About

TEAM Papua’s vision is to see a mature, growing, vibrant national church which is actively sending national missionaries, and passionate about reaching the “Major Tribe” in Papua Indonesia. We achieve this vision by participating with God in bringing to maturity the growing national church, mobilizing it to send national missionaries, and leading and cooperating to reach the “Major Tribe” in Papua Indonesia. What does it mean "To bring to maturity"? Maturity is understood as having 2 parts, nationalizing the unfinished ministries where we presently have missionaries, and the maturing process of the national church (Bible Christian Fellowship Churches of Indonesia) which will bring them to the level where they are self governed, self supported, and self-propagating. What do we mean by "Mobilizing to send national missionaries"? Mobilization is understood as ministries involving: mission education, resource discovery, helping to develop missionary sending structures, mentor and coach national mission leadership, and identification of missions needs with the goal of sending national missionaries to reach unreached ethnic groups. Lastly, what do we mean by "Leading and cooperating to reach the 'major tribe'"? Establishing ministries which will lead the effort and cooperate with churches, organizations, individuals, or educational institutions in order to reach the “major tribe” within Papua with the gospel and bring them into contextualized fellowships.
