What is Crossfit?
Crossfit is a high-intensity fitness programme incorporating elements from several sports and types of exercise. What makes this form of exercise so unique is the community aspect. Every level of fitness is welcomed and accommodated for. Everyone works together as a team and encourages one another to push harder and try new things.
We will be joining with the local Crossfit gym two to three times a week as a part of our schedule. Our vision with this ministry is to build relationships with the local Crossfit community. We want to practically show the love of Christ with them through the way we live and relate with one another. What a cool way to relate Spiritual discipline to physical discipline! Also, our base encourages exercise and a healthy lifestyle. What a great way to maintain your fitness during your DTS.
Lecture Phase - Your first 3 months:
The Crossfit DTS runs alongside the Surf, Skate and Backpackers DTS. All lectures and extra circular activities will be done together. The only difference is the scheduled Crossfit ministry times throughout the week. Lecture Phase runs for 3 months. In this time you will grow in your personal relationship with God, learn about Biblical truths and how to apply them, and have opportunities to step out in exciting new ways. You will get to journey with God through lectures, community meals, local outreach, fun times at the gym, small groups, personal discipleship, prayer and worship times. God has so much He wants to show you and tell you. Come learn about His heart for you and His heart for the nations.
Let’s go deeper!
Outreach - Going into all the world (next 3 months)
During your lecture phase you will find out which specific countries and missions you will be able to join for your overseas outreach.
Our base in Byron has connections and a heart for many of the East Asian countries like Indonesia, East Timor, Papua New Guinea, Cambodia and Thailand. We also have had teams more recently in other nations such as Turkey and India. Get ready for an amazing journey with God!
