Ethiopia 2019 TEFL Training Team
Breaking the silence of English for the men and women who are training for Christian ministry in Ethiopia has wide implications. By Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), this team will be addressing the single biggest factor in improving the quality of pastoral and ministry training for the Ethiopian church. Although the language of education at the upper levels throughout the country is English, there is a general weakness in this area. The Ethiopia TEFL Team uses Bible-based curriculum and equips Ethiopian theological educators to also teach English using the text of Scripture that the students are already familiar with in their own languages. The particular achievements of this, the fifth TEFL team trip, are to offer four simultaneous conferences in different locations where four Ethiopian coaches will be certified as mentors to be in charge of the full range of the training program. This marks a big step in capacity-building and is a great achievement. Thank you for investing in this very strategic ministry that is providing a platform for global ministry by the Ethiopian church.
