Who am I? Who is God?
What am I supposed to do about it?
REACH is a year-long missions program that provides a space for 18-30 year olds to explore life’s big questions and begin to live them out. Along the way, participants will be stretched, mentored, discipled, and given the tools to pursue a life of devotion to God in whatever setting they find themselves.
What’s it like?
REACH begins with three months of discipleship and missions training in Columbus, Ohio, followed by six months of cross-cultural outreach exciting locations around the world. The last three months include personal mentoring and local ministry in the participant’s home area.
During REACH God gave me a hunger for Him that I haven’t experienced in a while. It was like a desperate desire for God to come and show me His love so that I could more easily love those around me.DB – Team Eurasia

Because of the continued impact of COVID-19 and the uncertainty of the future travel abroad, there is potential for our 2021-2022 outreaches to be within the U.S. We are currently solidifying the details and will post more information in the future.
While overseas outreach locations have been a major component of REACH since it began, we know that God will use both local and overseas outreaches to grow participants as they serve and explore what it means to pursue Jesus in the world.
