Every time I'm reminded of the need for the gospel to go to peoples that are born, live & die without hearing it in their own language and culture my heart is pounding and aching.  For now, God has clearly kept my wife and I from going.  So my vision is to send as many students from the campuses DiscipleMakers ministers at.  The Traveling Team has been one of the most effective means to grab the hearts of students, giving them a vision bigger than themselves, and stirring some to go.

I can't think of a better group of people to mobilize my students than The Traveling Team. If you want your students to understand God's heart for the world, and how students can be a part of His mission, then have The Traveling Team come serve you. I encourage all my campus leaders to have them come share how God is working in the lives of young people around the world in fulfilling the Great Commission. You're missing out if you don't have them come challenge your students.

I love The Traveling Team!  Their passion for connecting every Christ-following university student with their unique role in Global Mission is infectious and strategic.  Too many laborers are on the sideline.  The Traveling Team is challenging them to get in the game as Givers and Goers.  Praise God!

Staff with Cru love having The Traveling Team come to their campuses. The vision and heart for the world are communicated with such Biblical clarity, power and compassion that students walk away thinking about their role in God's global purposes more than ever. TTT gives our local movements a huge boost by reinforcing what we want to inflame their hearts with and offering practical direction to help them take the next step. I am convinced that the Lord has raised up The Traveling Team at this time in history uniquely to cast the vision, educate and help thrust out the laborers to finally finish the Great Commission in this generation. We eagerly partner with them. No other ministry I know casts the vision, motivates and challenges students better than TTT. Really!

The Traveling Team has been and continues to be the most effective communicator of God’s heart for the peoples of the world to the collegiate population. Their model of excellence in presentation, cooperation, and servant leadership has effectively served the vision of campus ministries across the United States in a significant manner. Only in heaven will we truly know the depth of global impact TTT has made for the Kingdom of God.

INSPIRING and ENGAGING... The Traveling Team is not a self-promoting ministry, as they share the need to reach all the nations for Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.  They promote the need for missions and various mission organizations to reach our world with the gospel; showing any person how they can use their giftedness to serve on a mission.  They are "eye-openers" for people to respond to the Great Commission, which is the duty of all believers.

Since it’s inception, I have watched God use The Traveling Team ministry on over a thousand campuses and in tens of thousands of student’s lives. Today, the legacy and influence of The Traveling Team’s world vision extends to virtually every country on the planet. Only eternity will reveal the ultimate impact Todd Ahrend, Claude Hickman, and their sacrificial teams of world changers have made. The body of Christ will forever be indebted.
