In an age where social media and overcommitted schedules seem to run the lives of our teenagers, do you find yourself wondering how to engage your students in a personal relationship?  How to move them from apathy to energy? Touch the World understands that youth pastors and leaders seem to have an endless “To-Do” list of things that should have been done yesterday.  Your plate is full with sermon preparations, program planning, and meetings, yet your heart yearns to answer the question, how do I provide my youth with catalytic faith experiences that will inspire a lifetime of missional living?

The ultimate goal of TTW is to actively engage students in service, culture, and poverty to build their belonging, competence, and worth in the Body of Christ.  Once they are exposed to a global perspective that results in a widened worldview, the students are encouraged to step into leadership roles in local ministries and churches back home where they can be further discipled.  TTW’s hope for your students is that they would form their identity in Christ, claim ownership of their faith, and join a movement of young people committed to living the mission of God everyday, everywhere.

TTW has been partnering with youth pastors and leaders to provide local and global missional opportunities for students for more than 20 years. We provide a safe, turn-key operation that includes downloadable curriculum, training before, during, and after trips, systems for fundraising, and we take on all the administrative tasks associated with putting a missions trip together so that you have time to do what really matters…pour into the lives of your students.

Consider joining one of our scheduled teams or create your own custom trip!

We specialize in training pre-trip to fully prepare individuals and teams for ministry in culturally relevant and effective ways. Not only do we believe in preparing teams for service, we focus on building disciples to live out the mission of God everyday, everywhere. TTW also fully equips team leaders to guide and mentor their team through this life-changing experience.


TTW carefully chooses mission locations based upon like-minded ministry philosophy and through long-term partnership. On location, we find that the greatest transformation comes through exposure to the elements of service, culture and poverty. Utilizing team devotionals and curriculum on site, intentional discussion helps facilitate increased growth and transformation in each team member.


We focus on extensive debriefing on-location and at the end of the trip to help equip team members to return home and continue to live a life of mission. TTW also provides opportunities for team members to take their passion for missions to a deeper level through our Venture Program internship or through partnership with local ministries for service opportunities throughout the year in your own neighborhood.
