Since 1998, the Center for Christian Education, located in Martin, Slovakia, has been a place where people of all ages can learn and experience the love of Christ in this post-communist part of the world. New Heights has had the privilege of partnering with them in a variety of ways, including sending our first short-term mission team in 2007.
Partnering with our friends at the Center for Christian Education, we’ll be spending 2 weeks (June 20 – July 8) in Martin, Slovakia. During our time there, we’ll be teaching conversational English to high school students at the bilingual Lutheran High School (first week), and citizens from the surrounding area (second week), and serving and encouraging our friends at the CCE and the local church. In addition, we’ll have the opportunity to take part in the celebration of the first graduating class, as well as 20 years of ministry through the Center for Christian Education.
While our hope is that we’ll show Christ’s love in all that we say and do, the Serving Slovakia team has two main purposes. First, we want to connect with the Slovak people in relevant ways (through conversational English classes), so they’ll be open to hearing the Good News of Jesus Christ. Second, we hope to be an encouragement to our friends at the Center for Christian Education, who faithfully serve and love the people of Slovakia in Christ’s name.
