The Low Down on World Race Training

August 12, 2022
What is Training? World Race training camp is an intense (or in-tents, as it were) 2 week experience where you, your teammates, and your entire launch window meet in Georgia to connect deeply with the Lord and each other before flying to your first country. During your two weeks at Adventures, you will receive training and activation in how you can live in greater intimacy with God, deeper connection with your community, and a life dedicated to God’s mission for His people. Through teaching, prayer, scenarios, and relationship building, you will step out of fear and shame and into more relationship with the Father. You’ll also receive training on how to partner with God to establish His Kingdom on Earth. It’s designed to be challenging because we want to prepare you …

Semesters Commitment   By participating in Semesters, I commit to the following expectations and understand that I will be held accountable to them by my leadership team:   Kingdom mindset. As a result of my relationship with Jesus, I commit to spreading the kingdom of God with my words and actions. As I go, I will proclaim this message: “The kingdom of heaven has come near.

The Low Down on Training Camp

May 23, 2022
Your bags are packed. (Or you’ve at least thought about packing a bag. . . right?)  You’re super pumped. (Or nervous or antsy . . . that’s okay. . . so is everyone else!) You’re busy writing thank you notes to all your supporters. (Ahem.  You know your Aunt Lina is dying to hear from you.)   There is no doubt you’re headed out on the adventure of a lifetime!    So let’s talk about this thing called training camp.  (Yikes! Maybe not that kind of training camp.)   Camp begins when you arrive at our main office in Gainesville, Georgia on the first day of your trip and lasts until you fly to your destination. You will first start out in Atlanta at Sonesta Atlanta Airport North on the 27th. The…

Spending Money on Your Trip!

April 19, 2022
So you’ve been support raising the cost of your trip, but what about paying for your coffee addiction overseas? That’s where spending money comes into play! All of your needs will be paid for from your trip cost, but if you want to eat out with your team, snuggle an elephant, hike a volcano…you’re going to need some extra dollars!  We suggest bringing $100 – $200 per month depending on how much you would like to spend on souvenirs, gifts, or anything extra you may like to purchase while on the field! This is just a ballpark number we’ve gotten from previous participants; you may want to bring more or less. You know your spending habits best. Pray about it, do some research into fun things you could do in the countries you’ll be visiting, and then plan acc…

Trip FAQs

March 9, 2022
All your questions answered…  (Well, kind of. You guys have lots of questions!)   Team Leaders: You will have 1 or 2 team leaders (depending on the size of your team – if your team is 10+ you will likely have 2 leaders). Team leaders are Adventures alumni who have been on World Race trips as a participant. In order to lead they must fill out an application, submit references, and go through a few interview rounds. They range in age from 20s to 30s. Their role is to disciple you, pour into you, love you, and lead you! (In addition to handling all the logistics and taking you to the hospital if you get sick…aka the fun stuff!) They have all the answers to life’s problems. NOT. They won’t always get it right – they are human, they will make mistakes. We tr…
