If you are interested in teaching or leading any of these areas and would like to be considered to join a team in 2021  or later, please contact your area champion.    

  • Leadership development for pastors and laity
  • Children and youth ministry
  • Discipleship training
  • Church Administration
  • Income-generation projects, entrepreneurship and small business development


Church and District Mission Teams

Local church and district mission teams are also encouraged to build relationships with the churches and congregations in Tanzania. These relationships should be considered long-term and therefore the first trip will be a learning or exploratory trip that helps you connect with local churches and better understand what the context and ministries currently at work are.

Examples of local church mission work:

  • Worship with local congregations
  • Vision meeting with local church leadership
  • Children or youth programs
  • Listening sessions with local leaders

If you are interested your church building a relationship with a congregation in Tanzania, please contact your area champion.
