Often when people think of missionaries, they think of someone living in another country serving full-time for the rest of their lives. While that definition can fit, there are lots of other definitions that can fit as well:
Regular – we have several individuals who have chosen to make J-Teams a regular part of their schedule. Some come every other year, some come yearly, some even come more than once a year. The roles these folks play have grown and continue to grow. Consider joining their ranks.
Seasonal – perhaps you have a larger block of vacation time that you would like to use ministering in Jamaica. Talk to us – opportunities abound!
Short term – perhaps you are between jobs or you have lots of discretionary time or your time is extremely
Flexible – talk to us, opportunities for ministry abound!
Targeted – perhaps you have a burden for specific ministry needs in Jamaica – talk to us to determine how you can be a part of ministering to those needs either personally in Jamaica or from afar.
Full-time partners in Jamaica – yes, we also need those kinds of missionaries – living in Jamaica serving full-time, at least for a while, if not for the rest of their lives. Talk to us.

Our God is a relational God. He created us in His image as relational, rational, volitional, emotional beings. And then He invited us to partner with Him. Judges 6,7 gives the account of Gideon’s invitation to partner with God and the four things God requires: faith, obedience, the Holy Spirit, and God’s grace. Faith is… Continue Reading
Serving is a huge part of the Christian Life–it is what we are designed for, serving others. From the very beginning we were created to meet others’ needs and allow others to meet our needs. Jesus Himself said He came to serve, not to be served (Mark 10:45). Service comes in many forms–with family, with friends, with people you… Continue Reading
How will I serve God now? I have wrestled with many questions the past 16 months, but this one has been the most pressing. I felt I couldn’t make any other decisions without having this question answered. For many months, I couldn’t concentrate long enough to decide on dinner, so long term decisions had to… Continue Reading
Grace and peace to you!

Ministry Decisions I would like to thank you all for holding my family up in prayer this past year. I know it has been the only reason that we have continued to recover and start to move forward. TEAMS encouraged me to hold off on any life-changing decisions for a year. That was very wise… Continue Reading

Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup; You make my lot secure. Psalm 16:5 Dear Loved Ones, I can’t write and tell you that my life is anything but blessed. God has been faithful to give me a daily portion of His goodness and peace; although somedays I have believed my cup to… Continue Reading
February 3, 2017 Dear Ministry Partners, It is hard to believe that Harold and Teri Nichols joined the T4MM family 14 years ago. In that time they have ministered to thousands of children and adults all over Jamaica and to hundreds of Americans who have participated on our J-Teams. Their heart for God and for… Continue Reading
