Community Development – Dar Sila, Chad
In the heart of Africa lies one of the most unreached people groups in the world — along with eight others. Dar Sila, Chad, is experiencing peace for the first time in many years, and this once-isolated region is now more open to the Gospel than ever before. That’s why TEAM is calling people like you to join us in Dar Sila.
The region is home to several unreached people groups, as well as a significant refugee population from the Darfur region of Sudan. All of these people groups are Muslim and unreached by the Good News. However, the region’s great physical needs mean there are an abundance of ways to tangibly show Christ’s love to people in need.
We need workers skilled in creation care, social justice, creative arts, education and more. Life will be rustic, but as you help build the community, you’ll also get to build meaningful relationships with locals and refugees. You’ll get to know a culture unlike any you’ve experienced before. And you’ll get to lead people to Christ and teach them how to follow Him!

Karanda Mission Hospital Staff – Harare, Zimbabwe
Karanda Mission Hospital in rural Zimbabwe is a busy place. Each year, the 150 bed hospital treats over 75,000 patients and performs over 4,000 surgeries. Besides the hospital, Karanda’s nursing and midwifery schools, primary correspondence school and home-based care ministries provide an authentic Christian witness to everyone it serves. That means there are ample opportunities for people of all kinds of skills and giftings to serve.
Nurse educators are needed at the nursing and midwifery schools to produce qualified professionals, ready to serve their communities. And because Karanda staff see medicine as ministry, you’ll get speak God’s truth into students’ lives every day. As students develop their skills, you’ll help them build a foundation of Christ-centered service that they can build their careers on.
The hospital is also in critical need of a water plant systems manager. In this role, you’ll make repairs and improve efficiency on the system that provides water to hundreds of patients every day, as well as the local community. Frequent interaction with staff and local villages will also give you opportunities for discipleship, Bible studies and Jesus film screenings.

Doctors and Surgeons – Harare, Zimbabwe
In the entire nation of Zimbabwe, there are just a few affordable surgical hospitals. Karanda Mission Hospital is one of them. Patients walk for days, weeks or longer to receive the lifesaving care Karanda’s staff provides. Not only is Karanda affordable, but the staff show expertise and love that is hard to find elsewhere. In fact, it’s so rare that people regularly come from surrounding countries for treatment!
However, Karanda Mission Hospital greatly needs more medical staff to keep up with the demand. The hospital provides 4,000 surgeries and sees 75,000 patients every year. Karanda needs doctors of all specialties, including general surgery, orthopedics, family practice, internal medicine, plastic surgery, pediatrics and ENT.
Church Building and Community Outreach - Papua, Indonesia
As a missionary to Papua, you can help the Papuan Church establish a firm foundation for generations to come.
- Serve as a church planting advisor, and help local believers plant and revitalize churches in the jungles of Papua. You’ll get to disciple church leaders and equip missionaries to serve among interior, unreached tribes!
- Become a Bible school teacher, and bring the Scriptures to life for eager women and men from the tribal interior of Papua. Many of your students will have no more than a grammar school education, but their desire to learn is unmatched.
- If God is calling you to teach at a higher level, consider becoming a theology professor at Erikson-Tritt Theological College. You’ll get to work with students from many different backgrounds, spiritually equipping them for ministry, public service and business careers.
- Erikson-Tritt is also looking for a nurse to work in the college’s clinic and teach classes on healthcare.
- Help transform local communities as a community outreach coordinator or youth program coordinator. You’ll get to serve at one of two community centers, teaching classes and leading youth events. These roles create a natural opening to share the Gospel and make disciples!
- Finally, we need school teachers for missionary kids at Hillcrest School. As an MK teacher, you’ll play a vital supporting role in ministries around the world. But you’ll also play a pivotal role in the lives of students who are often far from home and need wise, older believers to show them what it means to follow Christ.
LAUNCH – Muslim Immigrants in France
Launch is a two-year program is set in southern France, where the number of Muslim immigrants is growing every day. Many of these immigrants come from unreached nations. You’ll get the chance to build relationships and share the Gospel with them for the first time. And in turn, they’ll get to share the Gospel with their family and friends back home.
Launch incorporates language, cultural and ministry education into a semiformal, hands-on ministry experience. You’ll be mentored by seasoned missionaries who can guide you in practical ministry, cultural acclimation and spiritual development. During your first year, we’ll help you find your ministry niche. Then we’ll guide you through your second year as you dive deeper into your ministry and develop the skills to succeed in it.
Theology Professor – Papua, Zimbabwe, Bolivia or Southeast Asia
Even the biggest church plant will eventually die out if local believers aren’t trained to teach, disciple and lead. You can play a vital role by equipping new believers to use the gifts God gave them. As a theology professor, you’ll get to teach and mentor future pastors, missionaries and other church leaders. You’ll also serve students who may not be in full-time ministry, but are sharing Christ with their neighbors, co-workers and families. This is a chance to help first- and second-generation Christians shape their churches for years to come.
TEAM currently has four openings for a professor of theology.
