TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is a platform for ministry on foreign fields as well as here at home. Our vision is to give students the tools and experience they need to effectively teach English, and through those relationships, spread the Good News of Christ. TESOL courses are hosted each summer by Kingdom Channels.
Students who apply for this class often have plans to teach English abroad; former students of this course are using their TESOL training to work in closed regions in the Middle East. Sometimes students who take the class have no definite plans for using their training, but want to be prepared if God should call them into ministry. We strive to keep costs to a minimum since many of our students will be in service.
