International Teams

Another mission board we have been impressed with has been International Teams. They seem to be really well grounded, have a great support system for their people, and be very open to new ways of doing things.

In perusing their website I was particularly impressed by what they had to say about themselves. Click on their About Us link and this is what they have to say:

Here is a snapshot of who IT is…

We are a nondenominational Christian, evangelical ministry embracing a wide range of backgrounds and styles.

We identify with the lostness of the world. We ourselves are utterly lost apart from the grace of Jesus.

Expressive worship of the living God is humanity's highest calling and ultimate end. We do it with joy, as often as we can.

God is both dangerous and good. Following him is a risk-taking adventure dependent on a miraculous God.

We are relational and strategic, living among those we serve.

We believe the Church is God's agent to reach the world. Really. Therefore, we are profoundly committed to the local church in its mission.

There are no marginalized people in God's Kingdom. Never is the gospel of reconciliation more clearly demonstrated than when hearts of hatred are turned to love.

We believe in people coming from everywhere, going to everywhere. Missions belongs to the whole world.

We want to be there before and long after the big campaign rolls through town. We want to build deep and long-term.

Faith is more than a decision. The call to "follow me" means transformed people building transforming communities.

Fail Forward!
