The Encounter DTS is calling a generation to encounter God and be launched into the nations! The prophet Isaiah encountered the Lord and from that place, cried out, “Here I am… Send me!” His experience with God stirred a desire to be sent out as a messenger.
This dynamic school is 20 weeks and has two phases: Training Phase and Outreach Phase.
Training phase: 12 weeks in length
The training phase will be a profound time of encountering God as you are equipped to be a missionary to the nations. Speakers from all over the world will come and bring focused training as we seek the Lord together in community.
During these 12 weeks you will be trained as a messenger to hear God’s voice, proclaim the gospel, activate your gifts and skills into unique kingdom influence, start discipleship movements, and engage in strategic missions.
Outreach phase: 8 Weeks in length
Immediately following the training phase, you will use the tools you were equipped with to impact a specific nation for God’s kingdom. DTS outreaches have seen thousands come to Christ in countries all over the globe. This Encounter DTS has outreach focused on indigenous people groups, we have a Native American focus within the USA and then we go one of many international locations within our target nation groups.
Come encounter God and make Him famous!
The Encounter DTS has both an outdoor track and a music and worship track to engage in.

Ventura is a beautiful place to begin a journey of discipleship. Equipping you to go out into the world ready to bring the influence of the Kingdom of God into every place your feet go.
There is plenty of time to catch some waves during your DTS, to feel the warm sun and ocean breeze on your face... listen to the ocean and enjoy the wonder and beauty of the area.
Up at the Cross... A historical landmark, overooking to the city of Ventura and the Channel Islands just offshore. This is a great place to pray! Our DTS base housing also has an amazing ocean view!
Sense the call of God to reach the nations ... Encounter the presence of God and the transforming work of HIs Spirit in your life as you move deeper into personal worship and intercessory prayer.
DTS prepares you to take the story of God to the indigenous peoples in the unreached regions of the world. This is the primary focus of our DTS outreach phase.
You will have opportunity to go out into the local community and engage with people, sometimes serving people in practical ways, sometimes doing street evangelism, and ultimately enjoying this place we call home.
