Alpha Mission Teams
Live out your faith!
An Alpha Mission Team is a practical two-year missionary training programme for single people and families. Each team consists of six to ten people, guided and trained by an experienced missionary.
“It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known …” Romans 15:20
Do these words of the Apostle Paul resonate with you? Would you too like to make Jesus known in places where people have never had the opportunity to hear of him? Would you like to be well-equipped to do so?
If so, take a few minutes to read about Alpha Mission Teams – a programme designed to do exactly that. This could be just the opportunity you’ve been looking for to launch yourself into cross-cultural ministry!
World Outreach International is in the process of forming new teams, which will bring the light of the gospel to the “ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).
Alpha is the first word in the Greek alphabet. These teams will be among the first to bring the good news to a Least Reached People (LRP) group.
You can be part of one of these teams!
World Outreach International needs couples, families, and single people to commit to serve on an Alpha Mission Team. This will involve relocating to and living among a Least Reached People group for two years.
If you join one of these teams, World Outreach International will help you prepare to go by allocating an experienced missionary who will be your mentor while you raise support and prepare to go. We will find accommodation for you in the country. We will assist you in obtaining a visa for the country in question. We will train you in cross-cultural missions. We will provide leadership for your team. We will draw from our resources and experience to help your team in any way we can. And trust God to bring forth fruit for his Kingdom!
Yet don’t kid yourself. Bringing the love of God to a dark place is not easy. This is not for everyone. We are looking for people who want to be part of God’s plan and make a significant difference for eternity.
If you want to walk a walk of faith with Jesus, be like Isaiah and say to the Lord “here I am, send me” (Is 6:8), join an Alpha Mission Team!
From day one of the two year programme, you will be a real missionary. This is apostolic, front-line work. We cannot promise that it will be easy. You probably won’t become famous. But you will feel fulfilled in playing a significant part in helping to fulfil the Great Commission.
