ABOUT THE WORLD RACE


The World Race is a journey to 11 countries in 11 months to serve the least of these among real and raw community. It's a year of Matthew 10 in action: "Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give." The World Race currently serves in dozens of countries across the globe spanning from the tip of South America to the vast wild of Mongolia.

Mission

The Great Commission commands us as Christians to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” We send out hundreds of World Racers each year seeking to fulfill the great commission wherever they go.

Adventure

We send Racers to serve 11 countries in 11 months, all while living out of a backpack. Racers experience how others live as they are immersed into new cultures, forming lasting relationships with people who bring fresh perspective. Not to mention Racers get to see breathtaking natural and manmade wonders.

Discipleship

Jesus discipled his followers, and it is His model we desire to follow. Through mentors, coaches, and fellow racers, we disciple Racers while they serve and disciple others. After the World Race, we hope Racers are better trained to make a lasting impact in their local communities.
