Outreach phase of DTS is eight weeks of opening your eyes to the needs of the world and showing them Jesus in response. Every outreach is different, and could look like anything from building a fresh water supply in Indonesia, to playing metal shows in Berlin, to talking about Jesus over smoothies with Thai college students. You'll get to see what it's like to work with long-term missionaries overseas, and come away with compassion and vision of your own. The main purpose of outreach in DTS is evangelism. You will work and serve in a lot of different ways, but at the end of the day the goal of every outreach is to make God known in all the nations of the earth. So as you choose to do a DTS to are joining the world-wide movement to make Jesus to known in every corner of the globe.
The story of YWAM Montana-Lakeside shares a clear family resemblance with the thousands of other YWAM stories, large and small, that you will hear from the lips of YWAMers all over the world. We began our journey with a handful of people in 1985 that felt called by God to join hearts and lives together in an effort to launch a new ministry in a little known corner of Western Montana. Today, whether a remnant of the few who pioneered the ministry in 1985 or a recent new-comer to the now 160 staff, together we still are doing our heartfelt best to love and follow Jesus while playing our respective parts. Whether running a school, leading a team, swinging a hammer, cooking a meal or running an office, our ongoing call is to complete the assignment God gave us so many years ago to see the next generation equipped and ready to receive and respond to their Kingdom assignment with the same joy and confidence with which our founders started out so may years ago, still trusting that the One who loves and calls us is still well able to empower us to complete the race he has called us to run.
