Surf and Skate DTS takes place at our campus in beautiful Ensenada, Mexico, right across the road from the beach. Surrounded by natural beauty, our campus is a great atmosphere to make Jesus the focal point of your life, while giving you the opportunity to share with others about God's story.
We invite you to come and allow Him to bring real growth and change in you. All of this will happen as you use your passion to bring Him glory. Students will have the opportunity to spend the morning in the water or a few afternoons on their boards.
The DTS is a 5 month course that will challenge and sharpen your walk with God. The first 3 months are spent in a learning atmosphere which is followed by 2 months of outreach where students travel and share their faith. It's also the perfect place for a wide variety of awesome opportunities to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

After the 12-week lecture phase, the students go on an outreach for eight weeks, usually to another country. The outreach phase enables students to apply the concepts they learned during the lecture phase, and to tell the world about the awesome God we serve!
