During your time in southern Ghana, you will spend one beautiful and fruitful month serving with our ministry partner City of Refuge in the Doryumu. City of Refuge works with children who have been orphaned, abandoned, trafficked, or are vulnerable to these things. The children live in homes with house parents or house deans and receive education daily at the on-campus school, Faith Roots International Academy. City of Refuge also works with single women vulnerable to trafficking their children and teaches them skills to start their own businesses. The women live on-campus and learn to sew in the ministry’s workshop. You will have the opportunity to assist with all of these programs and also work on the campus’ aquaponics system and farm sustainability projects. While serving in Ghana, you will have many opportunities to build relationships and share the hope of the Gospel.
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.
