World Team has more than 200 years of combined global missions history between two agencies which merged in 1995. Regions Beyond Missionary Union traces its roots to Harley Bible College in London, founded in 1873 by the Irish revivalist H. Grattan Guinness. Worldteam, originally West Indies Mission, was formed in 1928 as a small Bible Institute in central Cuba by Elmer Thompson and B.G. Lavastida.
Today World Team has more than 350 workers serving in 28 countries across the Americas, Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Our passion is making disciples among unreached people groups and bringing them into community so that churches are planting churches until all nations have been reached.
In recent years God has opened wide the doors for new ministries among the working class in Taiwan, Cambodia’s Khmer people, internationals in NYC, and minority group peoples in Central Asia and Africa. And God is mobilizing a dynamic new missionary force from places like Indonesia, Suriname, the Philippines, and West Indies. Find your place in this dynamic story, from a short-term exploratory ministry to career missions, there’s a place for you.
