PROJECT


6466-901-English Language and Ministry Center Startup

"Can you teach me English?" This is the question we hear nearly every time someone learns we are from the U.S. After hearing this question time and time again, we began to realize that God was leading us to use this felt need to meet people and share the Gospel with them. The result of this realization is the English language and Ministry Center (ELMC).

The ELMC provides English classes to young adults and professionals. It provides a venue to meet new people and build ongoing relationships with them all the while meeting a real felt need of theirs. The Bible is openly taught as part of the English language curriculum, and we seize every opportunity to share the Gospel with our students.

Funds raised for the project are used for the start-up costs of the center such as furnishing the facility and providing equipment and curriculum. Some funds are also used toward ongoing expenses such as rent, utilities, and security.

PROBLEM
The city of Labe in the Fouta Djallon mountains of central Guinea is one of the largest cities in the nation. It is also one of the major population centers for the Fulbe people, the largest ethnic group in Guinea. Labe is home to many young adults and business people who have expressed an interest in learning the English language.

VISION
The goal of the center is not only to teach English, but also to expose students to the teachings of the Bible. To this end, the Bible and Christian teachings will be integrated into the English language curriculum.

STRATEGY
It is the goal of the center to develop relationships with teams of short-term volunteers from the U.S. who can come to Labe on a regular basis to assist in the work of the center by serving as English language tutors for the students and helping in intensive English camps. The center will also be seeking the addition of an individual or family as mid-term or long-term workers to either teach at and/or direct the center on an ongoing basis.

CAPACITY
Funds raised for the project are used for the start-up costs of the center such as furnishing the facility and providing equipment and curriculum. Some funds are also used toward ongoing expenses such as rent, utilities, and security.
