At our core, XMA is about experiential missions – about helping American Christians obey God’s desire for us to take the Gospel to all nations. As Jesus tells us in John 15:16, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you. I appointed you that you should go out and produce fruit…” You have heard God’s call and we can help you answer that call. Our volunteers share the love of Jesus with overlooked people in remote locations around our world and help with human needs such as medical, dental, clean water, construction, educational and other basic needs. Our lives have been changed for the better by what Christ did for us. We now want to help others with their physical needs but more importantly to show them how they can have lasting peace in their lives. God has put within each of us a desire for excitement, a need to rise above the mere everyday existence, a passion for adventure. We might suppress the burning urgency of this passion so that all that is left is a small glowing ember. Or we may try to satisfy this need with vicarious, second hand adventure such as Facebook and YouTube. But that God-given desire is still there. It is still part of our basic make up. It’s part of our DNA. God has also given each of us a purpose. We are here for more than to just get all we can get. Each of us have God-given talents and skills – evangelism, medical, teaching, prayer, listening and caring. Our purpose and true satisfaction is found in using our unique gifts to help others, especially those who are not able to help themselves, those trapped in systems of spiritual darkness, poverty, and injustice.. XMA’s calling is to combine these two often suppressed life needs into an Adventure with a Purpose. On an extreme missionary adventure you’ll get all of the adventure you want but it’s not just adventure for adventures sake. It’s an adventure with a purpose. It could be preaching or showing an evangelistic film to the unreached, showing love to abandoned children in a small village orphanage in Honduras, a medical/dental team working in villages along an Amazon tributary in the Peruvian jungle, giving educational assistance to a pastor or teacher in a remote village in the mountains of Asia, or maybe helping rural Central Americans improve their standard of living with farm assistance projects. Most importantly, through all of these and other activities, showing others how Jesus can give purpose, peace and meaning to their lives.

Just finished my first trip with XMA and I am one satisfied customer! Randy White had contacts throughout the region and every detail was planned. Highly recommend XMA!
Going on a mission trip guided by XMA missionaries is one of the single greatest experiences of my life. God is truly at work in this organization.
Having gone on two mission trips with XMA in 2015, I was able to get to know the hearts of both the XMA staff members and the people of Honduras. Both impacted me greatly. What an incredible organization full of people truly pursuing God's kingdom on earth. Thank you XMA for changing my perspective, my priorities, and my life!
