Serving orphans and “street kids” growing up in poverty

Calvary University’s Intercultural Studies, Education, and TESOL studies programs are teaming up to provide a conversational English program at Cuatro Christian Academy in the Philippines in the summer of 2020!

Cuatro is part of Kids International Ministry (KIM), a dynamic, Gospel-centered ministry that has specialized in serving orphans and “street kids” growing up in the poverty stricken areas around Manila.  Orphans, street-kids, and the children of Philippine believers study together in this unique environment nurtured by a committed Christian community.

Calvary faculty and staff recently visited KIM, stayed in their guest housing, and had the joy of interacting with Cuatro students at KIM’s orphan home.   We are EXCITED to take KIM up on this opportunity to serve.

We will be working primarily with students in the upper grades.  These students are taught in a dual-language environment, but need to have their conversation and pronunciation skills sharpened.  Your involvement could be a step in helping these students have opportunities outside of high school that can lift them out of poverty.  You will also have plenty of opportunity to interact with the children at the orphanage itself, as our group will provide devotionals and activities for these children as part of our service.

Our TESOL studies program at Calvary will be working with Cuatro to design the curriculum.   If you are willing to be trained in how to effectively lead a conversation group, and to raise the necessary support, we would love to have you apply!  Space will be limited to 12 total, with priority given to Education, TESOL studies and Intercultural Studies students.

Community Health Evangelism (CHE) addresses the root causes of poverty, disease, and spiritual darkness by training local leaders to share the gospel and mobilize community action.

Vital biblical faith is nurtured during every step. CHE integrates the physical and spiritual, revealing the practical power of Christ. CHE is a proven, practical, and multipliable strategy for ministry.

There are differences between small villages and large urban spaces, however, the same CHE principles taught in this seminar can be applied to affect local change within our city. Neighborhood Transformation occurs when neighbors get to know each other, and dream together about ways to improve the place they live in.  The local church can be involved as a good neighbor.  If you have wondered about how your church can be more engaged in the neighborhood where it is located, please join us. This Vision Seminar will address how your church can affect its neighborhood by engaging with the community and leveraging local resources to enable the community to achieve its own goals.

These sessions are highly interactive and designed for people wanting a brief but thorough introduction to CHE. After completion of this Vision Seminar, participants will have the knowledge and tools to introduce CHE to other individuals, church groups, or organizations. Individuals who want to learn how they can implement CHE in the field are encouraged to enroll in the Training of Trainers (TOT1) course.

Join Calvary University in India May 19-June 1, 2019!

Calvary University has a long standing tradition of hosting and training students from India. Only a few short years ago one of those students lead several summer ministry teams to his home country. Now another one of our students is opening the door for a more long-term relationship between Calvary and India.

India is home to 1.4 billion people, only 2.2% of which have a knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Most believers live in the densely packed urban areas leaving many villages with little to no witness of who Jesus is.  Local pastors work hard to reach these surrounding villages.  However, they face a mountainous task in reaching everyone. Of 2,554 people groups, 2,290 (89.7%) remain unreached with the gospel (Joshua Project)  Many of these groups still do not have the Word of God in their own languages.

India is a location rich with history and deeply entrenched in the History of Missions as many of the early pioneers of the Modern Missions Movement, folks like William Carey, Adoniram Judson and others set out to reach this richly diverse area with the gospel. However, India remains a place of great need, especially in the poorer village areas.  Hinduism is the dominant religion and recently the government has become increasingly hostile to Christian activities.

Next Summer the Burnham Center for Global Engagement is offering a two week mission trip to India. Faculty, staff, students and friends are welcome to join us for two weeks of ministry. We will be focusing on supporting the work of indigenous pastors through training and children’s activities. We will also be working on a project to complete construction on a local church. This project will require $3000.00 for the material costs.

 

For more information about joining us in India or helping with the construction project contact Joshua Paxton, Director of the Burnham Center for Global Engagement.
