The World Race

Launching people into dynamic life-changing missions

The world race is a game changing mission trip that help young adults find a deeper sense of God’s calling on their life as they serve around the world. Beyond the service and spiritual development, these trips also build into skills like communication, accounting, campaigning, labor, and perseverance. This is the perfect gap year to help young adults become focused servant-leaders, agents of change and hope before entering college or the workforce.

Long-term Mission

Missionaries serving on extended missions around the world

The best way to speak into the unique and beautiful cultures around the world is to be embedded in them, learning from them over a long period of time. Through daily living, listening to challenges, and seeing struggles of life of foreign nationals, missionaries have the needed context to respectfully introduce Christ’s way of life. They walk daily with people, not just blindly proselytizing and leaving. Focusing instead on serving, helping, developing, training, and listening so people can flourish and transform brokenness into hope.
