How do trips work at Touch the World?

In order to set up a short-term mission trip to any of our host locations, we require your team's participation in our 3-Day Missions Training Retreat.

Touch the World is a youth-focused missions organization specializing in training for short-term teams. We equip youth with an understanding of identity, culture, and mission that prepares them to live as sent disciples of Jesus in their everyday lives.

If your group is interested in training and trips, we'd love to connect with you! If you'd like to serve with one of our ministry partners, we'll help you decide which host location is the best fit for your group. To get started, submit an interest form!
