39 Boot Camps in 23 countries around the globe!
Many people are familiar with the ministry of Teen Missions in the United States – the Lord’s Boot Camp and summer mission trips – but Teen Missions is more than a local short-term mission agency, it’s a growing mission organization that stretches around the globe.
Teen Missions worldwide ministry includes:
- 29 worldwide bases on six continents.
- 39 Boot Camps in 23 countries.
- Over 32,000 overseas team members since 1982.
- 26 active Bible, Missionary & Work (BMW) Training Centers with over 500 students worldwide.
- A thriving AIDS Orphans ministry including 35 Orphan Rescue Units and 7 Matrons Units.
- A growing Motorcycle Sunday School Mission with 4 Circuits, taking the Word of God to remote villages. Which includes 21 sunday schools.
Each overseas base is bursting with opportunities to serve. A Bible school, an annual Boot Camp and active community outreach are all part of a typical base. Staff and students also take on agriculture projects, raise animals and, in some countries, operate a retreat center to generate income for the base. All our bases in Africa are heavily involved in AIDS relief programs.
Teen Missions has bases in the following countries:
Below are descriptions of some of the ministries that the bases are involved in:
Overseas Boot Camps
Overseas Boot Camps follow a program similar to the one in the United States. Each participant is placed on a team and receives Boot Camp training in construction, evangelism, Bible, teamwork and discipline. After Boot Camp, the teams embark to cities and villages in the surrounding areas. They do work projects such as building churches, renovating schools and helping the villagers on small projects. They also have the opportunity to share the love of Christ with the locals and in churches. In most countries the team members attend free—their cost is built into the team cost of the North American teams.
Bible, Missionary & Work (BMW) Training Centers
Most of the overseas bases operate a BMW Training Center – a tuition-free Bible school available for former team members. These schools combine Bible classes and practical work training, equipping young men and women for ministry in their own country, or wherever God may lead them. Click here for more information.
AIDS Orphans & Street Children (AOSC)
AOSC is a rapidly-growing sister ministry of Teen Missions that focuses on AIDS orphans in sub-Saharan Africa. Each of our bases in Africa are involved in AIDS orphans ministry and have at least one AIDS Orphans Rescue Unit. These Units are set up in villages as a place where orphans and the other villagers can come for food assistance, medical care and other needs. Click here for more information.
