What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Brazil camp

Restoration Ministries exists to transform underprivileged children and their communities through the good news of Jesus Christ, equipping them to serve. We have a great need for native English speakers to teach and practice English with students in our English School. We offer free classes to kids in the slums, and additionally have started a Business-as-Mission offering fee-based English classes to adults who can afford them. Our curriculum is Bible-based, engaging in transformational teaching and discipleship, while helping students move towards personal and professional growth.

Requirements:
*Must be a US Citizen or US Permanent Resident.

College student or graduate. A major in Education, English, Intercultural Studies, TESOL, or Youth Ministry, is preferred but not required, depending on the class format teacher/intern will be involved.

Some experience with language teaching is helpful, and some ministry teaching experience as well (Sunday School, VBS, Bible clubs, Bible study, Small groups, etc.) We are looking for someone who will build relationships, is evangelistically oriented, motivational, interested in learning and teaching language, and flexible.

Responsibilities:
There are different English class formats and they require different skills, therefore the type of class the teacher/intern will be involved depends on his/her competences and knowledge. Most all teachers/interns will be able to:

  • Assist local Brazilian teachers in English classes
  • Help to plan, organize, and execute ‘immersion classes’ that help students practice language based on real-world scenarios
  • Lead content-specific classes in English, such as Bible studies, cooking, or craft classes (there are many class theme possibilities)
  • Help to lead, organize, and execute school events
  • Attend teacher staff meetings
  • Fulfill teaching procedures and responsibilities (reports, feedback, homework, projects, etc.)
  • Assist in other RM Ministry areas when English classes are not in session such as Camp California, Agita (children program), home visits, events, evangelism, etc.
  • Depending on your skills and experience, we welcome you to develop a special project during your time in Brazil.
  • To lead our "Core English Classes" a TESOL (EFL/ESL) major (graduate or student) is required or language teaching experience.

Language Used: Portuguese, English

Living Environment:
Teachers/interns will live either in church dorms or in a family home, depending on availability. If living at the church, the person will be responsible for cooking their own food. Groceries are within walking distance, and the kitchen is stocked with all needed supplies. If living with a family, the individual will adjust to the family routine and/or cook your own food if it is needed.

Working Environment:
The purpose of this internship is to mobilize teachers/interns into a life of mission. The teacher/intern will be given encouragement on soul care and necessary support on teaching and ministry areas by Restoration Ministries leadership.

The English school course schedule is from the first week of February to the last week of June, and the first week of August to the second week of December. The month of July, we offer specific optional classes through the school break.

Teachers/ interns are expected to arrive at least 5 days early for orientation and training.

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

The two words that best describe WorldVenture’s vision for the future are “training” and “missions.” New opportunities are arising to prepare leaders for ministry here and around the world. Brazil is establishing its place as a major missionary-sending country and WorldVenture is helping train Brazilians to go forth and expand the harvest for Christ. WorldVenture has been working in Brazil since 1946.

Training debriefing
All interns will be assigned a pre-field mentor who will help coach them through the pre, on, and post-field journey. This typically involves connecting by phone or Skype every few weeks to walk through basic pre-field ministry topics like raising support, safety, ministering cross-culturally ,etc. as well as providing prayer support and guidance through logistics. The intern's mentor will also setup a time to debrief and follow-up after their internship.

Mission Trip Offered By WorldVenture

Billions of people don’t know Jesus. We’re not okay with that.

More than words, they are a reminder on the wall of our main office of why we do what we do. Since 1943, God has used thousands of WorldVenture workers and partners to impact millions with the good news.
We plant churches, build clinics, educate children, train leaders, provide disaster relief, combat injustice, foster the arts, and serve the poor with economic development…in Jesus name and to make disciples.
We recruit, train, and send disciples of Jesus throughout the world who sense Gods call to give their lives to share the gospel with people who have yet to hear it. And we partner with multitudes of Christ-following disciples in engaging the world for gospel impact.
Join us!
