Each of the countries where Adventures has started a base is unique, so our plan for bringing Jesus into that local context must be tailored to it. "The bases give us a chance to come alongside God’s movement and play a role in helping the local body expand their reach," says Adventures' President, Bob Mudd.

We define generational discipleship as when an elder listens and speaks life into someone who wants to pursue a similar path as them. Discipleship is the process of pointing people to Jesus and reliance on the Holy Spirit; it is woven within every aspect of a Kingdom lifestyle and is vital for both the upcoming generations and the older generations of the Church.

What does it take for a person to feel loved? Do our words “I love you” and “You are loved” hold enough influence to actually convince a person of their lovability?
When we look at scripture (1 John 4:7-8, Luke 6:35, 1 Corinthians 13:13) we find that love is our greatest tool to build the Kingdom of God. Within the beautifully unique Body of Christ there are countless ways for people to give and receive love.
In today’s society, we often compare our value to that of those in power or celebrity. We see the perceived perfection of lives around us and so easily discount our own worth. We are warned of this is, consider Romans 12:2 – “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
As humans we ask if we are enough. Are we good enough? Are we smart enough? Do we have enough?
Since 1989, Adventures in Missions has mobilized over 115,000 people on mission trips around the world. Through various short and long-term programs, we have dedicated our lives to helping people from all walks of life discover the world, who Jesus is, and what Jesus has called them to: to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28) and be His witness to the ends of the earth (Acts 1).
