Partner as a church or organization
With each other
ITeams is all about WITH. Our approach to integrated community transformation affirms the dignity and ability of those within the community to be part of the solution. We seek to empower local leaders, agencies, churches and entrepreneurs to be agents of transformation. Under this local asset-based model we then seek to involve the unique contributions of those outside the community. Churches, businesses, schools and organizations partner in unique ways to leverage their expertise and resources while benefiting from the knowledge and initiative of local leaders. With Jesus, and with each other, we change the future.
We invite your church, business, or other organization to join with us to help the oppressed.

INTEGRATED COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION
When we enter a community, we seek to relate to and understand the community through the eyes of Jesus. This includes pre-training and ongoing on-field research.
EVALUATE and ENGAGE
We repeat a collaborative cycle that aims to work alongside others in the community to identify and assess both needs and resources. Alongside the community, we encourage initiatives guided by a strategy and help implement them.
As transformation takes hold in a community our role changes. We avoid creating unhealthy dependencies and focus on what Jesus is doing within the community. This typically leads to expansion as transformation impacts surrounding communities.
