GoTeams International 2018 Projects

GoTeams International projects are designed to help IBSA churches provide an international project that is designed to ignite the missional fire of each participant. Churches with students who have completed 9th grade and up can participate by adopting a project as their own. Projects with high school students require one adult for every 5 people going on the team.

Individual high school and college age students from IBSA churches can also apply to be a part of a GoTeams international project. Please note that some projects are created for participants who are at least 18 years old, have graduated from high school and have completed their freshman year of college (or at least one year of work experience).

If your Church wants to adopt a project, please contact the GoTeams International Director directly:  Dwayne Doyle, 217-391-3134 or DwayneDoyle@IBSA.org.
