2|42 Students is partnering with CIY Engage to go on a mission trip to Ireland. Engage has the awesome opportunity to partner with Richie Shilliday who is the founder and director of the program RIOT (Revival In Our Town). Through various programs, RIOT aims to be an extension of the love of Jesus by building a healthy community and being a place of safety and encouragement for the local youth. RIOT’s Youth Center is open to provide after-school hang-out or tutoring, specialty classes on subjects such as youth leadership and suicide awareness, and drop-in evenings for fun and worship. Though Northern Ireland is believed to have a strong Christian influence, only a small percentage of the population has an active walk with Christ. Few teens claim to be Christians. Throughout this experience, our Students will serve RIOT and help facilitate the Youth Center hang out times when its doors are open. They will go on a prayer walk through Tollymore Forest, where C.S. Lewis played as a kid and got his inspiration for Narnia. Our students will also get to retrace the steps of St. Patrick and learn the story of how Christianity was brought to Ireland. Ultimately, through the component of prayer, we are excited to see how our students will participate in the movement of the Spirit across this beautiful country that is so rich in culture and history.
