Go and share God’s story. This trip has a photo/video focus and is perfect for anyone with a desire to use media to glorify God.Your month in Medellin, Colombia will be both challenging and stretching as you serve alongside our ministry partner Ciudad Refugio and grow as both a storyteller and a disciple of Jesus Christ.
This holistic ministry focuses on restoring individuals and communities.In addition to storytelling you’ll have opportunities to serve with recovery programs for people struggling with drug addiction, lead outreach for people experiencing homelessness, and assist with feeding programs.
Your main project as a team will be capturing short testimonial videos of former addicts who have found wholeness in Jesus through the ministry of Ciudad Refuigo. Through this work you will expand this ministry’s ability to articulate what God is doing and expand their reach to more people.
You will also be required to pick two additional, personal projects to work on during the month, either alone or in groups, that you will gift to the ministry. Potential projects could include:
Event recap video
Promo video for another ministry project
Family photo shoots for locals + print/gift photos
Code their website to support spanish
So much more, your ideas are welcome here
This will be a very busy month filled with opportunities to grow in your faith, step outside your comfort zone, and share the life-changing love of Christ with this community and the world
No specific experience is required to participate in this trip, but you will be required to provide your own camera, tripod, laptop, external harddrive, and editing software. We will provide lighting equipment, microphones, and leaders trained in missional storytelling.
How We Support You
A large part of this journey is growing in your walk with Christ. We desire to model the way Jesus discipled his followers. Mentors, coaches, and fellow Racers will disciple you, while you serve, love, and disciple others.
You’ll spend the first few days of your trip at a training camp here at World Race headquarters in North Georgia.
You’ll get to experience raw Christian community as you travel, serve, and encourage each other. Once you officially join the Race, you will be invited to a private Facebook group to begin getting to know your squad.
We’ll provide coaching, video tutorials, scripts, and ideas for fundraising plus a free fundraising course and a blog so you can tell your story and accept donations. We also have structured deadlines to help you reach your goal.
Our commitment to risk management includes internal and external teams who constantly monitor and manage risk and create contingency plans as needed.
Our amazing Parent Ministry provides resources and communication so your parents feel supported and informed while you’re on the field.
