So when one of our squad members said, “You are kind of a mystery to our squad,” I thought, OK, I should explain what Adventures In Missions does. So here’s a brief overview.

Well, first of all, what it does now is not what we’ve always done. We started small, in our garage, and in a place of pain in our lives. Here’s the story.
We make missions personal. We connect the body of Christ to the needs of the world. We use missions as a tool to disciple young people. Here is a list of our ministries.
 
90,000 participants since 1989 going on 7-10 day mission trips in the U.S. and internationally
 
500 racers in 2011 going around the world for a year, living missionally
 
400 participants going on 2-9 month projects around the world
5000 orphans we feed and care for in Africa

Some people are impressed by all this, but it’s God’s work – we’re just stewards. I’m hoping the best is yet to come. We’ve got an amazing team of staff people and their leaders are world class. We’re committed to following Jesus’ example, discipling people one at a time, helping them to understand who God made them to be and how they fit in his kingdom.
