COFFEE AND COMMUNICATIONS
ABOUT COFFEE AND COMMUNICATIONS DTS
Get ready to use your talents and passion to share God's ultimate creativity with the world.
Coffee and Communications is part of MAD DTS
The world runs on the fuel of coffee and communications. These two artistic expressions are the most influential platforms in our modern society. It's over coffee that creatives explore and build their art and it's through communications that those art forms are shared and enjoyed by the world over. The beauty of art is that it's a mutual language spoken in every country of the world – you don’t need a translator to tell your story! Through the innovation of coffee expression and latte art, and the world of communications, team up with God, share His stories and make a change in the world! This Discipleship Training School allows you to deepen your relationship with the Creator as well as learn to influence the world around you with your gifts and talents. That’s what it’s all about!
During this DTS you'll explore more in depth cafe culture, learning practical cafe and barista skills and how to influence an innovative and modern society. We also have a place for those who love to camp out in a cafe all day, writing, journaling, and finding inspiration for creative pursuits. This DTS is all about cafe culture and the incredible things that can come from lively intersections of culture, creativity, and innovation.

The Discipleship Training School consists of two phases.
The Training Phase where you hear topics that take you deeper into your relationship with God. You learn things like the character and nature of God, Hearing His voice, God's Father heart for us.
The Outreach Phase takes a more practical approach and applies the principles of loving others all over the world. Teams from the DTS split up and travel to different outreach destinations. In short, you first get to know God, then focus on making Him known.
During the DTS, you'll have teaching on biblical topics such as:
The Character and Nature of God
Hearing the Voice of God
The Father Heart of God
Spiritual Warfare, Worship & Intercession
