Our Beliefs and Actions in Response to Racism in America
Recent events where Black Americans have been wrongfully attacked and murdered highlight a history of racism that is abhorrent and must not be accepted. Racism is a sin against God and man. Christ followers and the Church in all its forms can’t rest until equality is achieved.
Adventures in Missions seeks to Awaken and Activate Christ Followers to their identity and role in His Kingdom.
Our beliefs are as follows:
Man was created in the image of God. A sin against man is a sin against God. Racism is an affront to God and His people. Genesis 1:27
We are commissioned as followers of Christ to be a force for His Kingdom. Therefore we will stand against all forms of racism in any dimension of society.
We acknowledge that religion has been invoked to support racism and we break all agreement with it.
We covenant to identify ourselves as members together of the body of Christ and ambassadors of the kingdom of God above any cultural, social, political, or economic identification or affiliation.
From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth and we will be agents of reconciliation and unity. Acts 17:26
We will advocate for the voice and the life of those impacted by racism until righteousness, justice and equality are achieved. Amos 5
We will exhort all people within our influence to embrace these core principles.
Our beliefs lead us to the following immediate actions:
The ministry and its leaders support (with our actions and funds) OneRaceMovement, an Atlanta based covenantal ministry focused on eliminating racism.
Additionally we will directly support their mission through direct engagement.
As leaders we will personally engage with our brothers and sisters in the Black American community to seek to understand their perspective and plight and come alongside their fight for equality.
We will prepare our upcoming WorldRace America squads to engage in the ministry of racial reconciliation by inviting pastors and alumni of color to teach and train them.
We will encourage Racers that departed the field early to find and engage in a local ministry seeking racial equality.
We will invite local Black American pastors to teach in our Monday morning staff worship.
We will pray that God and His people will serve to break the bondage of racism in this nation.
We will use our social media platform to exhort these principles by inviting in people of color to discuss them.
Discover how to ignite your passions for the kingdom.

Adventures in Missions cares deeply about discipleship and bringing the Gospel to the ends of the earth. I've personally seen their leaders strive for excellence and humbly apologize when mistakes have been made. I personally went on a World Race trip and have lead a World Race trip as well. It's a great program that gives individuals an opportunity to grow in their intimacy with God, relationships within the Body of Christ, and expand their understanding and experiences of living with a clear mission to make the Gospel of Jesus Christ known in the smallest of moments and biggest of opportunities.

No longer a slave to fear, as I now walk fully in my identity with Christ. Saddest part about this trip? In two months it is over for me. :(
Truthfully, I am ready for my next season of life. Pressing into what Jesus has for me back home. Experience with AIM in one word? Let's see..... Blessed.

The Adventures in Missions staff are so fun, love Jesus, and go above and beyond to invest in our personal lives. They truly love Jesus and want to help us grow in our walk with him. I went there for training camp a few weeks ago and it was literally life changing. Thanks for a great experience AIM!

This organization is amazing. They taught me so much. It was a raw and real experience. They opened my eyes up what the world is really like. I broke out of my shell and grow closer to God. The people on my team have become family to me. We may live far apart but I know they will always be there for me. I had a great time and would recommend this to anyone.

I recently went to Peru through aim and I cannot explain how life changing it really was! There's so many amazing things that God did in my life and so many wonderful people that I met along the way that I'm so grateful for and could never have reached who I am today without this trip really pushing me to go beyond! I recommend it for anyone wanting adventure and wanting a real open understanding of God and his kingdom! Shout out to my awesome team of sisters who I couldn't live without!

I had such a raw, invaluable, and joy-filled time knowing Christ and making him known with friends from this organization. If you're heart is stirring to go somewhere, to do something bigger, more, deeper, check AIM out!

Had an awesome encounter trip! Wouldn't change it for the world. God showed up and showed out. I was accepted for who I am and was able to share the experience with people who genuinely love God and His people.

Trustworthy organization! This organization partners with the long-term vision of its ministry partners.
KevinApril 30 2019
They are a fantastic organization that balance voyages of self dicovery and discipleship. They find partners around the world that are doing amazing things in their communities and bring hands and hearts to them.
TaylorApril 24 2019
This is a company I would recommend to anyone no matter their season of life. I feel cared for, stretched, grown and empowered in so many different ways. They take the time to teach you new tools and give you the freedom to make them your own. They receive everyone in any walk with open arms and help guide them into the Father’s arms. They walk in grace and humility, always seeking to understand.

Adventures in Missions is a catalyst for change in the world. This organization knows what it means to bring Kingdom and be the Church. Their program the World Race has impacted me in the best ways. I would absolutely recommend doing a program with them!!
MicaelaApril 15 2019
Adventures in Missions is a raw organization. They mobilize so many to go to the nations and experience the move of God and it BLOWS my mind... only GOD. They don't claim to be perfect and are always pressing into growth, which includes owning mistakes and growing from them. They challenge the status-quo and are constantly pressing for the MORE that Jesus has promised us all. I highly recommend this organization to anyone.

My first encounter with Adventures in Missions was through the World Race. It was on this journey that I really took ownership of my relationship with God and the gifts He has given me to serve His Kingdom. The World Race was a truly empowering experience for me. It was through that experience I set the foundation for a missional lifestyle that went way beyond the 11 month World Race journey. Getting to be apart of empowering other people on my squad, as well as people among the nations, to walk in that lifestyle as well has significantly impacted the way I live my life today.

My time with the World Race was amazing. I've been on several other mission trips, but none like the race. It was an incredible experience, living and serving in local communities all around the world where I truly got to experience the culture and traditions of normal life alongside people from different countries while getting to see more of God and learning all about what it means to truly follow Jesus. I would say the World Race changed everything about my life for the better. If you love adventure, want to learn more about the Lord and experience His presence all over the world, I highly recommend!

I went on the world race with AIM. It's an awesome organization that equips and sends out missionaries all over the world to make an impact for the kingdom of God. Getting involved with Adventures in Missions will grow you as a person, encourage you to be more like Christ, and change your life in positive ways if you are open and willing to be uncomfortable.

One of the best mission organizations! They are NOT just in the business to make money. They genuinely care about each missionary, each staff member, and each individual's relationship with God that they encounter. AIM offers an array of different mission opportunities such as an 11-month trip around the world, a 2-month trip, local missions, and many more. This is an amazing organization to be a part of. As a current missionary on the World Race (the 11-month trip), I truly feel loved and cared for by everyone I encounter through AIM. This organization has not only helped me to grow closer to God, but has opened up so many doors for my future.
AIM: Adventures in Mission
If you think there might even be the slightest chance that God is calling you to mission work, I highly recommend reaching out to AIM. I promise you won't regret it.

Adventures in Missions trip the World Race was a great experience! I'd highly recommend if you're looking for a great organization to go on a missions trip with that you look here first. They have trips for all ages, and stages of life.
Jeremy C.May 3 2019
I did a trip with Adventures in 2011 and then again in 2013. I've had many friends go on trips with them up till today.
They're an amazing organization that leads with so much intentionality. The people there are actually passionate about what they do, I felt cared for while also being challenged in my faith and mission.
Love everything they do, such great experience with them!

I went on the World Race through Adventures in Missions in September of 2015 and it changed my life. It was one of the most difficult and rewarding things I've ever done. I would not be where I am today without the season I spent intentionally seeking the Father's heart through the wine-skin called the World Race. If you're considering going on any trip with Adventures in Missions, ask God. If He says "let's go," then you will not regret it. Take a leap of faith and go for it!

Adventures In Missions is an organization that is seeking how to best partner with God's mission of reaching the world with the Gospel of Christ. They offer opportunities for both long and short term engagements, and seek to do both sustainably and responsibly. To do this, they rely heavily on local ministries, churches, and partners to direct participants to the greatest need, where they might also be effective. While there is a large focus on global missions, there is also a great importance placed on discipleship. In the Great Commission, Jesus told His disciples to go and make more disciples, not just converts. Adventures In Missions takes this seriously and seeks to do both well, the going and the making. My observation is that they haven't always been perfect, but I have seen great humility when things have been pointed out that could be improved upon. I have great trust for the leadership I have seen in AIM and would feel comfortable entrusting anyone I know to serve under the umbrella of anything that Adventures In Missions offers. My own experiences with the World Race taught me so much about God, His mission, and His church, and I know that the stewardship of Adventures In Missions with what they have been given played a large role in that. I have high regard for this organization.
