Experience the move of God happening in these unreached countries Expedition Route: Share God’s Love in the 10/40 Window

Experience God at work in the post-Christian nations of Eastern Europe, in the crush of humanity in India, and in the big-hearted village communities of Subsaharan Africa

The World Race has led over 5000+ people on this transformational journey.

Chris Scott

For the past 12 years, we have connected men and women just like yourself with ministry opportunities all around the world. Our coaches and mentors will walk with you every step of the way as you seek to know God deeper and serve the nations.

The World Race August 2020 Expedition Route empowers you to:

1. Grow with God

1. Grow with God

Ministry will be challenging and rewarding as you listen to God’s voice and share the Gospel with people who have never heard the name of Jesus. You will experience the incredible movement of God happening within the Chinese church and the explosive church planting movement happening in India.

2. Find Community

2. Find Community

As you journey through the intersection of Europe and Asia, and cross over the Himalayas and into Southeast Asia, you’ll discover what it means to live in Biblical community. You’ll be able to take these healthy communication strategies and problem-solving solutions to create a Gospel-centered community long after the Race is over.

3. Make a Difference

3. Make a Difference

Sharing the Gospel in the 10/40 window is not for the faint of heart. It’s the final frontier of God’s global mission to reconcile every nation to Himself. Yet this journey will be rewarding as you discover how to live out the Great Commission for wherever God calls you next.

From one end of the 10/40 window to the other, this route covers some of the most unreached places on earth. Whether to remote nomadic tribes, frontier mountain communities, or staggeringly unchurched megacities, bring the good news of the Gospel to those who may have yet to hear it.

The 10/40 window contains 97% of all remaining Unreached People Groups. These are the final frontiers of God’s global mission to reconcile people from every people group to Himself.

Start your journey in Istanbul, Europe’s largest and most evocative city, and venture across the plains of Turkey, a land rich with Biblical history but now almost devoid of Gospel presence. After you embark on one of the cargo ships criss-crossing the Caspian Sea, traverse the undiscovered expanse of Central Asia—home to wild terrain, ancient trade routes, and crumbling mausoleums. In Turkey and Central Asia, the church is small but eager and emboldened by their nomadic heritage to reach their countries with the Gospel.

At the eastern end of the Silk Road, millions upon millions of people live in cities outside the reach of the Gospel. Experience the unbelievable movement of God among the Chinese church and the explosive church planting movement happening in India. To get there, you’ll journey through the forgotten Kingdom of Tibet, and cross over the formidable majesty of the Himalayas.

Descend from the Himalayas into the heart of the Buddhist world through Myanmar and Thailand. Amidst ancient temples and the chants from monasteries, the freedom of the Good News has barely taken root. At the end of your route is Indonesia, the furthest edge of Southeast Asia. A country of nearly 18,000 islands makes up Islam’s easternmost outpost and an important Gospel frontier. By now you’ll have engaged some of the world’s most unreached communities with the Gospel. Filled with newfound purpose, what will God do through you next?

Process

Step 1: Apply

You’ll create a profile and complete a questionnaire application and then schedule a phone interview with our team so we can get to know you better. After that, we’ll let you know when you’ve been accepted! (A $200 deposit will confirm your spot.)

Step 2: Fundraise

Once you’ve confirmed your spot, we will pair you with an Admissions Advisor who will help you with planning, fundraising ideas, and all the logistical information you need to prepare.

Step 3: Train

Four-six weeks before your Race begins, you will spend 10 days at our campus in Georgia. This time will include missional and cultural training, discipleship, worship, and bonding with your teammates before you leave.

Step 4: Launch

After several days of additional training in Atlanta, you will fly out together as a squad and begin your ministry on the World Race.

Countries

Turkey

Turkey

Join our partners as they share the Gospel to a rapidly-developing nation largely unexposed to the living truth of Jesus. As you walk down the crowded streets of Istanbul, you will hear the echoing call to prayer punctuate the day in this predominantly Muslim country. Though it was once the destination of Paul’s missionary journeys, it remains largely untouched by the Gospel. Read More
Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan

Though this country is perched on the edge of post-Christian Europe, you will find very little Christian influence here. Instead, Azeris are predominantly Muslim. Join the work of strengthening the local church as it offers the Azeri people the hope of Jesus. Read More
Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan

Despite a deeply-rooted Islamic cultural identity, many Kazakhs are turning to follow Jesus. Come alongside this small, but fiercely bold community of believers as they reach out to their communities with the Gospel. Read More
Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan

Eager to shed the totalitarian mantle of the Soviet Rule, the progressive younger population of Kyrgyzstan is in search of Truth. Join our partners as they build relationships with these students who are following Jesus in droves! Read More
Mongolia

Mongolia

Experience the incredible hospitality of its nomadic people who live in isolated communities throughout the country. As you live among these families, you will see the rumblings of a Gospel revival through tent meetings springing up all around the countryside. It is now one of the most fiercely missional bodies of believers in the world. Join the movement of God across what can feel like the very ends of the earth. Read More
China

China

Even though China is a leading economic superpower, its rural villages teem with history and tradition. Its staggering population is now a mixture where Communism, Buddhism, and Chinese folk religions deeply intertwine. Yet you’ll discover a zealous Church that is exploding even amidst heavy political and social persecution. Read More
Nepal

Nepal

Many from around the world flock to Nepal seeking adventure and enlightenment, yet few here have discovered the true light of the Gospel. Hike across the imposing Himalayan mountains as you bring the Gospel truth to the furthest corners of the world, surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of God’s creation. Read More
India

India

India is quickly becoming the most populous country in the world. Yet so few here know the hope of Jesus—it is by far the world’s most unreached country. Alongside our partners, join the small, but rapidly-growing Gospel movement of thousands of churches being planted across this vibrant nation. Read More
Myanmar

Myanmar

Once closed off from the outside world and under severe military dictatorship, the doors to this enigmatic country have been opened. Join the small but growing local church in their endeavor to evangelize and disciple the Burmese majority, even amidst social persecution. Read More
Thailand

Thailand

This famously friendly nation is nicknamed the “Land of Smiles.” Yet Thailand’s glimmering cities and sandy beaches are marred by sex trafficking and sex tourism. Whether you are prayer-walking through the red-light district, ministering to tourists, playing with street kids, or teaching English to local Thai people, you will have the opportunity to reveal the truth of Jesus to a deeply unreached country. Read More
Indonesia

Indonesia

On this collection of nearly 18,000 islands, there are more Muslims than in any other country on the planet. Whether you are evangelizing alongside a local church or working with a team of Bible translators to bring the gift of God’s Word in the local language, join our partners who are passionate about revealing the truth of Jesus. Read More
