In September 2013 Calvary Baptist Church began an English As a Second Language (ESL) ministry to help people who desire to learn or improve their ability to speak or write in English. Since then, we have trained more than 100 students from approximately 30 different countries. Our classes are available in three (3) levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. Each student is evaluated and placed in a class according to his/her level of ability. The classes are offered free of charge; however students may be encouraged to purchase a book or workbook that will greatly enhance their ability to learn English.  Trained teachers and assistant teachers help the students learn English as they also learn about and experience the love of Jesus Christ. On nights that ESL classes meet, we offer dinner and other activities for ESL students, their family members and friends:

5:00 PM Dinner for everyone (Donation requested; but not required)
6:00 PM – 7:30 PM ESL Classes — for ESL students
