Because each of the countries where Adventures has started a base is unique, our plan for bringing Jesus into that local context must be tailored to it.

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.

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).
This video offers great insight into the heart of the World Race. Seth Powell is our Risk Management Coordinator for all our World Race trips, and here he sheds some light on some of the greatest concerns we hear from people interested in our programs.
