Adventures in Missions is an interdenominational missions organization that focuses on discipleship.

We emphasize prayer and relationships in our work amongst the poor. Since we were established in 1989, we have taken over 100,000 people into the mission field, some for as short as a week and others for as long as a year or longer. In several places around the world we minister year-round to "the least of these." What began as a dream in Seth Barnes’ garage has morphed into a global movement. Annually, Adventures in Missions sends over 6,000 adults, students, and families on mission trips to more than 70 locations on several continents, with their trips ranging from a few days to a few years. We believe that by giving people the opportunity to care for orphans, bring hope to the hopeless, and pray for the sick, lives are transformed. We seek to disciple as Jesus did; our vision is that God would use us to raise up a generation of radically committed disciples of Jesus Christ.

The World Race is a mission trip to 11 countries in 11 months. But it’s not just a mission trip; it is an adventure of a lifetime. The World Race’s mission is simple: bring kingdom. We do that by feeding the hungry, healing the sick, raising the dead, cleansing the unclean, and loving the outcast. The World Race challenges participants to have a life-changing experience that affects how they live their lives, serve others, relate to God, and bring the kingdom to earth — today. The first World Race began in 2006 with a group of 22 people who set out on the journey of a lifetime. Making their way through the world on faith, they knocked on doors, slept in streets, and depended on God. Since that first trip, the World Race has grown and expanded. In 2011, we sent out our 1,000th Racer and expect to send thousands more. Each group of Racers — called a “squad” — has a unique country route that spans across the globe. Racers join intentional communities and partner with pre-existing ministries and missionaries around the world. There is a generation of radicals whose heartbeat is to see a changed world. This generation is actively rising to the challenge of seeing the world transformed through tangible expressions of God's love. World Racers are seeing that change and experiencing it for themselves. Racers visit ancient ruins, hike up volcanoes, swim under waterfalls, and experience the vastness of God’s creation. They trade in marketplaces, befriend people caught in modern-day slavery, and strengthen local church bodies around the world. The World Race is a sacrifice. Racers dedicate eleven months to relying on God to guide their steps and lead them into situations they would never experience any other way. Racers find their faith growing strong as they let go of the things of this world and discover a deeper meaning and purpose for their lives.
