As the Community Transformations family, we have a deep value for seeking to know Jesus and have the presence of God manifest in every part of our lives. Unless our attempts at transformation come from a place of deep relationship, love, encounter with the Creator, we can never achieve sustainable change in our lives or the world. In abiding in the vine (John 15) and being with Jesus (Acts 4:13), we see ourselves transformed and partner with Jesus to see the nations transformed.
In this place of intimacy, encountering God ceases to be about us, but becomes about him, and learning to love him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. This simple gospel transforms our lives and community, as we begin to look like Jesus. The Community Transformations family is all about being transformed to be like Jesus, to walk like Jesus walked, and even suffer with him for the sake his glory in all the earth. We want to know Jesus, look like him, and follow him into the rest of our lives.
As the Comm Trans family we believe this transformation of our lives and community leads us to a true incarnational response of discipling the nations of the earth. By being a transformed community, loving God, and being loved by Him, we display the transformative power of the gospel to the world. As we walk like Jesus in the nations, bringing his love to every part of society, to the rich and poor, to the lost and the broken, the simplicity of encountering God and his gospel transforms the world. All disciples have the power to change the world, bringing people to Jesus, and teaching them to do all that he commanded (Matt 28:18). It’s an invitation for the world to know God and be transformed as they follow him.
This is Revival – the turning of our hearts to God, with a desire to glorify him with all of our lives.
Both the 12 week lecture phase and 12-week field assignment of the Community Transformations DTS (Discipleship Training School) are designed to equip and unleash a generation upon the world who are fueled by radical prayer and deep love, willing to change the world and disciple nations! As a DTS community we come before the Lord daily to learn from him, apply the word of God radically to our lives, and take the message of Jesus to the streets. Outreach locations are chosen early on so you can begin to engage with the Lords heart for your outreach nation, then you travel to that location for three months. The goal of outreach is to live out an example of what the rest of your life will be, regardless of where the Lord takes you. The Community Transformations DTS is a place where you can begin to live this transformation out for His Glory.
The DTS is just the start – Community Transformations is also all about launching transformative families of disciples around the globe! Currently there are 9 Comm trans families seeing their communities transformed. Centered around the presence of God, these communities will seek to bring his Kingdom wherever they are, even in some of the hardest and darkest places on earth. It is our desire to raise up and launch many of these families in the next several years, and you can be a part! Students in the Community Transformations DTS are invited to live the radical life of Jesus, a life that leads us into the nations, responding from His love with a desire to bring him the glory he deserves. Community Transformations is all about radical intimacy, radical community, radical generosity, radical obedience, and radical faith. Come join us with your gifts, passions, and abilities, living out intimacy with Jesus, unto fruitfulness in the nations.
