WHAT IS SMI?
Every year we spend about 15 weeks studying evangelism, apologetics, and Christian, Bible-based responses for various world views and social issues. During this time, the students are committed to prayer, Scripture memorization, and high standards of Christian living. The training all leads up to a week-long, life changing, summer mission trip.
Any student who wishes to participate in SMI, must complete an application and interview with a member of the D|S Student Ministries team. Interviews are available by appointment only, sign up for yours today!
SMI TRAINING LUNCH-IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER WITH LUNCHES!
If you would like to get involved, and help provide meals to our students during their training sessions this is a great way to serve along side of our students.
