The Christian TEFL website brings both mission placements and TEFL training together in one place. Speaking about his vision for the charity, William Bradridge, founder and Course Director said:
‘We are a meeting place for Christians who want to train to teach English, and mission organisations that are waiting for people to reach out and serve, by teaching English to share the Gospel ‘
There is huge demand to learn English worldwide. In poorer locations, English is a gateway to a better future which makes the teaching of English an ideal skill for missionaries to acquire. Elsewhere, the qualification enables EFL teachers to access countries usually denied to Christian evangelists. While many of the mission placements on the CT site are overseas, there are also plenty of opportunities to teach English closer to home. Local churches offer classes to internationals within their congregations to help them integrate better into church life. Others give free English classes to immigrants and asylum seekers who would otherwise have no contact with the church.
