Our Commitment

DELTA  is dedicated to "Knowing God", "Loving His People" and "Reaching the World".  Because DELTA is concerned with the "whole Christian," each ministry is geared to offer an experience that is three dimensional:

  • "Knowing God" demonstrates concern for the spiritual growth and well-being of each short-termer.  Each short-termer comes away from a DELTA experience with a deeper understanding of God and an enriched relationship with Him.  This comes as a result of careful discipleship, training and the practice of new lifestyle disciplines.  To be actively concerned with one's relationship to God is the first step in achieving the next two aspects of our PNG_celebrationcommitment to whole missions.

  • "Loving His People" is being a blessing and not a burden to the missionaries and national hosts for each team.  It is equally important that the teams reach out, encourage and partner with the believers in the national churches.

  • "Reaching the World" communicates our commitment to evangelism and discipleship of new believers.  This is accomplished through building relationships, preaching, tract distribution, surveys, door-to-door, testimonies, performing arts, prayer and more.

These three areas touch virtually all aspects of life and ministry.  Together, they help to insure not only a successful mission but significant life change in each short-termer.


To mobilize means to put into movement. DELTA puts individuals, churches, schools and partners into movement to accomplish The Great Commission. This movement is from a home, pew, or seat to a field location around the world. Since 1979, DELTA has put 10,000 individuals and over 1,000 churches, schools and ministries into 100 countries and 30 US states.
