Discipleship Training Relationship (DTR)


The DTR is designed to encourage students (church members) in personal character development by cultivating a living relationship with God and identifying their unique individual gifts and callings in God. This is accomplished through a disciplined lifestyle, biblical relationship, and preparation to reach current and future generations by going “into all the world and make disciples of all the nations” (Matt 28:18-20).

The Goals of DTR:

  1. To equip students to grow in a relationship with God, providing a solid Biblical foundation and encouraging the development of Christ-like character through the personal application of truth.
  2. To prepare the students to disciple others (families, friends, new believers) more effectively.
  3. To prepare the students for service in their local church and the local community.
