• The Global Trek

    Aug. 22, 2013

    Moody's online virtual game is back. Called The Global Trek, this year, it will take place from Aug. 26–Sept. 15, and is centered on the theme found in Philippians 3:13-14—"Finishing the Race."

    "Last year, more than 30,000 participants took part in the Moody Virtual Marathon game," said Dr. Paul Nyquist, president of Moody Bible Institute. "Our hope is that more than 70,000 will participate in The Global Trek this year. It will once again be fun and encouraging as players see first-hand how God is using Moody around the globe."

    In The Global Trek, virtual travelers receive a personal Web page that features a digital passport informing them how much of the three-week journey they have completed. They will read stories about alumni serving around the globe and the impact Moody is having, learn about Moody's various ministry efforts through education, publishing, radio and conferences, as well engage with ministries Moody partners with throughout the world.

    Earning Points

    Participants will have the opportunity to earn points throughout The Global Trek the following ways.

    • Daily devotional challenge: Virtual travelers will be challenged in their spiritual life through prayer, acts of kindness and other ways as well.
    • Recruiting friends and family: Bonus points will be earned by recruiting friends and family through social media.
    • Texting challenge: By signing up for text messages, virtual travelers will receive a short devotional text each Sunday along with a chance to earn a weekly bonus point by entering that week's secret code.
    • Autopilot: If participants opt in to the Autopilot feature, The Global Trek will make posts on the players' behalf to their Facebook page to notify their friends of their progress and help in recruiting as well.
    • Immigration password: By listening to Moody Radio, players will receive a daily password to enter for a chance at bonus points each day.

    At the end of each week, a trip will be awarded to the player with the most points earned for that week.
