Kairos Discipleship School is an 8-month gap year program for young adults ages 18-26, focused on igniting their faith and impacting the world. Students grow in Discipleship, Leadership Training, and Missions as they learn from passionate instructors, gain practical and hands-on leadership skills through church internships and outdoor expedition trips, and share the gospel during an international mission trip. Kairos Discipleship School’s desire is to prepare students to be relevant leaders in their communities, churches, and on the mission field.


Deepen your faith by interacting regularly with gifted teachers, engaging in small groups, and meeting weekly for one-on-one discipleship with a staff member.


Strengthen and stretch your leadership skills by interning at a local church and by leading your peers on a multi-day canoeing wilderness adventure trip.;


Make an impact in the lives of others by serving the poor and homeless in Chicago and by taking the Gospel to the slums of Nairobi, Kenya.

Kairos Alumni

“My season has been centered around transformation. I learned that the Father's heart for me is good, dispelling lies I had come to believe. His grace revealed healing and freedom from heartaches I had carried for years. Through Kairos, I learned how to live each day with Him, and that has made all the difference."

- Daniel Anderson, Tennessee

“My year at Kairos has helped me better understand the power of God’s love for His people. I have seen how His love reaches the darkness of this world, and I have learned that He has given us power to help spread His life and light to others and to be the disciples he calls us to be. Through practical application as each new opportunity comes, I find myself diving deeper into His word and experiencing first hand the wisdom of God that I can then share with those who are broken and need a little light and life!”

- Rachel Wagner, Oregon

"Through Kairos, I've learned to trust in God. I've learned to put aside what I think I knew about Him and let Him show me who He really is. Kairos is about being transformed by God: your character, your heart, and your mindset are being changed day by day even when you are not aware of it. I would say if you come to Kairos, you will be starting a great adventure with God."

- Maxence Givel, Switzerland
