So, we aim to do just that by training & launching college students, young adults, married couples, and families who will live immersed as a team among these people groups, identifying people of peace, gathering them around the Word of God in Discovery Bible Studies where sharing Christ & making disciples can happen. As people come to faith in Jesus, new believers are baptized, new leaders are trained, and new churches are born with the DNA to replicate & multiply this process throughout their own people group.
If God is calling you to serve full-time cross-culturally, then now is your time! For half the cost of most organizations, you can serve full-time with us.

THINGS TO NOTE FOR MARRIED COUPLES AND FAMILIES WHO APPLY TO SERVE WITH TREK-X…
We are a training and launching organization who’s purpose is to launch missional believers to share Christ and make disciples among the unreached. Our mission is to trek, train & launch people overseas. If your heart is for unreached nations and people groups to hear the Gospel, then you are who we are looking to train. Please know that we are not a refugee organization or a place to serve among internationals on the side, so if you have no desire to be launched overseas, please do not apply.
3 Year Terms
1 year in a US HUB / 2 years overseas / Renewable 3-year terms
Your Area Director has the authority to extend your US training time on a case by case basis as needed. (marriage, college, seminary, etc)
Every Field Rep begins their training in a US Training HUB.
We are a TRAINING and LAUNCHING organization with HUBs in Nashville, Dallas, and soon to be St. Louis. These training Hubs are located among the refugee/immigrant populations in each city which comprise hundreds of language groups from the 10/40 window. These ethnically dense & religiously diverse areas not only need the Gospel, but they are ideal cross-cultural locations to train and learn best ministry practices in preparation for living overseas.
Each Hub is also led by veteran missions leaders who will use their expertise and experience in international church planting to train you and your team in missional living and disciple-making that results in church planting. As a part of your training, you will learn how to identify people of peace, gather them around the Word, share Christ, make disciples, and train leaders to plant the church in any setting. Both Field Reps and Gap Year students train & launch from our US HUBs.

Similar to 90% of all missionaries around the world from a variety of missions organizations, as a Field Rep you will need to raise 100% of your support to cover all your budget, which will include living expenses, travel, ministry, and monthly admin fee.
Once you apply and are accepted as a Field Rep, you will need to read a book called “The God Ask” by Steve Shadrach. If you read this book and do what it says, you’ll have no problem getting fully funded to begin your missions journey with us. Once accepted, you will also be entered into our online donation system where you can begin sending your donors to give toward your ministry right away. As a 501(c) non-profit organization, all donations are tax-deductible according to current IRS law for all your donors.
Depending on whether you are single, married, or have a family, you will need to determine your budget, and begin raising funds. No one is allowed to begin their ministry with us until they are fully funded, which means having enough monthly recurring donations coming in to support your pre-aproved budget. This insures you will have laser focus on building your support team around you as soon as possible without the frustration of trying to do ministry and fundraise simultaneously.
Here are some average recommended monthly amounts to raise. Based on your situation and the location you will serve overseas, these amounts can be adjusted to cover all your needs and the cost of living in that location.
