EMM's Kingdom Teams (or K-Teams) offer groups of North American youth/young adults the opportunity to engage in cross-cultural mission within a local context for one week during the summer. Kingdom Teams will be accompanied by EMM staff, who will lead them in discipleship training and application of what they have learned through cross-cultural outreach and service. Groups of youth/young adults must be accompanied by a group leader and at least one adult chaperone for every six youth participants.

Participants will stay in a community setting near their Lancaster outreach location.
K-Teams will serve refugees and immigrants in Lancaster alongside local community partners involved with the growing refugee population. In collaboration with various community groups, K-Teams will work with newly arrived refugee youth in a summer school program, helping them practice their English skills and gain confidence in relating to others. Outreach activities may include serving refugee children and youth through clubs, crafts, tutoring, English conversation activities, sports and games, and other activities that build community and evidence the love of Christ. Other activities may include prayer walks, cultural learning experiences, and service projects such as setting up an apartment for an arriving refugee family, sorting donations, or other projects that benefit local organizations serving refugees.
