What is


At Marine Reach New Zealand, We Love Discipleship!

Join us on our beautiful property for a DTS (Discipleship Training School). DTS is an intense 3-month missions training course in New Zealand where you will encounter God through powerful worship and engaging Biblical teaching, and you’ll also receive one-on-one mentoring in our caring live/learn community. Additionally, you will have opportunities to visit iconic locations around the Bay of Plenty, Waikato and Coromandel Districst, such as Hobbiton, Cathedral Cove, and the Rotorua Geothermal region. DTS Outreach is a 2-month outreach overseas where you will have the opportunity to show the love of Christ to the nations in practical ways.

Are you ready to Go Deeper?


During your 3-month, New Zealand Lecture Phase, you’ll be equipped to follow God with a new Lecture topic each week. For Example: Understanding Your Calling, Hearing God’s Voice, Developing Healthy Relationships, The Father Heart of God, Holy Spirit, and Exploring a Biblical Worldview are all topics that could be covered on your DTS.

In addition to the daily Lectures, you will get to take part in powerful times of worship, passionate prayer and intercession, and one-on-one discipleship, all combined together in our Live/Learn community.


Pack your bags, it’s time for Outreach! During your 8-Week Outreach Phase, you will take the valuable things you’ve learned from Lectures and Stream times and share them with those in need. You’ll do this through service, mercy ministry, sharing the Gospel, discipleship, or heart-to-heart ministry. You could travel to a nation in the South Pacific or Southeast Asia, announcing the Gospel of the Kingdom wherever you go. The world is waiting for you!


We offer 10 different DTS Streams, with each one having its own passion-based theme that runs through the school. Your DTS Stream will meet weekly to dive into the heart of the Stream, go deeper in your walk with God, and learn new tools for an effective outreach and life after DTS.

For example: the Pilgrimage DTS has lectures in the classroom, but also takes lectures into the outdoors onto iconic New Zealand trails! This then flows into outreach and becomes a tool to reach people. The Medical Compassion DTS learns about both medical and compassion in lecture phase, then uses them to reach people on outreach phase.
