Internships for DTS Students

Internships for DTS Students

Purpose

Internship process for DTS students actively links God’s activity in the classroom with God’s activity outside the classroom. The purpose of our contextually-based education program includes:

  • Develop a specific direction and purpose for ministry/vocation
  • Identify personal strengths, weaknesses, and sin issues that impact the ability to provide servant leadership in your ministry/vocation
  • Propose strategies and tactics for personal and professional development
  • Clearly display how you relate to God, what you are learning about yourself and ministry, and what you are learning about loving others
