How to study and communicate God’s Word effectively
The Nature and Character of God
Intercession and spiritual warfare
The Holy Spirit
ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM
Each week as a campus we come together corporately to praise and worship God. Monday morning worship, at 8am, and Ohana Gathering at 6pm on Thursdays.
Prayer & Bible study
Prayer and studying the Bible are keys to a relationship with God. We are blessed to have a prayer room open 24/7 and a Bible department as a resources for growing and knowing God.
We desire to know God and to make Him known, and invite others to do the same. The campus library, prayer room, or one of the outdoor tables are some places to spend time alone with God.
Having an international community is a highlight of our campus. Weekend soccer matches, meals in our open air cafeteria, or drinks at The Banyan Tree cafe are ways to meet those around you.
Located in the heart of Kona, our campus has many opportunities to serve those in need around us. Whether serving the homeless or tutoring at a local school, we can share Jesus' love.
Fun & Adventure
The Big Island is beautiful, diverse, and makes weekends perfect for discovering a new beach, exploring Volcano National Park, or taking a tour through one of the many Kona coffee farms.
At the completion of the classroom phase, students have the opportunity to ‘make God known’ in the outreach phase. The Gospel comes alive as students step out in faith to preach the good news, baptize new believers and heal the sick (Mark 16:15-18). Outreach is an exhilarating time of risk and adventure, as teams serve with local believers: transforming lives and impacting society with the love of Jesus Christ.
OUR DTS STORIES
Children in India
Children in India ⋅ 23/07/17
Our outreach to India was challenging but INCREDIBLE! Working with children in India changes you. They are so open to the things of The Spirit. It gives you hope for the future of India. The heat and challenges of the country quickly fade when you are and see the hunger in the hearts of these little ones to know God. It ruins you for the ordinary!
Our outreach in Israel involved serving in many ways. While some mopped floors others cooked. There were meaningful ministry times that included washing feet and other times that involved picking trash up in the streets. The picking up of trash is something that has become a trademark in the community when Crossroaders are in town. The merchants who used to find it a curiosity in years past are now…
He Who began a good work in you will be faithful... ⋅ 09/07/17
Why, you may ask, are all these people pointing at each other? Well I’ll tell you:) It was the last day of lecture phase and we were all singing to each other, “He Who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it.” And He is! Those who went on outreach had a chance to have Him continue the work He had begun through so many interactions…
While enroute from one location in Germany to another our team had a long layover in a bus stop. David, with the ukulele, sang songs that attracted the man in the picture below, who has dark hair and glasses, to come over. His delight eventually turned to tears. He began to ask "eternal" questions and our team's "wasted" time ended up being a divine appointment! Hmmm, makes me think about…

We work hard, study hard, lean into God for our needs and many other life changing things. But one aspect that is often left out of the Christian life is celebration. Hawaii provides us with a beautiful backdrop to celebrate all the ways God changes us during the lecture phase of the school.
2017 Outreach to Syrian Refugees in Germany ⋅ 10/05/17
One of the most difficult aspects of life in a refugee camp for children is the sheer boredom. We learned to play a great game in Hawaii using a parachute. Kids love it and it brings the whole family out to watch. Many invite us back into their living quarters to talk and to share tea. Physical and emotional healings are taking place and many doors are being opened to…
[caption id="attachment_9893" align="alignnone" width="400"] India Outreach April 2017[/caption] Over a period of four weeks we did seven Vacation Bible Schools for over 600 children. Their enthusiasm was contagious. God is preparing the way for a huge wave of The Gospel to spread throughout this land!!!
