English Language Missions

English Language Missions

Matthew 25:38-40  “And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in….The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.”

One of the greatest challenges of being a stranger in a foreign land is overcoming the language barrier that exists to new residents. Developing successful communication skills are vital in the process of making healthy and smooth transitions from one’s home country to a new country. Learning a new language and culture can be overwhelming to our International new neighbors.

This is where our Florida Baptist churches have been given an incredible privilege and responsibility of helping our new International neighbors with these transitional challenges. English Language Missions seeks to demonstrate and share God’s love with individuals who are learning or struggling with language issues. This includes non-English speakers or functioning non-reading adults, students and children. The local church has a great opportunity to make an earthly and heavenly impact in the lives of “strangers” (Matthew 25:38) by communicating the love of Jesus through these language ministries.

English Language Missions includes: English as a Second Language (ESL), Citizenship, English as a Foreign Language (EFL), Adult Reading and Writing (ARW), Tutoring Children and Youth (TCY).

English as a Second Language (ESL)

In communities across Florida, the number of people who want and need to learn to speak English is increasing rapidly. Non-English speakers come to our state as refugees, migrant workers, international students, wives of military personnel, international businesspeople, seafarers, tourists and people who want a new start in life.  Many ethnic communities are found in our cities as well as our rural communities.  One of the best ways to demonstrate and share God’s love with our non-English speaking neighbors is through local church-based English as a Second Language (ESL) classes.  The primary goal of church-based ESL ministries is to intentionally share and demonstrate the gospel of Jesus Christ as we help people learn to speak English.

The 11-hour English as a Second Language Basic Workshop equips local church volunteers to intentionally share the gospel with new English speakers.  It addresses these topics: Organizing a local church English as a Second Language ministry; Dealing with cultural misunderstanding; Techniques for teaching English; Planning class sessions; Understanding a student’s English fluency; Incorporating the Bible in class sessions and sharing the gospel with students. Regional Advanced Trainings are offered as well.

Nine Florida Baptist Certified ESL Workshop Leaders are available to lead a workshop at your church.  These are listed on this web page.  Feel free to contact the one for your region or the Community Ministries Catalyst to schedule a workshop.

Citizenship

Citizens, American Flag

 

Citizenship Ministry helps qualified ESL students prepare to become U.S. citizens.  During Citizenship Classes, students learn vocabulary, American history and system of government that will help them prepare for their naturalization interview.  This is a great ministry reaching out to Internationals that have moved into our communities.

The 5-hour Citizenship Workshop shows how to integrate Citizenship with ESL Ministry and to equip the local church volunteers in preparing ESL students for their naturalization interview.  Contact the Community Ministries Catalyst to schedule a workshop.

English as a Foreign Language (EFL)

Many people living in nations overseas desire to know English.  English as a Foreign Language (EFL) is a great ministry for mission teams traveling abroad.

The 9-hour EFL Workshop is designed for short-term volunteers going overseas to teach conversational English.  Workshop contents include lesson planning, sample lessons, essentials for a bag of tricks, placement testing, culturally appropriate topics and what materials to take.

Many of the Certified ESL Workshop Leaders are qualified to lead EFL as well.  You may contact the ESL Workshop Leader for your region or the Community Ministries Catalyst to schedule a workshop.

Adult Reading & Writing (ARW)

More than 2.6 million adults in Florida— or 20 percent of those 16 and older — lack even the most basic reading skills, according to a study conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in 2009.  Life is difficult in several ways for struggling readers.  Job prospects are limited.  Family relationships suffer.  Medical instructions are often difficult to follow.  Navigating insurance, financial and social services are nearly impossible.  The Bible is inaccessible.  This ministry involves tutoring adults who are either illiterate, functioning non-readers, or those who are seeking to pass the “General Educational Development” (GED) test.  The primary goal of church based ARW ministries is to demonstrate and share the love of Jesus Christ.

The 11-hour Adult Reading and Writing Basic Workshop equips local church volunteers to intentionally share the gospel with adult low-level readers.  It addresses: ARW as a mission outreach of the church; Organizing an ARW ministry; Understanding low-level readers; Using the Bible to teach an adult to read; Introduction to high school equivalency and sharing Jesus with students.

Contact the Community Ministries Catalyst to schedule a workshop for your church.

Tutoring Children & Youth (TCY)

Many children and youth struggle with schoolwork. This can lead to low test scores, dropping out of school, family conflict, fear of failure, low self-esteem and the inability to understand what they read in the Bible.  Tutoring Children and Youth (TCY) ministries are designed to share Christ with children and youth while helping them build academic skills needed for school success.

The 11-hour Tutoring Children & Youth Basic Workshop equips churches to begin ministries to help students succeed in school.  Local church volunteers are taught to help children with reading, writing and math.  They are also introduced to working with students new to the United States and Canada.

Most important, the TCY Basic Workshop equips local church volunteers to share God’s plan of salvation with children and youth using language the students understand.  Workshop participants learn to incorporate prayer and scripture into every lesson so that the students have the opportunity to learn about Jesus.  They practice giving their testimony as if they were talking to a child or teen.  They become aware of questions to ask when they believe a child is ready to receive Christ.

Contact the Community Ministries Catalyst to schedule a workshop for your church.

English Language Missions Resources

These leaders are equipped and certified by the National Literacy Missions Partnership in cooperation with the North American Mission Board.  If your Church wants to start an ESL Ministry, feel free to contact the workshop leader in your region for information and set a date for training.  The Florida Baptist Convention will provide an honorarium and travel expenses to the workshop leader.  The Church is requested to provide housing, if needed, meals and space for training.
