Go Teams are a tangible enacting of 127 Worldwide’s Mission, Vision, and Distinctives. As the redeemed people of God, we all join his work in caring for the vulnerable and restoring hope to a broken world. And as members of the global body of Christ, we collaborate in that work to spur one another on in love and good deeds.
Our team collectively has decades of experience mobilizing short term teams. We work with vetted and trusted travel agents and local leaders to create a Go Team itinerary. From international airfare to on the ground logistics, 127 Worldwide takes care of every detail to ensure you have a safe and valuable experience. Our team leaders receive additional training and are equipped to share their knowledge with you on the field.
Connect and Equip Teams
Connect Teams are designed to promote education and exposure that fuels action and advocacy. The experience of visiting a 127 partner affords our advocates a greater understanding of the work local leaders do year-round. Team members return equipped with the knowledge and awareness to effectively leverage their networks at home on behalf of what God is doing through local leaders to restore hope to vulnerable communities. This is our most programmed trip and is open for all to apply.
Equip Teams are skill-based teams that utilize specific expertise and qualifications to build capacity in local leaders as they help vulnerable communities to flourish. These teams could be anything from pastors training other pastors to a cow farmer helping to launch a sustainable business. All of our Equip Teams seek to promote asset-based development, which means that our projects are partner-driven and capitalize on the existing vision, strengths, and efforts of local ministries and the community. You can apply for an Equip Team by invitation only.
