Team Members Needed: Urban Muslim Outreach

Description: The main job will be as an English as a Second Language teacher among adults. Through your role as a teacher, you will meet many, build relationships with them, and have opportunities to share the gospel with them, their friends, and their families. It is our desire that you enter this situation as an open learner, willing to hear about their culture, faith, and language. At the same time you are learning about their faith, you can seek opportunities to share yours. Personnel will be ESL teachers in the downtown area. It would be helpful to have some teaching experience. 20+ hours will be spent in the community teaching or spending time with students in shops or homes. 

Your first stop will be a joint orientation with other Nehemiah Teams. Learning the skills needed to carry out your assignment as well as team building will fill these first few days. Your team will fly to your final destination for the summer. Following your ministry time you will return to the US for a joint debrief...sharing all God has done over the summer
