“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 inter-agency 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.
