Frontiers DTS (中文/English)

Starts Every: April

In response to COVID-19 restriction, we’ve had to temporarily scale back from the 20+ DTSes we usually run each year. Read more about our usual range here or find out about our upcoming October 2021 DTS and January 2022 DTS!


God’s desire is that “none should perish” – that every person would have an opportunity to encounter Jesus and respond to Him. The Frontiers DTS is an invitation to the challenge of taking His love to the hard to reach, to those with limited access to the gospel. 

A key to effective frontier missions is learning to live and relate cross-culturally. We’ll have opportunity to do this from the moment you enter our missions centre in Perth.

We’ll start with three months of focused learning, immersed in our multicultural community. Learning and growth don’t happen just in a classroom, but also in the streets, in serving practically, in sharing the gospel, in small-group discussion and more. 

From there we’ll launch into the adventure of taking the gospel to the frontiers. Many of our outreaches focus on the nations along the ancient Silk Road through Asia. There is incredible potential to see these ancient routes given new life as ways to bring the gospel to the nations. Throughout our three month outreach we’ll share the Good News and meet practical needs, invest in relationships and blaze new trails. We’ll take on the challenges of going cross-cultural, doing what it takes to live out the love of Jesus. 

We wrap up with a week back in Perth, sharing the stories of what God has done and looking to what He has ahead.


A DTS is often one stage of your missions preparation, so after DTS you can be further equipped with specialised training through courses like our School of Frontier Missions, or join staff to continue the journey of serving Jesus in the nations with an initiative like our Frontiers ministry.

During our outreach in the Middle East we had the opportunity to run a youth camp for over 40 youth. The theme of the camp was “Let my life see the light." For several afternoons we prepared skits, testimonies and application times around teaching on Repentance and Forgiveness. We saw God touch the youth in really powerful ways and on the last night there was such a move of repentance sweeping across the room. During the application time, I was able to lead one of the guys to the Lord as an application of the teaching. You could visibly see people's faces looking different as they cried out to God with tears of repentance. We were then able to follow up the time with talking through setting up boundaries in their life to live in holiness.
