together emphasizing alaska's mission (team) and team grants
When TEAM began in 1997, we had little idea how the Spirit would take this ministry forward. New mission sites, capital projects, new ministry projects and outreach to our neighbors tell us that the Spirit is working. God bless us as we work together.
THE GOAL -- MISSION EMPHASIS
In response to Alaska Synod Assembly Resolution 96-6 TEAM was established to begin a synodical mission emphasis. Congregations or groups of congregations are invited to submit proposals for projects which:
- Emphasize growth and development of ministries within Alaska
- Require a synod commitment not to exceed two years
- Address one of the following synod goals/ministry emphases: (May 2007)
- Celebrate and empower all the baptized to proclaim the Gospel in our communities and to grow ministries throughout the synod.
- Live out our gratitude for God’s gracious abundance, despite the challenges of limited resources, doing the work of God’s Kingdom of serving, inviting and connecting.
- Work to help assure that the young and the poor will thrive and be nurtured in the Christian faith while empowering them to seek voice and justice in our communities.
