The Evangelical Alliance Mission


The Evangelical Alliance Mission

The Evangelical Alliance Mission (TEAM) is an inter-denominational evangelical Christian missionary organization founded by Fredrik Franson. TEAM used to be called the "Scandinavian Alliance Mission".

History

TEAM was founded October 14, 1890, by Rev. Fredrik Franson (as the Scandinavian Alliance Mission). Early missionaries pioneered in China, Japan, South Africa, Mongolia, India and South America. Today TEAM has missionaries in more than 40 countries around the globe.

Purpose

TEAM's purpose is to help churches send missionaries to establish reproducing churches among the nations to the 'glory of God'. TEAM is an evangelical mission agency which, in alliance with churches around the world, has planted and established 'Bible-believing' congregations on every continent. TEAM personnel contribute to this goal as they live out their faith through many avenues, including education, media and literature, relief and development and health-care.
