TEACHER/ADMINISTRATOR AND VOLUNTEERS FOR ESL PROGRAM

Our neighbors include many of Latino heritage, immigrants and refugees from Southeast Asia and the Middle East. Staffing is the most important part of ESL – people who know Christ and have hearts of love to reach out to others in his name. Resurrection is seeking a Teacher/Administrator, and several volunteers. No prior ESL experience is necessary.
