Get ready for all-out bold adventures in beautiful and adrenaline-pumping New Zealand.

Connect your longing for adventure to the One who created it– and learn to draw others into the heart of God while enjoying His breathtaking handiwork. The Ocean to Mount Discipleship Training School (DTS) combines your passion for Jesus with fun-filled adventures such as bungy jumping, high ropes courses, white water rafting, and hiking to Cathedral Cove.

Come be part of an authentic community seeking to experience God’s character and love in a radical way. And what better place to experience that than gorgeous New Zealand? Each week of the three-month Training Phase, O2M participants dive into growing in Christ and sharing your faith. Saturdays are outdoors experiencing adventure and the beauty of Tauranga and the North Island of New Zealand.

Activities can include:

  • Whitewater rafting
  • Bungy jumping
  • Rock climbing
  • Caving
  • High ropes course
  • Exploring beautiful hidden beaches
  • Hiking/Tramping
  • And much more!

Finally, you’ll take your heart of adventure to the nations during the two-month Outreach Phase. We are committed to reaching the lost, caring for the poor, and loving the one in front of us. Our short-term outreaches serve long-term workers and come alongside existing ministries. Altogether, it will be an unforgettable experience as you know God and make Him known.
