​Thousands of tribal groups around the world are isolated from the gospel by language, logistics and culture. Reaching them takes workers who will learn their language and ways of life, understanding how the love of Christ applies to their communities.

​TEAM workers in Africa and Asia are dedicated to serving indigenous groups with lives that exemplify Christ, building relationships and establishing mature churches. Click below to explore our current opportunities for service among indigenous groups. 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.
