Train Equip And Mobilize believers for effective ministry.


History of Teamwork Ministries International & Teamwork Bible College International

In 1985, upon returning home to Kenya after college in the United States, God made clear to Dr. Chacha the great need for strong Christian leaders in developing nations.

Thousands were coming to the Lord daily, yet many were quickly falling away due to the lack of solid biblical teaching and effective leadership. Too often, those who were called to lead had little or no opportunity for Bible training or for learning principles of leadership. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, Dr. Chacha returned to the U.S. and founded Teamwork Ministries. From this launching pad, Teamwork Bible College International has been established in many countries around the globe to provide Christian distance education - training, equipping, and mobilizing believers in effective Christian vocational ministry. Dr. Chacha’s wife, Regina Chacha is a great partner in the work. Following Dr. Chacha’s passing in an accident in 2015, she is now the president of Teamwork Ministries and chancellor of Teamwork Bible College International.

Teamwork City of Hope

Although Teamwork Ministries and Teamwork Bible College have great impact, Dr. Chacha felt there was an opportunity to uplift a community by investing in the next generation of leaders – the children. In 2007, he received a calling to help the people in his home village of Ntagacha, Tanzania. His love for the children became all-consuming as he made it his mission to pour his life into giving back to the people in his community. He brought City of Hope in a short time to include a children’s home serving 110 orphans, Destiny Primary School and Amani Medical Center. After his passing in 2015, City of Hope has continued to grow and now includes the Dr. John Chacha Secondary School.
