Course date: 9 Feb 2013
Time: 10am to 4pm
Venue: International Christian College, 110 St James Road, Glasgow
This course equips teachers and missionaries with an innovative method that integrates the student-centred, TESL teaching methodology in teaching the English Bible. By upholding the literary value of the English Bible, students, including non-Christians, are more engaged in learning the Bible as great literature. Teaching English through the Bible is a time-honoured way in introducing Christian concepts in various settings, including campus, mission fields, churches etc. It has proven success in creative ac...cess countries, i.e. countries where creative means are needed to do Christian work. In this full-day training, the audience will learn how to conduct mission work in a cultural sensitive way, based on an evangelistic English enhancement course (ACE course). Trainees who complete the course will be able to teach English through Bible in their own homes or at churches with confidence.
Those interested in local or overseas cross-cultural mission work, church ministers, campus workers, seminary school students, language lovers
