Church-Based Teams: Jesus prayerfully selected a group of twelve disciples for focused training and ministry before sending them on a mission to the world. Sending a Church-Based Team follows this same pattern of identifying and training leaders and commissioning them for ministry among unreached peoples. Church-Based Teams are a natural, healthy extension of the local church community sent out to plant churches where the Gospel has not been heard. Through a Church-Based Team, the vision to reach the lost takes on greater significance in the regular life of the local body of believers. World Team can help guide and prepare your church to send a team of disciple-makers with varieties of gifts to the unreached. Taking ownership and being strategic about church planting alongside World Team will bless your local church and impact the nations as we bring them the Good News of Jesus.
