Social Justice

​“Charity is no substitute for justice withheld,” Saint Augustine once said. At TEAM, we are called to actively restore the dignity lost through the corruption of sin and to break cycles that keep the vulnerable oppressed. Slavery, poverty and addiction remain powerful forces of oppression today that must be met with a holistic gospel of freedom in Christ’s name.

TEAM’s social justice initiatives work in conjunction with local churches and through interagency partnerships. From visiting prisoners and serving homeless women and drug addicts in Latin America, to befriending victims of sex trafficking in Austria and Italy, our projects are designed to grow disciples in addition to enacting hope. TEAM provides missionary opportunities in social justice for individuals with experience ministering to vulnerable populations, with a focus on sustainable and risk-appropriate initiatives.

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

Social Justice Prayer Requests

  • Pray for the ministry with vulnerable women in Chad, that they would be able to come alongside these girls and that the Lord would send more women to serve in this ministry.
  • Workers in South Asia write, “We were able to share the Good News of Jesus with several ladies at the shelter house recently. Please continue to pray for these ladies and their children facing desperate situations. If they remain safe, apart from an abusive husband (at the shelter house), they lose their means for belonging in a culture where such women have no value or place in society. Sometimes the social and financial pressures cause them to return to tremendously dangerous and destructive situations. Please pray that Jesus will intervene in their broken worlds and show them the way forward.”
