Sports and Fitness DTS
Do not waste time arguing over godless ideas and old wives’ tales. Instead, train yourself to be godly. “Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.”
1 Timothy 4:7-8
Our Sports DTS is aimed at young people who want to deepen their relationship with God and who have a passion for sports and physical activity. We desire to see young people to truly "Know God and Make Him Known" through discipleship and faith in action. This is done through the 12 week lecture phase and 8 week outreach phase with an emphasis on sports and physical activity. So, get ready to be challenged both spiritually and physically in one of the most sports mad countries on earth - New Zealand.
