TEAM - The Evangelical Alliance Mission is a global mission agency that partners with the local church to send missionaries and establish reproducing churches among the nations, going where the most people have the most need and proclaiming the Gospel in both word and action. We envision the church transforming our world.
Founded more than 125 years ago, we partner with churches to send missionaries to work in evangelism, church planting, community development, healthcare, education, social justice, business as mission and many other areas of global missions. To accomplish these objectives, we subject our lives to the truth of Scripture, and we rely on God through prayer. God provides what is necessary to carry out world evangelization. While only God can save, we speak His words, use His gifts and reflect His love. Without constant reliance on God through prayer and obedience to His Word, we can do none of these things.
TEAM is both an equal opportunity employer and a faith-based religious organization. We conduct hiring without regard to race, color, ancestry, national origin, citizenship, age, sex, marital status, parental status, membership in any labor organization, political ideology or disability of an otherwise qualified individual. The status of TEAM as an Equal Opportunity Employer does not prevent the organization from hiring personnel based on their religious beliefs so that all personnel shares the same religious commitment. Pursuant to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 702 (42 U.S.C. [§] 2000e[- ]1(a)), TEAM has the right to and does, hire only candidates who wholeheartedly and without reservation agree with TEAM’s Statement of Faith.
