You will spend a summer on mission in eastern Europe with one month in Romania and one month in Serbia. Your summer will be focused on evangelism and relational ministry. Month one will kick off in Draganesti-Olt, Romania with our church planting and evangelism ministry partner, Hope Church. This month your focus will be outreach to the community and sharing the Gospel. You will take part in street evangelism while passing out Bibles and eyeglasses.
In month two, you will travel south to Serbia to spend the rest of your summer serving with our partner Christian Fellowship of Sombor. You will spend a lot of time building relationships and discipling locals by spending time with them in coffee shops and on walks around town. You will also get to help put on events for the locals so that they can fellowship together and continue learning more about Jesus! Your summer will be busy and incredibly rewarding as you work each day to share the love of God and help people find their identity in Christ.
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.
