Go Pacific DTS

January 20 @ 8:00 am - July 20 @ 5:00 pm

Go Pacific DTS

Do you have a love for culture and people, and are ready to GO further and deeper for your outreach? The Go Pacific DTS is for you!

Picture yourself going into a remote Island village giving away – for the first time – new Bibles in their local language! Or going to bring the message of hope and good news! In Matthew 28 Jesus commissioned us to GO and MAKE disciples of all nations. The Go Pacific DTS follows that call and goes into the South Pacific to share the love and truth of Jesus Christ. You will experience the rich Pacific culture and discover God’s love for these people. Will YOU answer the call to “GO”?

Are you ready for an adventure with God? Going beyond what’s familiar to GO to the places that are overlooked or forgotten? The Go Pacific DTS is your opportunity to give your all and go after God’s heart, and then carry His heart to the people of the Pacific.



In the first three months of the DTS, you will dig deep into God’s character, spending time in His presence, exploring who He really is, and seeing how God’s glory shines through Pacific Islanders. You will also spend time learning about the rich culture of the South Pacific Islands, learning songs, dances, and discovering how the message of Christ applies to every TRIBE, NATION, and TONGUE.

Opportunities on the Go Pacific DTS include a pōwhiri (a traditional Māori ceremony to welcome the DTS), cultural nights filled with food, fellowship, and dance, maybe an overnight stay at a local Marae (Māori community house)! Other opportunities may include local outreach to Island communities or church groups here in Tauranga. You will not want to miss out on these activities!
