Wonder Voyage Director: A Definition
Designing, planning, and implementing an entire mission trip or pilgrimage can be daunting, especially when you’re the one leading a group. Having someone to guide you through the process can make all the difference. This is where Wonder Voyage directors excel.
We are not tour guides. We are cultural guides.
Although we are in charge of the itinerary as a tour guide might be, Wonder Voyage directors seek to immerse each participant into the journey physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Do we guide you through historical landmarks? Yes. Do we give you information about your location? Of course! But our reach goes beyond basic tourism and moves into servanthood. We do not view this role as a job but as our ministry. Where as tour guides often only engage you at historical monuments, Wonder Voyage directors join in the journey with you.
We are time-proven experts.
Wonder Voyage directors are unmatched when it comes to our expertise. Your director will know your location backwards and forwards and will be able to answer almost any question you have about the voyage experience. Each director has a special knack for adapting well to change and can quickly plan around unforeseen circumstances so that your trip continues smoothly. We juggle the logistics of travel so you can relax and immerse yourself in the adventure.
We have an ultimate objective.
We have an innate desire to experience wonder and we want to pass this onto you. Our passion for leading others toward the heart of God brings a unique element to every Wonder Voyage. Our ultimate goal is to send every participant home healthy, whole, and transformed.
If you are planning a trip for your group we understand your challenge. It’s a tone of work but the payoff for your team can be huge. But if you want to focus entirely on the spiritual and social dynamics of your team, if you want to be a fellow pilgrim rather than the guide, Wonder Voyage might just be the partnership you need.
