Our Leadership

Ray Chow, Global Resources and Services
Ray comes to TEAM with a diverse background and strong track record in leading change, building teams and developing people in a broad range of environments including consulting, financial services, operations and ministry. He is helping TEAM globalize our services and operations including the structure of global hubs, training and development, and the interface of resources and services from the United States and Canada to our worldwide organization.

Scott Henson, International Director
Combining a background in ministry, business, and higher education, Scott has served God’s purposes in all corners of the globe. Whether ministering to refugees in Asia, turning around a struggling publishing business, doing church planting, or teaching international law and business, Scott leads with energy and grace in the pursuit of excellence for God’s glory. He has a particular passion for seeing God’s people mobilized to serve in cross-cultural ministry – the fields are white for harvest!

Kirk Ogden, Executive Director, Americas
To Kirk, all of life is about God’s mission to rescue His creation and restore our freedom to serve Him. Kirk has had the joy of serving through university ministry with InterVarsity, church planting and leadership development in Bolivia, and executive leadership with South America Mission — not to mention his own growth as a disciple. At TEAM, Kirk is committed to integrating our various activities for the greatest effectiveness in bringing glory to God.

Matthew Sheers, Chief Financial Officer
Matthew grew up in Colombia as a TEAM MK, later becoming a CPA specializing in international taxation. After serving on TEAM's Board of Directors, he is now using his experience and expertise to take a more hands on role in implementing God’s special vision for TEAM. He and his wife, Sandy, live in Parker, Colorado.

Finn Torjesen, Executive Director, Asia Pacific
Finn has spent his whole life with TEAM, growing up as a third culture kid in Taiwan and serving as an adult in France, Taiwan, Indonesia and China. Today he lives in Taiyuan, China, where he builds networks between our national partners, international partners and the movements God is blessing. Finn also coordinates with the other Asia Pacific leaders to support them in their work. He has a love for seeing international teams work well together for God's glory. 

Ray Williams, Executive Director, Global Ministries
With over 30 years of missionary service and leadership, Ray is passionate about raising up healthy, effective missionaries around the world.
