Ministry Opportunities

Team Australia's mission and purpose is to serve our Lord Jesus Christ by sharing the good news of the Gospel with the lost as well as encouraging and edifying Christians in their personal walk with Christ.  Even though we are beginning to plan our 2018 ministry opportunities (which are very consistent with our 2017 ministries), to help give you an idea of the breadth and depth of our ministries below was our 2017 Summer ministry schedule ("click" on image to make it larger).  We will provide the 2018 Ministry Calendar sometime in November-December 2017.
