Community Development

​We believe in seeking the welfare of the cities or villages where we’ve been sent. When a woman earns extra income for her family by sewing bags in a microenterprise, or when children play on a soccer field built on an abandoned lot, the entire community benefits.

When we seek the welfare of our cities, we are tangibly loving our neighbors and proclaiming the importance of community in discipleship. TEAM community development initiatives range from helping Japanese communities rebuild from multiple disasters, to training community workers in the Philippines, to managing community centers in Latin America and Asia. We focus on projects that are sustainable and locally appropriate. Click below to explore our current opportunities for service in Community Development. 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.
