International Teams


International Teams (IT) is an interdenominational, evangelical Christian ministry that works to bring people together to help the oppressed. Their global vision is to see lives and communities transformed by the power of God. All short-term teams from El Refugio are sent through this organization, all of our interns are sent through IT, and all formal processes and financial support goes through  and to the work of International Teams.

Youth World (Misión Mundo Juvenil) is the name of the the team we're a part of here in Ecuador. Founded in 1994, Youth World is based in Quito and is a ministry of International Teams. We exist to identify, teach and equip leaders to impact young people and families to be disciples of Jesus Christ. Youth World accomplishes this goal through six different areas of ministry, one of which is Hacienda El Refugio. To learn more about Youth World, visit our website at: www.youthworld.org.ec.
