What the Mission Trip Will Be Like
English teachers are needed for our Learning Centres, located in the towns of Abeche, in northern Chad.
Students are from all walks of life: farmers, merchants, soldiers, artists, teachers, doctors, engineers, and government officials. This is a great opportunity to touch different levels of society with the truth of Christ. Courses are offered for beginner through advanced levels, but we never have enough teachers to offer as many classes as are needed. Often students have to wait months to continue to the next level. Come join us to make this ministry an even more effective tool for the truth!
Each course lasts from ten to twelve weeks at a time with a break of several weeks between sessions. Other opportunities through the English program include tutoring high school students in English and participating in the English Club for advanced English speakers. A minimum commitment of four months is needed but six months to a year is even better. Knowledge of French is helpful for a more effective ministry.
Individuals, couples, a family (school-age children would need to be home schooled), and small teams of 3 or 4 are welcome for this ministry.
