Northstar Church Network


English as a Second Language
(ESL) Ministry NorthStar Church Network helps training church members and leaders so they can begin ESL ministries in their church as an outreach program. Workshop training is held for teachers of ESL twice each year. Skills and methods are taught to prepare teachers for the classroom. The manual, Teaching English Language Learners The Good News, tasks ESL teachers to not only teach English, but to share the Good News of Jesus Christ through word and deed. Many churches are dedicated to this ministry because it not only helps people who live in the community, but it also provides a way to share the good news of Jesus with the international community.

The next ESL Teacher Training Sessions will be held on Saturdays, October 11 and October 18, 2014 at Ox Hill Baptist Church in Chantilly.  Please note individuals MUST participate in both both sessions to complete the training. Registration is due by September 30. Download registration form.
