In Brazil there were numerous students last summer who made a determined commitment to live a better life with Christ and grow in intimacy with Christ. In Eurasia there were a significant number of non-Christians who heard God’s message for the first time ever. And in Portugal there are eight new Christ-followers who participated in a TeachBeyond summer English camp. These stories, and countless others like them, happened because a team of caring, committed individuals invested their time to teach conversational English at a summer camp, loving and mentoring the campers who participated.
Short-term mission trips offer significant opportunities for churches to engage in God’s work in the world. TeachBeyond promotes short-term mission opportunities in which individuals can engage in sharing the Good News and partnering to build God’s Kingdom in locations around the world. However, the opportunity for a short-term team from a single church is a unique opportunity offered by TeachBeyond Informal Education Language Services. Church teams who have led English camps share how the experiences not only encouraged spiritual growth among the participants, but they also strengthened the congregation’s commitment to missions by allowing the entire church to support the team and learn from their shared experiences.
Our English Camps are designed for short-term teams from churches across North America and the UK to build a lasting relationship with the people they teach in a week-long conversational English camp. In 2018 we will facilitate 27 English camps in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Eurasia, France, Germany, Moldova, Serbia, Greece, The Philippines, Portugal, and countries in Central and Southeast Asia. Our vision is to have 40 camps by the year 2020.
Can you help us get the word out about this incredible opportunity for impact? Tell your church about TeachBeyond’s English Camps and invite them to consider sending a team to participate in sharing God’s love with people around the world.
