ABOUT THE WORLD RACE

A life-changing mission trip where you will grow with God, serve with others, and make a difference!

Longing for more of God, but not sure what to do next?

We’ve been where you are, hungry for more, but not sure where to find it. It’s why we left our comfort zones and all we knew in exchange for a journey to discover what our hearts were longing to find.

We desperately wanted to live for Jesus but didn’t know what it looked like… can you relate?

Our Mission:
We awaken the church to radically follow Jesus and advance His Kingdom.

The World Race Staff

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.

    WORLD RACER

    ” The World Race ruined my life – in the best way. It was more than diving deep into international cultures – it was diving deep into Kingdom culture, which shook my perspective and I’ll never be the same. My experience on the race has changed the way I do business, hold relationships, seek the Lord, and live life as a whole. “

    ” The World Race showed me that I have a role to play in God’s Kingdom, but that it isn’t just about myself. His Kingdom is about us (the body) surrendering ourselves to him, so that he can use us to fulfill his plan. The plan to bring heaven here on earth. “

    ” The World Race is more than a missions trip. You will learn who you truly are in God and the truths you know will be deeper and more meaningful than ever. God can change your life, if you allow Him! “

    WORLD RACER

    ” The World Race helped me realize how big the world is, but more importantly God’s immense love for all of these people! It exposed me to the aches and injustices of a broken world while allowing me to see the body of Christ and the Church activated to meet those needs. Finally the World Race allowed me to understand the vision and calling God placed on my life and ushered me into faithfully pursuing what God placed on my heart. It completely changed the trajectory of my life moving forward from those 11 months! “
