A Message from CEO Neil Ostrander

In partnership with local churches, International Teams serves the poor with practical programs that meet needs for shelter, food, clothing, clean water, education, medical care, sustainability, friendship, encouragement and hope.

Following the example of Jesus, we respond to all with an authentic desire to see emotional, economic and spiritual transformation. In the process, we ourselves are transformed as we build relationships and learn from our neighbours.

International Teams is moved to serve where the need is greatest. In urban Canada and across the globe, the greatest need is felt among orphans, widows, refugees, the unemployed and working poor, and those who are marginalized or oppressed.

In Canada, we work to build networks of churches that will collaborate for the good of their cities. Our goal is to encourage congregations to integrate fully in their local neighbourhoods and to equip the church to serve their global neighbour.

We invite you to join us as we serve joyfully in obedience to God, strengthened by those who stand beside us and encouraged in prayer.

Neil Ostrander
CEO, International Teams Canada
