Race Across Europe 2025 (8 weeks)

Race Across Europe serves as a platform for personal growth, deepening one's relationship with God, and discovering one's purpose in sharing the gospel and serving others. It's about embracing adventure, stepping out of comfort zones, and living out the gospel values of love, kindness, generosity, and humility in a global context. We want to see young people grow in their relationship with God and step out to have an impact in Europe.
