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!
God is Moving Among Muslims – The gospel is for every people group in the world without exception, since all are made in God’s image and are designed for relationship with Him.

In many of the areas of South Asia, those that identify as Christian are fewer than 1%. Many of those believers come from Hindu backgrounds, posing many cultural and language obstacles to reaching their Muslim neighbors. Yet in the last forty years, Muslim-background believers have multiplied from about a dozen to perhaps 10,000 today.
Today, Southeast Asia is being deeply impacted by the transmigration of people within the area. Migrants represent a variety of ethnic groups and religious backgrounds, Islam being the largest.
A Whirlwind of Change – Spain is the land of festivals! In every city, town and village there is a fiesta of some kind which gets all the townsfolk out on the streets with their neighbors.
A Church within Walking Distance – The Hindustani, also known as East Indians, are of Indian decent and began arriving in Suriname in 1873 as indentured laborers. They were immediately put to work on the coffee, cocoa and sugar cane plantations.
