Team of the Week: English in Africa (New Team!)

Are you looking a way to immediately gain access into the hearts of people who don't have access to the Good News? People all over the globe are increasingly fascinated with American culture & the English language. Come teach ESL in West Africa.

Students will be involved in ministry based out of the Grand Yoff Baptist Center in Dakar, Senegal. The center is located in one of the poorest and most densely populated neighborhoods in the city. Ministry will be multi-dimensional. Student volunteers will spend time at the center connecting with students who are learning language at our ESL center. Responsibilities include teaching English classes, leading conversation sessions, organizing fun activities for socialization and interaction, and building relationships with students. Volunteers will also be expected to spend time in the community of Grand Yoff. They will explore strategies in story-telling and evangelism, visit in homes, and build relationships with the community. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to learn basics in the local language and implement that in ministry and relationship building. There will also be room to utilize special gifts and talents of student volunteers as means for effective ministry.
