How My DTS Impacts My Work Today

By Nicki Smith on April 8, 2021 11:12:03 AM NZST


I’ve served as a YWAM missionary for over 10 years now. I work with the traveling community: young adults on a gap year, traveling the world, looking for adventure and hoping to ‘find themselves.’ This is a relational ministry. It’s about knowing how to connect with people from different backgrounds of culture, religion and experiences. I need to know how to effectively share the Gospel, meet their needs, pray with them and teach scripture. I encounter many different world views, new age beliefs and atheism as I work with backpackers. My passion for this work, my training and experience all came from my time as a student and staff on the DTS in Oxford.
