Since moving to Germany in January 2008, I have tried and tested a number of different forms for outreach, many of which are very valuable. One of these however, which has really proving itself is TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language).
It didn't take long however to discover that there are very limited Bible based resource available for teaching British English and hence I started to develop my own lessons as well as researching and collecting currently available resources.
The Bible says “Go and therefore make disciples of all nations….” Matt 28:19, When we read this firstly we think of going to other non-English speaking countries, such as I did coming to Germany. However what I have also learned is the TEFL is a really great resource for evangelism in English speaking countries too.
“Don’t begin by travelling to some far off place to convert unbelievers. And don’t try to be dramatic by tackling some public enemy. Go to the lost, confused people right here in the neighbourhood. Tell them the kingdom is here…Don’t think you have to put on a fund-raising campaign before you start. You don’t need a lot of equipment. You are the equipment, and all you need to keep going is three meals a day… This is a large work I’ve called you into, but don’t be overwhelmed by it. It is best to start small. Give a cool cup of water to someone who is thirsty, for instance. The smallest act of giving or receiving makes you a true apprentice. You won’t lose out on a thing.” The Message, Matthew 10:5
God has literally sent the World to our doorstep! What a wonderful opportunity for the Church to obey Christ’s command to “make disciples of all nations” without ever leaving home. This is the main purpose for this page, to make available information and resources for both people wanting to start an English speaking ministry in an English speaking country or for those needing resources in non-English speaking countries.
This page is simply here to help provide some tools for reaching the world with the gospel.
