GAP Application


Welcome to God’s Alternative Program. Our mission is to equip you for TRUE SUCCESS that is built on cultivating Stewardship, Stamina, and Skills, and we believe that this application will help us better understand your hunger and desire to join us on that journey. 


Applications will be considered in the order they are received. We value quality over quantity, and as such, at this point in the GAP’s development, there are a limited number of slots of acceptance. Follow the steps below to begin your journey on Denton Bible’s GAP Year Life-Leadership Program:

  • Step 1: Complete the written portion below (allow approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour). Once you submit the application, you will receive an email with instructions for step 2. 


  • Step 2: Record and submit a 2-5 minute video answering several questions and scenarios. Admissions committee will contact you if you are selected to continue to Step 3 in the GAP Application process.


  • Step 3: Personal interview (video or face-to-face). Once you have completed this step, please allow a 2-week turnaround for a final acceptance decision.


  • Applications will be accepted until July 31, 2021.
