This is not a mission trip.
This is a ministry training program
because following Jesus is a lifelong mission.

VALUES

heart

Biblical Community

Learning to live and work together as the body of Christ, with both other Journeyers and nationals.


Context-Specific Education

Courses in language and culture are taught throughout the year by both WorldVenture missionaries and national pastors.


Freedom to Explore

Journeyers are given the freedom to explore different areas of ministry and use their skills and gifts to discover what God has specifically made them for.

Building Relationships

Relationships are foundational for effective ministry, and often you cannot build significant relationships until you put in the effort, and more importantly, the time.


Direction and Mentoring

Each Journey Corps location is led by WorldVenture missionaries who have lived and worked cross-culturally for decades.


Incarnational Ministry

Journeyers are challenged to learn from and adapt to another culture, in order to see the world through the eyes of that culture and live out the gospel in that specific location.
