Pilgrimage DTS

October 19, 2020 - January 1, 2030

Pilgrimage DTS

If you want to strip away the distractions of life to seek and discover God in His Word and Creation, then the Pilgrimage DTS is designed for you!

Put very simply, a pilgrimage is a journey with a purpose – to find God, to know Him, and experience His Presence. In ancient Biblical times, this meant a physical trek to the temple in Jerusalem. Today, it’s often an internal spiritual exploration.

In the Pilgrimage DTS, we combine both of these types of pilgrimage in our determination to seek God with our whole being – both physical and spiritual. So come with us on a journey into the beautiful New Zealand wilderness, and the deep places of your own heart. It’s an adventure that may stretch you to your limits. But, if you come looking for Him, you’ll find that our wild, creative, and loving God is with you every step of the way.


The first 3 months of the DTS are a time to focus your life on God, learning to know and be known by Him in every aspect of life. This is your opportunity to open up to the Lord (and others) about your struggles, triumphs, questions, convictions, wounds, and scars. In turn, you will find God to be your Father, Healer, Comforter, Warrior, and Sustainer – the One who lifts off your burdens and frees you to live life to the fullest.

On the Pilgrimage DTS, your home base will be our Training Centre located in Tauranga, New Zealand. From there you will head out on 3-4 camping/backpacking trips. In this way, you’ll engage in lectures, worship, and prayer times both inside a classroom and out tramping some epic trails on New Zealand’s North Island. In both places, you will build relationships with fellow students and staff from all over the world, learn to be a part of a community that is loving, challenging, and encouraging. While at the Centre, you’ll also have a weekly “stream” class exploring the fascinating themes of pilgrimage woven throughout the story of the Bible.


Below is an overview of what could be covered in our weekly streams:
