Why join Ultra?
There is something inside of all of us, longing to know that we belong and have something of value to offer others. We desire to be fully known and fully loved. But life is messy - there is pain and unanswered questions. Sometimes your relationship with God is dry and it feels like you’re just going through the motions. You start to wonder, does my life have purpose? Where is God in the middle of it all? Is this all there is to life? There’s more and you want it.
Ultra is a six-month journey of discovering this “more.” Through studies, mentoring, and hands-on experience, you and your team will learn to venture beyond the norm in life and relationships.
You Can Make a Difference.
Live with purpose as the woman God has created you to be
Care for and speak truth into the lives of people
Use your story and gifts to bring His life to those searching for answers to their questions
Encourage and work alongside long term workers and believers in Asia
Impact Charge teams by casting vision for Southeast Asia, and challenge them to a closer walk with God
You Can Expect
On Ultra, you will journey through your own heart while being a part of advancing God's kingdom in Southeast Asia. You, along with your team, will travel to various countries and experience new cultures as you serve and encourage longterm missionaries, and live intentionally as a witness for Him wherever you go.
Applying for Ultra
Our online application process will walk you through all the necessary steps for getting to Asia. Make an account, choose your team, and complete the rest of the application. Please contact us if you have any questions throughout the process.
Each Ultra team has six available spots, but actual team sizes can vary by term. We accept and process applications on a first-come, first-serve basis. You’ll be introduced to the rest of your Ultra team via e-mail a few weeks before you depart for Asia.
You can experience life change with your team leaders as they mentor and push you to reach your God-given potential. You will be given a safe place within your team to wrestle with deep questions and enlarge your perspective of God, yourself, and the world.
We as team leaders, live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. While we will not always travel with you, we will make travel arrangements for your team and connect you with long term workers and believers here in Asia.
After orientation in Asia, you will go on a trip with your team leaders called Odyssey. On this trip, we do the best we can to prepare you for your time in Asia. This includes extended time with God, learning how to work with a team, and working through your own story.
Orientation & Debriefing
Immediately after you arrive in Asia, you will spend 3 days in orientation to gain an understanding of GTO's work in Southeast Asia. During this time there will be some missions training, team development activities, and time to get aquainted with your team.
At the end of your term, you will spend 3 days in debriefing to help you process your experience and prepare for integration back into North America. We require that you return home directly after your time of debriefing is completed.
The total cost of your time on Ultra will vary depending on the countries you visit, and the amount you choose to spend on living costs. Expenses have ranged from $7,000-10,000. After paying the registration fees and your flight to Asia via the registration system, you'll pay our Asia office for trips and expenses as you incur them.
