Kingdom DTS is an incredible experience that will change your life and change the world. Often I hear from people who are overwhelmed by the weight of the world’s problems - poverty, injustice, war, corruption, etc. ‘How can I make a difference?’ is often the question asked. I believe Jesus offers answers to this question and I believe through relationship, by acts of obedience and kindness you can change one individual person's world forever. In my years of experience in missions I have seen it, heard it over and over again. I invite you to join this amazing DTS where you’ll encounter Jesus in deeply personal ways, make incredible friends and grow in ways you never though possible - all while investing in a movement that truly is helping the hurting and the lost.
The Lecture Phase
12 weeks, 12 speakers, 12 topics. Small groups, work duties, one on one conversations and local outreach. Lots of coffee, tea and good craic (* Irish for fun). This is a residential, live-learn environment where you will journey through with other young people from all over the world and from different socio-economic backgrounds. It’s a time to stretch your understanding of God, yourself, other people and the world. You’ll learn not only from experienced leaders and Bible teachers, but from your bunkmate who gets on your nerves. The collision of cultures and new experiences is the best teacher.

The Outreach Phase
This is where you get to go out in smaller teams to serve God and our local contacts in our focus nations. We hope to go to India and (2nd TBA location) , work with people facing extreme poverty, kids born in slums, persecuted church and locals.
After the 2 month international outreach everyone will spend few days or so in different parts of Northern Ireland & Republic of Ireland. (If you don't know why two countries then you are up for a fun ride of learning). The idea is to share stories from outreach and get Irish young people excited about what God is doing around the world. They are hungry for authentic faith and to not repeat the mistakes that led to the Troubles (1969-1998). There are still problems related to sectarian division, but we believe Jesus is part of the solution rather than part of the problem.
*Outreach locations can change due to unforeseen circumstances.
