Teaching English Second Language TESL Missions

Christian missions TESOL specialists are an invaluable part of the body of Christ. Not only giving the gift of new forms of communication to speakers of other languages, these priceless teachers offer the gift of friendship . . . and most importantly the gift of amazing grace.

Whether you want to work with immigrants to help them further their education or simply communicate better with the world around them or hope to teach those in foreign lands the infinite gift of education, TESOL missionaries do a world of good . . . in any part of it. The gift of the English language can help immigrant families fit in abroad and can help those in third world countries better communicate with missionaries and aid workers.

From missions here at home to those a world away, the following is a list of Christian missions TESOL related to help you locate those who might be in need of your talents and time.
