Why we exist

Youth in today’s church are struggling to connect their faith to the rest of their lives and to understand their identity and purpose in Christ. As a result, they are leaving the church during their crucial young adult years.

Touch the World provides training and mission trips focused on poverty, culture, and mission with the intention of equipping youth for their everyday context. 

As youth expand their worldview and respond to God’s calling, they take ownership of their faith and become lifelong disciples of Christ.

Mission is a lifestyle.

Sharing the gospel in word and deed isn’t just for pastors or vocational missionaries. Our training equips youth to engage with God and the world around them in culturally relevant and effective ways.

Missions experts with 30+ years experience.

We’ve learned a lot over the years about the right and wrong ways to serve and we know firsthand how valuable missions training is.

Training makes the difference.

Touch the World training provides a clearer understanding and appreciation for the things that we have, while awakening a desire to do missions locally and around the world. The missions training experience gives youth a spiritual experience that empowers and affirms their identity in Christ and the calling we all have to fulfill The Great Commission.

Youth Leader, Cityline Church

Touch the World did not only deepen my understanding of missions, but of ministry all together.

Every single second, minute, hour, and day was incredible and life changing for me and my team as we participated in the Touch the World training.

Minister Reggie Alvarez

Youth Leader, Christian Cultural Center

If you’ve engaged fully in Touch the World training— and you’ve engaged in culture, poverty, evangelism, identity, God— then you can no longer just walk down the street and look at people the same. You may choose to, but you cannot unknow what you’ve learned.
