World Race Semesters

Is there a longing in your spirit for more than the path set before you? If you are a college student ages 18-22, take the leap and experience a different kind of classroom for a semester-– a chance to share your faith and to better learn how to listen and respond to the voice of God. Travel on a 1-3 month missions trip and experience first hand what it means to follow Jesus like the early disciples did.

Bring the Kingdom of God to those in need while living in real and raw community. Serve alongside local ministry partners in activities ranging from service projects to boldly sharing the Gospel and praying for those you meet.

Imagine having the time each day to pray, explore what the Bible says about how to live a life fully committed to Jesus, and having experienced Christian leaders empowering you to live it out in cities and villages around the world!

This is a chance for you to uncover the truth about who God is and the gifts He's given you to be the light in the darkness. Go deeper with God than ever before by intentionally dedicating a Semester to live out Jesus’ prayer, "Your Kingdom come.”

Why go on World Race: Semesters?
It's important to bring God to the center of your life while making big decisions. Taking an intentional semester off from school can actually propel you into making the most of your college experience, or whatever you may decide to do.

We've seen the fruit of students making wise decisions and doing great things, in college and afterwards, because they took a season to seek after God's heart while serving His people.

World Race: Semesters gives you a chance to discover what passions, gifts, and talents God has given you to pursue for the Kingdom of God.

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.” You will be among the hundreds of World Racers each year seeking to fulfill the great commission wherever they go.
You will serve for 1-3 months, experience how others live as you are immersed into new cultures and form lasting relationships with people who bring a fresh perspective. Not to mention as a Racer you get to see breathtaking natural and manmade wonders.

Jesus discipled His followers, and it is His model we desire to follow. Through mentors, coaches, and fellow Racers, we disciple you while you serve and disciple others. After the World Race, we hope you are better trained to make a lasting impact in your local community.
"My favorite part of my Race is what God did in my heart, He burst out of the small box I had put Him in and showed me how big He is and showed me His loving, compassionate, bold, just, and merciful character."
— Katie Knoblauch
"God has taken me to incredible places. I've been able to see and experience brokenness. I've noticed that heaven is all around us, not necessarily just in the beauty of His creation, but also the people."
— Diego Galvão
