Church Ministries

​​The church is at the heart of everything TEAM does. It is God’s chosen instrument for redeeming the world, and it forms the foundation of the greatest solutions to mankind’s greatest problems.

​​Whether teaching in a classroom on the coast of Indonesia, serving lattes at a cafe in Japan, or running retreats in the French Alps, all of TEAM’s work points toward the church. Many of our missionaries serve exclusively in church leadership roles, including pastoring, church planting and discipleship. We believe that rooting our activities in the local church makes ministry more effective and churches more viable. Rather than starting independent churches or projects that compete with the existing church, TEAM workers partner with local congregations, Christian groups, and national leaders whenever possible. Click below to explore our current opportunities for service in Church Ministries. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, please share your ideas with us. We want the message of Jesus Christ to go forth in new ways and would love to help you start your missionary journey.
