Missionary TECH Team is a non-profit Christian ministry that serves other ministries with technical and professional services at a cost less than what someone would find from the marketplace. INTD major, Steph Muwangi, participated in the Internship program during the summer 2014.

  • English
  • Graphic Design
  • Interior Design
  • Photography

MTT services include:

  • Planning and design of facilities, such as churches, camps, offices, and schools
  • Graphic design services, including banners, printed materials, and corporate identity, such as logos and letterhead
  • Computer services, which focuses on software development for all platforms, including mobile devices
  • Car leasing program for missionaries on furlough in the US; we maintain and lease the cars from our office in Longview, TX

The MTT staff are faith supported, the same as a typical missionary.  MTT has full-time service opportunities and an internship program.  The program provides housing for students looking for an opportunity to serve God and gain useful professional experience.  It is not a paid internship, however students are encouraged to raise funds for travel and living expenses.  Please take a look at the website for more information: www.techteam.org.
