Chad : Community Development Short-term Team


TEAM is launching a new ministry in the town of Goz Beida, the political and economic center of the Dar Sila region in eastern Chad. This region is home to several unreached people groups, including the predominant Dar Sila Daju people. There is also a significant refugee population from the Darfur region of Sudan that numbers between 50,000 to 100,000. All of these people groups are Muslim and unreached by the Good News.

We desire to live out our faith among the people, aiming to help with both their physical and spiritual needs. We seek to establish an indigenous, culturally sensitive reproducing community of disciples in each of the main people groups in the Dar Sila region. An experienced TEAM Chad missionary is leading this ministry, working in partnership with the local evangelical church to build friendships by using avenues that may include programs for education, agriculture/water, technical training, healthcare, social justice, sports and recreation, and counseling.

Be part of short-term that will assist in either developing community development projects or work in ongoing community development projects. These projects could include micro-enterprise development, education, agriculture/water, technical training, healthcare, social justice, sports and recreation, and counseling. You will experience life and missions in a Chadian context with an experienced missionary. Language learning, cultural adaptation, living in a national home, and participation in a variety of ministries make up the core of this experience.
