South Asian Outreach

Season: Summer 2024 (not published)

Date: May 20 - July 31, 2024

Description: This will NOT be a typical Manhattan experience; your ministry time will be spent in Jackson Heights, Queens, one of the most diverse zip codes in the US, which feels very much like living overseas. Reach South Asians through ESL classes and church planting. We will train you in how to teach ESL and you will quickly be a classes assistant or lead teacher primarily among South Asian people groups. We will also support you in sharing the Gospel within a South Asian context, then invite you into a weekly rhythm of evangelism and community engagement with our church planting team. We will train you in simple church multiplication principles and invite you to be a part of local house church meetings and discipleship opportunities in people's homes. Other ministry opportunities include children's park ministry outreach and help with our children's after school program. Opportunities to lead musical worship also available.
