You’ve probably felt it. That nagging sense there must be more to this Christian life than you’re experiencing. It can’t just be saying a prayer, going to church on Sunday, and striving to be a good person, can it? The World Race offers you an incredible opportunity to make an impact on the world while also having your eyes opened to the reality of who God is and all that He has for you. So why go on the World Race?

Why Go?

GrowWithGod Image

EXPERIENCE GOD AND GROW IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM

We live in a noisy culture — our lives are so full that it’s hard to hear God’s voice or to prioritize relationship with Him on a daily basis. The Race provides you an opportunity to step away from it all and go deep with Him.
PrayingHands

LOVE PEOPLE AND SERVE THE WORLD’S NEEDS.

We partner with a variety of ministries that address the tangible needs of God’s children around the planet. And as you serve and love them, you will also learn from them. Both your life and theirs will never be the same!
Training

REACH A BROKEN AND HURTING WORLD THAT DOESN’T KNOW JESUS.

People are waiting for someone to show up and display the love of Jesus through actions and words. Jesus called us to “Go and make disciples of all nations” (Matt. 28:18). You can join us and our partners in living out that calling.
Mission

LEARN HOW TO COME TOGETHER WITH OTHER BELIEVERS AND BE THE CHURCH.

Not just a place you go on Sunday, but rather the family of God using gifts and talents to serve each other and spread His love everywhere they go. On the World Race, you’ll learn how to dive into authentic community and realize there’s more there than you ever imagined!
SupportTeam

DISCOVER YOUR GOD-GIVEN IDENTITY AS A BELOVED CHILD OF GOD WHO WAS CREATED WITH A PURPOSE.

When you settle some foundational questions with the Lord about why He created you and why He loves you, it changes everything. We’ve walked that journey with thousands of others, and we’d like to walk it with you too!

    YWAM Panama
    We like partnering with World Race because the team members come with energy, purpose, and intention to serve. World racers look past cultural differences and language barriers in order to reach people.

    Cesar Ausejo

    RAMAS Ministry, Peru
    I like partnering with the World Race because they are always ready to do whatever comes! Always willing to serve in not so ordinary ways. They don’t fit in the ‘typical mission team’ mold. Which is GREAT! Because that’s what brings freedom and blessing to our nation to see what a REAL Christian is!

    HOPE Ministries Zimbabwe

    Our World Race teams helped HOPE Ministries surpass their goal of planting 20 churches by 2020. Teams assisted with training and discipling young leaders as they prepared to plant churches throughout the region.

FAQs

Sounds pretty awesome, right? So what’s stopping you? Here are the most common concerns we hear:

I have to raise HOW MUCH MONEY?
Yeah, it sounds like a lot. We’ve led thousands of people on this journey of fundraising, and even though it’s hard work, it’s totally possible. We’ll guide you through the process! Don’t let this fear stop you from pursuing the Lord’s call on your life!
I’ve heard mission trips and evangelism can be harmful to the communities.
Yeah, we’ve heard that too! And sometimes, it can be true. We’re committed to doing mission trips well. In truth, both the long-term missionary and the short-term mission team bring a gift to the throne of our Lord. Long-term missionaries bring direction. Short-term missionaries bring velocity. Often our long-term partners are greatly encouraged by the infusion of life and resources into their ministry that short-term teams bring. It is the person with a long-term commitment to a community who plants a church and disciples its members. The relationships and vision they provide are essential. They are like the rudder on the ship, providing direction, steering the course. Short-term missionaries can be the wind in the sails which give velocity and thrust to the enterprise. They bring with them resources, a prayer base, and tremendous enthusiasm.
