As part of the international outreaches, Times Square Church sends outreach teams from the congregation to participate in various types of ministries. The Times Square Church outreach teams are made up of volunteers. Generally, sixty to one hundred volunteers travel to these international outreaches. The group is divided into smaller teams of ten to fifteen people so they can minister more effectively.
Times Square Church works with the local host committee to develop outreaches that are appropriate for that particular community.
Typically, the outreach teams minister in prisons, hospitals, orphanages, AIDS hospices, primary and secondary schools, and universities. They are also involved in street and door-to-door evangelism, sports outreaches, children’s ministry, training of children’s and youth workers, as well as church visitation and preaching.
The Times Square Church volunteers who make up these outreach teams take time off work and away from their families to share the love of Christ with these communities. To participate in these international outreaches the volunteers pay their own way or raise the money for the trip by sending letter appeals to friends and family. Their willingness to obey God’s call is its own reward. They always return so much richer after seeing lives changed by the hand of God.
