English Center Teammate

Working with University students from a wide variety of African nations who have come to Dakar to study and are seeking to develop their English speaking skills. Dakar is a city of 3 million people, situated on the furthest western tip of Africa. Very western in culture yet definitely still African in economic, political and social structures. This city hosts a huge university where the majority of students are muslim and join at a high level of education. With huge dreams and aspirations these students long to make a difference in the current status of Senegal and even beyond to their home countries. They are away from home and independent in their thinking so they are ripe for hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our team is made up of a conglomerate of 3 different Mission organization all working together for the same cause of Church planting among the university students. We currently run an English Learning Community (Center) where students come and learn basic english skills along with lots of conversation... We plan various activities and events that improve their english skills while also enhancing their knowledge of Jesus and western culture!
