Language Center Outreach Team
OUTREACH AND CHURCH PLANTING
TEACHING IN NATIONAL SCHOOLS
Join an ongoing ministry team on a prominent Indian Ocean Island. Work beside experienced team leaders at an established training center. The Center provides a place for children and students to get help with their homework, learn how to read, improve their English and engage in other educational activities. They also run English classes for adults.
New workers will come in as Center volunteers to provide teaching support. This work provides an authentic platform for life and ministry, and creates natural bridges into the community. This provides opportunities to mix with families and speak truth in to their lives.
Goals for new workers:
- Study the culture and learn the local language (in addition to French).
- Work in the Center and develop new activities to serve and bless the community. Teach English, literacy, and other activities.
- Build intentional relationships with neighbors, friends, and students you get to know.
- Pray and have fellowship with other believers on the island (e.g. MBBs, African or European believers from the different churches).
