Disabled and Disadvantaged

​The Bible articulates a special concern for those considered “the least of these” by society. TEAM workers serve around the world to offer support and the love of Christ to families and individuals experiencing disability, whether physical or mental.

We desire for all people to be discipled into full maturity and their full potential as children of God. Opportunities to serve include physical therapy, education, sign language, and medicine. Click below to explore our current opportunities to serve people with special needs. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, 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.
