Global Engagement Teams
Short-term team opportunities with long-lasting impact
Global Engagement Teams
Global Engagement Teams bring people together from across the US for the common purpose of coming alongside the oppressed for two weeks each spring / summer. The teams are strategic and will help our ministries advance their efforts with long-lasting impact.
Team participants will also experience long-lasting impact as they train together, serve others, and expand their worldview.
