The deadline to register was Friday, September 7th. Registration for this workshop is now closed.


It can be very difficult to adjust to life in a new country, especially when somebody doesn't know the language. Teaching English provides new ministry opportunities for churches to reach internationals in their communities with the Gospel by meeting a very real need.

  • Methods of Teaching English
  • Organizing an ESL Ministry
  • Understanding Other Cultures
  • Incorporating Biblical Materials into Lessons
  • Sharing Your Faith


The workshop will be split between training and practical exercises over two days. The dates and times for the workshop are: 

Friday, September 14, 6 pm – 9 pm and Saturday, September 15, 9 am – 6 pm. It will be held at the PSBA Offices in Federal Way.
