Engage has the awesome opportunity to partner with Richie Shilliday who is the founder and director of 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. Its 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, you will serve RIOT and help facilitate the Youth Center hang out times when its doors are open. You will go on a prayer walk through Tollymore Forest, where C.S. Lewis played as a kid and got his inspiration for Narnia. You 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, you will participate in the movement of the Spirit across this beautiful country that is so rich in culture and history.
View COVID-19 CDC and U.S. Department of State Advisory Levels. The advisories are reviewed and updated (if necessary) by the corresponding departments every 2-4 weeks. Some trip locations are currently subject to Level 4 (Do Not Travel) Advisories from the CDC and/or Department of State. In some cases, the United States or the destination country may refuse to allow travel in or out. In that instance, participants will whenever possible be offered the opportunity to choose a different location/date (subject to change in cost) or divert funds raised to the following year. Funds given toward a short-term mission trip cannot be refunded to the intended participant or the giver.
