“DTS changed my life. My faith changed and grew more in those six months than in the twenty-some years before. Now, six months later, I haven’t stopped growing or changing, and I hope I never will.

I don’t want to go back to who I was before DTS. I can’t imagine going back to that. I had all my doctrinal ducks in a line and went to church every week and did some serving here and there, but my faith was incomplete. I was bound by so many things–cultural expectations, pride, generational sin, idols…and I knew I was missing something, something important about the Gospel.

During Lecture phase, I learned from speakers who constantly made me question my worldview, my actions, and my theology. I felt broken and remade almost every day. It is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I learned that, after twenty-some years as a Christian, I hardly knew anything at all. Doctrines that I’d thought I understood (“God loves me.” / “I’m saved by grace through faith.”) finally hit home, and I found myself weeping from the awesomeness of it on a regular basis.

God freed me during DTS, and I am now 100% his, and I can’t wait to see what he does with me!”
