The World Race is not your typical mission experience. For 11 months, participants abandon the luxuries of home and bid adieu to family and friends to join a squad of 50 to 60 fellow young adults and journey to 11 countries for the sole purpose of advancing the Kingdom of God. With only a 50-pound backpack, Racers live in 24/7 Christian community and learn what it really means to "consider everything a loss compared to the greatness of knowing Christ Jesus as Lord." Racers partner with local and longterm ministries overseas to serve as the hands and feet of Christ. During the year, Racers share the love of Jesus through orphan care, feeding the homeless, prostitute outreach, construction, praying over the lost, and door-to-door evangelism. God captivates Racers' hearts for his gospel as they see a world desperate for the hope and life that are in Christ Jesus.
