What the Mission Trip Will Be Like
Ireland… who needs to say more? Its rolling countryside is like a patchwork of vibrant greens sewn together, dotted with the ruins of medieval castles and cobblestoned city squares that butt up against its jagged and rocky seaside cliffs. Ireland’s past is dotted with violence, but the Irish are committed to peace and are some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.
Ministry—Ireland has a strong history of Catholicism and Protestantism, however, due to centuries of conflict between the two, many Irish youth have become disillusioned with the idea of established religion. You’ll partner with local churches to make new friends and share about the new, meaningful life Jesus desires for them to live. Following Christ doesn’t have to mean any of these old fashioned notions that are associated with their grandparents; faith in Christ and living for Him today is relevant and does matter, and you get to be a part of making that known among this generation of Irish youth!
Adventure—Seeking adventure? How about traveling to an island that looks like it comes right out of a fairy tale? You’ll see amazing things such as Dunluce Castle, Giant’s Causeway, and the famed Carrick-a-Rede Bridge. Explore thousand-year-old castles, walk the beaches of the North Coast, and maybe even enjoy a taste of your own heritage. Over 10% of Americans have some Irish ancestry, meaning for some of you this could be your opportunity to see the motherland.
Experience Culture—Although Ireland is an English-speaking country, their regional accents will be challenging and provide you plenty of opportunities to ask, “Could you repeat that?” And just when you think you have the accent mastered, you will move to your second ministry location (and a new accent) and have to start over. Like most Europeans, the Irish tend to be night owls, which means your ministry activities often start late and end even later! But don’t fret, if there’s one thing Ireland knows how to do right, it’s a proper cup of tea or coffee which will keep you going.
Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals
Your ministry in Ireland will be defined and organized by the local pastors, church members, ministry directors, and missionaries who are our ministry partners.
