English as a Second Language (ESL) Missional Community
An extended family on mission to serve people who don't know the English language, loving them toward Jesus, salvation, and the church family.
mission field focus:
Jesus reached people who would never darken the door of a church by meetng needs they had. When Jesus ministered to them, He showed people God’s love and disciple them. The ESL MC seeks to follow His model by lovingly providing English lessons and teaching them about God, Jesus, & the Gospel.
ESL MC hosts English lessons Tuesday evenings at The Mission Church (Family Life Center). The team gathers once per month (usually afer church on a Sunday) for UP & IN together, and leaders partcipate in huddle. Helpers are always welcome (no foreign language ability necessary). Come visit us any Tuesday night!
Before each semester, we hang posters around the city advertsing ESL lessons at The Mission. Then we pray and wait on the Lord to bring whom He chooses. Tuesday nights we provide English lessons (based on ability) using Scripture and the Gospel. All the while, we learn who they are, pray, and love them toward the good news of Jesus and His loving
“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the farthest parts of the earth.” (Acts 1:8, NET)
