What is the Snowboarders DTS?

The beautiful city of Vancouver is surrounded by mountains, for most of the year we get to see snow on top of those mountains reaching up to the sky. After 17 years of doing DTS’s in the city, this year we are reaching for the mountains.

This DTS is designed for you to know God by walking alongside people that want to dedicate their lives to God and love snow. We desire to show Christ to the mountain culture by the way we love, the way we do family, and the way we give. This DTS will equip you to disciple others, influence your environment by loving radically, and by imitating Christ while shredding in one of the most beautiful parts of Canada.

Whether you snowboard or ski, if you love riding the hill, and want to get to know God, this is the place to be.

What to Expect

The plan is to be out there as much as possible, processing what God is doing in our lives and the lives of others. We will go to a local mountain at least a couple days a week and make some trips to bigger mountains Canada has to offer. After our 3 months in Canada, our hope is to do the field assignment in an unreached snowboarding nation. We will have to pray for snow!

Meet The Leaders

Betty Ann Cyr – DTS Leader

Betty Ann has done a Snowboarder DTS in 2008 in Oxford NZ.

The possibility of following Christ and being a snowboarder blew my mind. It was the fulfillment of Eph 3: 20, “He is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine”. Never would I have guessed that I could live my passion and honor God at the same time. I am now ecstatic that I can bring the same reality to the boarding culture of Canada. My hope is that this DTS brings you closer to God while experiencing creation at it’s fullest. There is nothing like interceding for nations from the top of mountains!

Chris Harder – Outreach Leader

Chris is a BC native raised with a deep love and connection for Jesus and the mountains around him.  By the age of five he was climbing rocks, shredding the slopes, and had thoroughly been bitten by the travel bug.  Since then he has traveled the world, worked in full time ministry and started his own photography company.  He loves Jesus, snowboarding and exploring the world we live in!
