and sharing God’s love.

Training takes place in English and in Finnish.
