ESL- English as a Second Language

ESL Director – Allison Reeves

Assistant Director – Michelle Norman

 

This ministry began in September 2010. At this time, we have 2 active teachers,
1 active assistant, 1 interpreter and numerous volunteers who work where needed,
mostly in the children’s areas. We began with 29 registered adult students and
average 10-12 each week divided into appropriate competency levels. We have
3 levels and meet on Wednesday evenings. Children are welcome to come with them
and are encouraged to attend their age appropriate classes.

Only certified ESL teachers lead the class.

This ministry is open to anyone wishing to learn English as a second language and the teachers are trained as such. At this time, our attendees are Spanish speaking but it is not strictly a Hispanic ministry. We are open to anyone wishing or needing to learn the English language. Ultimately, our goal is to show them God’s love and share with them the gift of salvation. We are able to do this as we meet their need of language learning. We incorporate personal testimonies and stories from the bible. We offer the opportunity for them to share prayer requests with us that we can pass on to our Wednesday prayer meeting.

We are truly blessed to have the opportunity to offer this in our community. This allows our church members and children an opportunity to reach out to those of other languages, cultures and denominations.
