SBC of Virginia (SBCV)

SBCV English as a Second Language (ESL)
ESL Ministry at The Heights English as a Second Language Ministry is another way for our church to reach out to our community with the love of Christ. There are people in our community that need to learn English or strengthen their English skills. In Lev 19:33-34 it says: 33 “‘When an alien lives with you in your land, do not mistreat him. 34 The alien living with you must be treated as one of your native-born. Love him as yourself, for you were aliens in Egypt. I am the LORD your God.” NIV In Chesterfield County we have approximately 8% of our population that is foreign born. We as followers of Christ need to be loving to aliens or foreigners in our land. We are not to mistreat them. Quite the contrary; we are to treat them as equals and love them. So how can we show this population God’s love? We can try to meet their needs. One need is the need to be able to communicate. How can we share about the Lord if we don’t know their language and they don’t know ours. Knowing the language spoken in that city, state, or country, helps that person navigate their everyday environment. English is what is spoken here in America. A way for us to show Christ’s love is to teach people who don’t know our language; English. Another avenue to use English lessons as a ministry involves short and long term mission trips. Being an English teacher can open doors in countries that are closed to traditional missionaries. EFL (English as a Foreign Language) can also open doors to poorer countries who want to educate their students so they can compete on a global scale. The training our teachers receive shows them how to merge their faith and teaching skills together. You might be asking; how do you teach a class without knowing the students first language? We are trained in a way that we don’t need to know any other language other than English and not only that we can have native speakers from several languages in class together. ESL teachers come away from the training workshops not only feeling confident about teaching English, but can see how to weave their faith in Christ into the lessons. How can I help? Pray!! Go to an ESL training workshop. E-mail us. Miriam & Jeff Fuller firstname.lastname@example.org 804-768-9514
