While I have found there to be 'seasons' that I have grown in intimacy with Christ, second to my conversion in my early 20's, my first engagement with orphan and vulnerable children in Vietnam produced one of the most significant periods of growth in my faith and obedience to Christ. It played a large role in my wife and me adding 3 adopted children to our 3 biological, starting a foster focused ministry in our hometown and eventually transitioning from a 20 year business career into occupational ministry. As I worked with vulnerable people all around the world it became clear to me that discipleship and the Body of Christ present the greatest solution to the challenges faced by people in communities that are struggling. In my roles at Adventures I get to wake up each day with the opportunity to push people towards intimacy with Christ as they journey to reach the world for Him all over the world. It is a privilege to get to journey with people as they discover how to live out a fully integrated, Christ dependent Kingdom Way of Life while reaching the world.

Hey. My name is Austin. My father is a big Dallas Cowboys fan and wanted to name me Dallas, but my mom was definitely not naming her child Dallas(thanks mom!). Since Austin is a city in Texas, it was negotiated to be my name. I love the Fall and spring. They are my favorite times of the year, also the best times of the year to go for a run(or motorcycle ride), which I love as well. I also love ultimate frisbee, tennis, volleyball, football and other sports activities. Also I have no shame and fully comfortable in saying that I love Channing Tatum. He's a good looking man who can dance. Just sayin'

Hey! I am Melinda Gute. I grew up just south of Chicago and the city is hands down one of my favorite places. I enthusiastically root for the Bears, Blackhawks, and Cubs. I was born and raised a pastor's kid and hearing stories of my grandparent's time as missionaries in Guatemala sparked my initial interest in missions. I serve as the Finance and Logistics Manager. Outside of work you can most often find me on the volleyball court coaching for Lanier Volleyball Club.

Stories From the Field

Want to know what it's really like to go on the World Race? Check out our most recent updates from World Racers about life on the field and how you could be a part of it!

Here's what you need to know

World Race: America
Ministry

During your journey, you will have the opportunity to serve alongside former World Racers and the incredible work they are doing. You’ll get to learn and grow from these alumni as well as spend time serving with other organizations like summer camps and homeless shelters.

Travel

You and your fellow Racers will road-trip around the country in World Race: America vans! Each team will have a van with a team appointed driver. Anyone over 21 can help with driving.

Itinerary

Over the course of 11 months, you will get to travel to about 30 states around the USA. You’ll serve in each location anywhere from a few days to a few weeks—depending on the needs of the project.

Lodging

Lodging will look different everywhere you go! You might sleep on a church floor, in the home of a World Race alumni, or in a tent at a campsite. And like traditional World Race routes, you’ll need to bring a sleeping pad, sleeping bag, and tent.

Alumni

This route is open to both Gap Year and World Race alumni, ranging between the ages of 18-35.

Training

World Race: America will have a 10-day training camp in October at Adventures in Missions along with all the other World Race squads launching in January 2021.
