Next you will continue your journey south to Ecuador. Though this is one of the smallest countries in South America, its landscape includes highlands, beaches, the Amazon and the Galapagos Islands. You will find the people to be both very proud and very friendly and welcoming. Most Racers work with our long-standing partners who minister to at-risk children living and working on the streets, special need hospitals and elderly homes.
Many Racers also work a lot with church planting and on college campuses.
The application includes creating a profile and completing a questionnaire. It should take a little under an hour to complete.
After you complete and submit your application you will get the opportunity to schedule a phone interview with our team.
Once you are accepted, a $200 deposit will confirm your spot on the trip.
Once you are committed, you’ll be paired with an Admissions Advisor who will help you with planning, fundraising ideas and all the logistical information you need to prepare.
Four-six weeks before your Race begins, you will spend 10 days at our campus in Georgia. This time will include missional and cultural training, discipleship, worship, and bonding with your teammates before you leave.
After several days of additional training in Atlanta, you will fly out together as a squad and begin your ministry on the World Race.
A large part of this journey is growing in your walk with Christ. We desire to model the way Jesus discipled his followers. Mentors, coaches, and fellow Racers will disciple you, while you serve, love, and disciple others.
Six to eight weeks before your launch date, you’ll attend a 10-day intensive training at our headquarters here in North Georgia.
You’ll get to experience raw Christian community as you travel, serve, and encourage each other. Once you officially join the Race, you will be invited to a private Facebook group to begin getting to know your squad.
We’ll provide coaching, video tutorials, scripts, and ideas for fundraising plus a free fundraising course and a blog so you can tell your story and accept donations. We also have structured deadlines to help you reach your goal.
Our commitment to risk management includes internal and external teams who constantly monitor and manage risk and create contingency plans as needed.
Our amazing Parent Ministry provides resources and communication so your parents feel supported and informed while you’re on the field.
