Church Ministries

​​The church is at the center of everything TEAM does. From mobilizing God’s people for missions to making disciples and building Christian communities around the world.

​​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.

We want the message of Jesus Christ to go forth in new ways and would love to help you start your missionary journey.

Church Ministries Prayer Requests

  • Mark and Gretchen Potma in teh Czech Republic write, “As we shift our ministry focus from the Skalka church to the new Ládví church plant, please pray for the team of four elders assuming local leadership of the Skalka church: Petr Š., Petr V., Leendert, and Karel. Two of the four heard the gospel through the outreach of the Skalka church, and are now elders thanks to the discipleship and leadership training they received at the Skalka church.”
  • Art and Vicki Reyes in Mexico write, “Construction of the Emmanuel Evangelical Church of Los Cabos's sanctuary that was destroyed during Hurricane Odile continues. We are so grateful for the generosity and kindness of donors and the gifts from Mexican churches as well. Continue to pray over this project.”
