Teachers and Volunteers

In Matthew, God tells us to go and make disciples of all nations. The nations come to Concord through our ESL program. Did you know that we have the largest ESL ministry in Hamilton County? Each school year, volunteers from the church and community meet at our campus on Wednesday mornings to teach an exciting blend of students from all over the globe. But these students aren’t just learning English, they’re learning about Jesus too!

Want to become a part of this exciting ministry? There are many ways to get involved in our ESL program – teach, assist, help prepare refreshments, mentor, take pictures, or organize excel spreadsheets. You can help us in the nursery by rocking babies, teaching a craft, reading a story, or supervising playtime. For more information, please contact one of the following ESL leaders:
