Frequently Asked Questions
is a fun, challenging, mind-blowing road trip for high school students provided by Kingdom Building Ministries that is designed as an intensive discipleship program. The goal is to give a variety of experiences, one-on-one coaching, classroom teaching, and life skills that will help each student live passionately for Christ (heart on fire) and intentionally impact the world around them with the love of Christ (life on purpose).
There are two phases of the program:
Intensive Discipleship Phase (16 Days)
: In the Intensive Discipleship Phase, students will participate as a team in an adventurous, multi-stop road trip across the country with ministry opportunities, discipleship training and one-on-one coaching packed into a 24/7 schedule all along the way.
Ministry and Support Phase (24 weeks)
: In the Ministry and Support Phase, one-on-one coaches (assigned to each student during the 16-day Intensive Discipleship Phase) will encourage, pray, and provide accountability for students as they return home and begin to apply what they have learned in the “real world”.
Who can attend
is designed for high school students who have given their lives to Christ and desire to grow spiritually. Students who have completed their freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior year are welcome to attend
When and where does 16 Days take place?
is a road trip, so students will see many places and engage many different environments throughout the program. The Intensive Discipleship Phase (June 7-22) begins and ends in Denver, CO. The Ministry and Support Phase (June 23-Dec 31, 2013) is a distance coaching component that helps the student reengage life back in their home or school environments.
The Intensive Discipleship Phase of the program starts and ends at the launch location. Twelve days of the program take place in other locations across the US. The Ministry and Support Phase of the program happens back at the student’s home environment, where they will be coached from a distance through electronic communication, phone calls, and prayer support to help them apply what they’ve learned to real life.
When is the application deadline?
We are encouraging students to submit applications as early as possible to facilitate preparation for the summer which includes raising financial support for this discipleship training mission. Students must
at least two months before the start of the program.
What does the program cost?
The program cost is $2,000 which includes everything (meals, housing, transportation, activities, etc.) from the moment they arrive at the launch location until they return to that launch location and graduate from the program. It also includes the communication and support from a one-on-one coach during the Ministry and Support Phase. The cost of the program does not include transportation to and from the launch location or spending money for gifts, trinkets, etc. during the Intensive Discipleship Phase of the program.
Are there any discounts or scholarships available?
We offer a $100 discount for recruiting a friend to apply and participate in 16 Days. Students can receive a maximum discount of $200 for recruiting up to two friends. If desired, students can pass a portion of this discount on to their friend/s. We will also walk along-side each student in the support raising process by assessing their individual situation, providing a support-raising strategy, and helping them develop a prayer team.
