Business DTS Overview

All over the world, business men and women are having their eyes opened to God’s purpose for business as a vital instrument for fulfilling the Great Commission. These men and women are learning that business has power to transform communities and nations in Jesus’ name.

However, transformation begins with us! The DTS is a focused on personal development and spiritual formation as we study together in class, reflect on our spiritual lives, and live in community. We begin by learning about God, looking at his Father’s heart, and His nature and character. Then through every topic during the 12 week lecture phase we think about how the teaching applies in a business context.

This Business DTS is designed for people with any interest in business, including entrepreneurs/owners, business practitioners, business students, or those exploring business as a catalyst for transformational change. It is ideal for participants wanting to set aside time in their lives to know God more deeply and identify how to use your unique gifts to serve Him in the marketplace. The Business DTS will help lay solid foundations for a life of service to God through business, either in your home community, or to the ends of the Earth!
