History and purpose

Teen Missions International, Inc. was founded in Florida, USA in 1970, to challenge, train and disciple young people, exposing them to worldwide missions.

Since that time over 60,000 young people and adults from around the world have experienced missions first-hand in more than 70 countries, by assisting with evangelistic and building projects with established missions.

Teen Missions Australia started in 1987 and Teen Missions New Zealand was incorporated in 1996.  

Our purpose is to introduce young people between the ages of 13 and 25 to mission work around the world.  The goal is to challenge, train and disciple young people and to channel the enthusiasm and energies of youth into mission work projects and evangelism.

The primary purpose of our summer teams program is to build teens spiritually, physically, mentally and socially.  Today, with the influence of the world, we desire to help young people live victoriously for the Lord, and at the same time we endeavor to instill in them a missionary vision.
