World Team is a global mission agency working in a growing number of unreached people groups, cities, countries and regions to plant reproducing churches, with the ultimate goal of reaching the unreached of the world.
Below are profiles of many of the countries where we have ministry opportunities. If you don’t find the people group or country you are looking for, please contact us!
More than 100 people groups in Brazil have never heard the gospel, largely due to geography or policies which isolate them from the outside world. There is little to no evangelical presence working among this population. Locals refer to them as “the invisibles” or “hidden” people. World Team, in partnership with other like-minded agencies, is committed to reaching these migrant populations.
Bringing Hope to a Broken People – Cambodia is a land of mighty rivers and monsoons in the rainy season, dry river beds, brittle brush, and parched rice fields in the dry season. It is a land of Buddhist temples, a struggling infrastructure, and a broken people who have little hope for the future.
Christian missionary efforts have been sporadic in various locations. It is estimated that a few hundred Cham have decided to follow Jesus, but there are still no churches, and most live in places far away from the nearest missionary. The New Testament is being translated into Cham and is almost complete.
Africa in Miniature – Cameroon has it all. Beautiful mountains, forests, deserts, and broad tropical savannas. Colorful people speaking more than 290 indigenous languages. Big cities, rural villages and small forest camps.
Who are the Baka? – For the Baka, life centers around survival. As the logging industry changes the rainforest, their traditional lifestyle is harder and harder to maintain. The large game animals have retreated further into the dense forest as the hardwood trees whose fruit and shelter they depend on have been logged out.
People at the End of the Road – Fear is the unifying motivator that holds their communities together; the glue that binds and controls all the individuals of the society. Sadly, it permeates every aspect of their culture.
Hope for the Hopeless – Words that are vital for communicating the Gospel are missing in Kwakum, including grace, gift, and hope. This is as much a cultural phenomenon as it is linguistic. Most of the Kwakum people have never experienced these life-changing realities.
World Team among the Pol – Not only are the Pol poor in a material sense, but they also have great spiritual need. The Bible has yet to be translated into Pol, and many of the Pol do not read. Thus language often keeps them in spiritual darkness. Because the Pol are without the Bible in their language, World Team is looking for linguists and translators to come develop their language, start literacy programs, and translate the Bible.
So many waiting to hear – From only a handful of Jesus followers in 1989 to over 15,000 worshipers on a given Sunday now, God has worked with power in this amazing land. The pressures against the Christian faith for the Kazakh include strenuous laws against sharing the Gospel and very significant family prohibitions.
God is moving in the hearts of people to reach Uyghurs in Central Asia – The Uyghur people are a Turkic people, with a culture and language very similar to other Central Asian peoples. They are a hospitable people, who do not hesitate to invite someone in for tea, naan bread, or an entire meal. Their Muslim faith influences their identity despite their tendency to be less devout.
