[Daily Signal] Why I’m Going on the World Race

As a follower of Christ, it is my duty and my desire to bring relief and a message of hope and redemption to those in need, just as hope and redemption were offered to me in my lowest moments. When I return from this mission trip—whether back to D.C. to serve my country in the field of policy or to prepare for yet another adventure in ministry—the experiences I gain will change me for the better and equip me for the next chapter of service.

Discipleship is the key to what we are doing. We needed a lot of workers. Guess who came into the picture: a wild group called Adventures in Missions. They believe in discipleship. So the girls who come from Adventures come to disciple our girls! It’s about the body of Christ coming together to change the world.

I have had the pleasure of working with and being connected to Adventures in Missions for the last 15 years. The World Race is Christ Centered, Spirit filled, developmental and transformational. I highly recommend this amazing mission and ministry.

Since that first mission trip [with Adventures], around sixty members of our congregation found their lives changed dramatically as a result of participating on a mission trip to our sister church. Even those that have not yet made the trip participate in very many ways- donations, prayers, packing, collecting, promoting, etc. -creating a deep sense of living the Word.

God used the World Race to Change my Life forever. If you're tired of religion and want to meet the real Jesus, this journey will do just that.

Jordan Gillespie, 2013 S Squad

On the World Race, there were times I actually felt I was inside the Bible. It came into focus for me in Nepal when the Middle Eastern culture opened my eyes. I saw shepherds tending flocks, women at the well; we traveled by foot and villages turned out their sick. We encountered things I only read about in scripture and I realized, the story never ended—we are inside of it.

My son, Drew, went on the World Race Gap Year in 2014. It was an amazing, life changing experience for him. God taught him so much and I saw him grow in so many ways during his time overseas. It was not always easy, but it was so very good for him. God taught me much during those 9 months as well, especially about prayer and surrender. I learned that God's plans for Drew are WAY better than any plans that I may have dreamed up or hoped for all his life. I appreciate Adventures in Missions and what they are doing to expose young people to missions as a lifestyle. So thankful for Drew's connection with Adventures and WR Gap and for what God has taught both of us through it all.

I was very impressed with the leaders who spoke to the parents today. Their doctrine and their strategy are both solid. It gives us peace to know our daughter is in good hands. Adventures does things well.

We are now seven months into Amy’s eleven-month, eleven-country mission trip with The World Race. Before this trip started, I had a lot of concerns for her safety and health. In fact, when she first mentioned this, I started contacting medical evacuation establishments and security personnel and found a company that offered Ex-Navy Seals for evacuation in emergencies. I started heading in the direction of securing this plan to make sure she was well taken care of.

Later in the process, I found out what an incredible job Adventures in Missions does in risk assessment and management and realized they do a top notch job in managing safety for young adults going on The World Race. Their care of the racers has eliminated my concerns for Amy’s health and safety, and I am very appreciative of this.

After 6 years of working with World Racers, I have seen first-hand how Adventures and their staff serve with the highest level of integrity. As a businessman who works with hundreds of churches and ministries sending people on mission all around the world, Adventures sets the standard of excellence and striving to do the right thing in every situation, responding with a high degree of competency. As these young people go out to serve and learn, they have highly skilled, committed Christians guiding and setting the example of servant leadership. Adventures is the real deal and the young people come back more mature in their personal faith from the ministry experiences. I recommend Adventures without reservation to anyone seeking to make a difference through Christ-centered missions.
