You will spend one month on mission in Costa Rica serving the beach-side community of Jaco with our ministry partner Ocean’s Edge. This month will be focused on outreach to the surfing community and sharing the Gospel through various programs on the beach. You will get to lead children’s programs and surf clubs while also helping with improvement projects and painting murals on their property. You will spend a lot of time in prayer each day as you serve and work to reach the community for Christ. This will be a fruitful and fun month in Costa Rica as you grow in your faith and embrace the slow “pura vida” lifestyle. *Please note this ministry partner is subject to change.
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.
