What the Mission Trip Will Be Like
Evangelistic English Language Camps (EELCs) are a good opportunity for lay people to become involved in front-line, cross-cultural evangelism and discipleship. The increasing popularity of the English language in many parts of the world has provided a unique avenue for witnessing. As English-speaking Christians, we should not miss this chance. Because of their great evangelistic influence, EELCs have become a major emphasis for International Messengers.
The Family EELC is a spin-off of our traditional EELCs where the whole family can now come and have the camp experience. The camps have a day care, a VBS program, a teen English camp, and an Adult English camp going on simultaneously. This allows American children and teens to be involved in reaching their peers cross-culturally while the adults are doing the same.
The method of ministry is based on building relationships in a friendly camp environment. Each day at the camp, each team member will lead a conversational English class, a Bible study, and a conversation time in a small group setting. The remainder of the day is spent building friendships during free time, meals and special evening events.
Children’s Ministry: During the time that the teens and adults meet throughout the day, the children will be meeting in a separate location. The team members will have their own schedule which will include worship time, Bible stories, outdoor activities, games, crafts and other activities.
The campers are generally a mixture of young children to senior citizens. They come to learn English through conversation with North Americans, and to enjoy the fun, relaxed atmosphere of the camp with their family.
