Global Teams equips and sends field partners from many nations to multiply disciples of Jesus within cultures least familiar with the Gospel.
Global Teams is an international mission movement focused on reaching the 6,648 unreached people groups. Put another way, our desire is to reach the 2.9 billion people who have never heard the gospel. Following John 1:14: “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us,” we ensure that church planting movements emerge in forms and expressions that fit the culture of that people group and enable the gospel to spread.
In Scripture, we see Christ respond to the needs of those around him with compassion. Following his model, as Global Teams field partners go to the least-reached people groups, they are also moved to compassion and often respond with community development projects that become a part of their ongoing work.Read More
