Founded in 1873, World Team is a global agency serving on six continents. Our vision is to be innovative teams multiplying disciples and communities of believers, bringing the Gospel within reach of lost people everywhere we go.

- Meet regularly with students interested in missions and connect them to the World Team mobilizer on your campus to discuss next steps.
- Assist with events World Team organizes on your campus, especially by publicizing these events through announcements in classes or chapel, sharing through social media, etc.
