Sample DTS Lecture Phase with Occasional Corporate Practices
Sample DTS Outreach Phase Schedule with Corporate Practices
The weekly corporate practices support the flow and focus of the Outreach, as well as supporting the reflection, integration and application from the whole DTS. They provide times for deepening the learning, application and transformation that occurred during the Lecture Phase, as well as providing an opportunity for further integration of learning and transformation into desires, thoughts and actions in every part of day to day living. Obviously, occasional corporate practices such as celebration will also continue through this time.
N.B. in the schedule above one-on-ones take place during travel to and from ministry. This time can also be used for preparation or ministry.
