Arise Lunch Connections

Bring your lunch and join us for an open dialogue with fellow women students on the DTS campus. It is our hope to promote the building of authentic relationships among women students despite challenges such as diverse backgrounds, various life stages, and extremely busy schedules. We hope to do this through facilitating conversations about issues our women face on campus and in the ministry and by encouraging one another as we all prepare at DTS to further God’s kingdom. This will be a time of connection for our diverse community of women students.
