“Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak tenderly to her.”
Split Paragraph with Title
Embrace the wilderness.
Over millennia, God’s people have been no strangers to the deep relationship that is cultivated through a hands-on connection to the land.
Embark on an adventure of the heart by taking a 5 month discipleship course centered on the creativity of God showcased all around us in nature.
Through lectures and outdoor excursions such as hiking, biking, camping, and climbing, you will learn what it means to be and live as a disciple.
Come and be inspired by the beauty of Switzerland, reach out to the local outdoor community, and be equipped to reach out to more remote places on outreach.
We are interested in holistic growth. True discipleship transforms your heart, intellect, and skills. We are all about giving you opportunities to grow through application in the community.
I. Lecture Phase
What is the Lecture Phase?
For 11 weeks during the Outdoor DTS, you will hear speakers from all over the world who live out what they teach.
Our lectures are intertwined with outdoor activities to give you a practical learning experience of the topic so that the teachings sink deeper into your heart.
You will learn together how to use your passion for the outdoors to build God’s kingdom through different topics such as nature and character of God, hearing God’s voice, and much more.
Learn different outdoor skills, reach out to the local outdoor community, and prepare to reach out to more remote areas in the world by first gaining a deep understanding of the heart of the Father.

I. Lecture Phase
II. Outreach Phase
Make Him Known.
Bring God to the nations.
Outreach is a time where you solidify the teachings you’ve learned during the lecture phase. Move this new-found knowledge from the head to the heart. You will live out application daily with a team, where you will be presented with discipleship opportunities like:
Take 2 months to apply the skills you've learned in a nation that is desperate to know God.
You have spent 11 weeks learning about the deep connection between the Lord, the land, and your identity in the kingdom; now you are called to GO!
- Preaching - Lead a church service and uncover a passion for teaching God’s word to the nations
- Evangelism - Go out into the streets and bring the heart of the Father to others in a personal way
- Ministry - Partner with local ministries to serve and give back to the community
- Intercession - Take time to hear God’s heart for your nation and stand in the gap
Your leaders prayerfully consider the outreach locations for each team, and the final decision is not made until all the students have arrived in Switzerland and the giftings and passions of each student have been taken into account. The entire process is covered in prayer as we seek God’s will.
