In 2007, 22 people from New Heights Church headed to Martin, Slovakia, unsure of what was ahead of them. They found a beautiful country, gracious people, the adventure of a lifetime, and a newfound understanding of who God is and how He works in the lives of His people, everywhere.
Serving Slovakia is a short-term mission experience for individuals 18 years of age or older (individuals younger than 18 may be considered if traveling with a parent), that provides an opportunity to see God at work while sharing the love of Christ with the people of Slovakia. This is an exciting and fulfilling way to see how the body of Christ works and how God can use you to make a difference in the lives of others.
Purpose of the Trip
Partnering with our friends at the Center for Christian Education, (cce.sk), we’ll be spending 2 weeks (July 3-19) in Martin, Slovakia. During our time there, we’ll be teaching conversational English to Slovak citizens from the surrounding area, as well as serving and encouraging our friends at the CCE and the local church. Training meetings, which take place prior to departure, will include training for the English classes, spiritual preparation, and cultural/travel information. No prior EFL/ESL experience is required – just the ability to carry on a conversation!
Our team will consist of 35 people: 3-5 EFL teachers; 25-30 conversational “coaches”.
