We are the Lipic family, Mark, Kathy, Grant, Alex and Nia, from Bloomington, Illinois. We are excited to be partnering with Team Expansion as we pursue God’s command to make disciples of all nations.

Our family will be living in Catania, Sicily where refugees from many nations are arriving daily. These individuals and families are placed in camps where they begin the process of seeking asylum, which often takes several years.

The vision God has given us is to share His word within the refugee camps and to disciple, teach and train individuals how to make disciples who make disciples. Our hope is that as these people move throughout many parts of Europe in the coming years, they will be obedient to God’s call on their lives to make disciples of all nations. We believe that God is using the refugee crisis to make Himself known among unreached people groups of the world.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our family and the ministry   God has lead us to in Catania, Sicily. As Team Expansion workers we rely 100% on donations and support to continue following the call the Lord has given us. If you would like to partner with us we would love to connect with you!

Our Mission

Born out of extraordinary prayer, we partner with the global church to mobilize, train, and coach qualified workers in the implementation of the fruitful practices of church planting movements. Our Team Expansion family currently consists of more than 350 full-time adult workers serving in 46 countries in 70 distinct church planting projects. So far we’ve seen God use our efforts to plant over 600 churches, with over 15,000 individuals baptized into Christ – more than 1,300 baptisms in 2014 alone!

Financial Accountability

Team Expansion is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Since 1981, our workers have sent monthly financial reports with full disclosure and completely “open hands.” You’ll know every month how much money came in and how it was spent. Thank you for your partnership and shared vision.
