English (ESL) Classes

Come and learn English with friendly, caring people!


It’s an amazing step to leave your homeland and begin a new life in the United States! Everything is different, and learning a new language can be difficult. However, learning to speak English well can help you.

In our ESL courses, you will learn about U.S. culture and customs, about the local community, and you will be part of a special group to support and encourage you on your journey.

About the ESL Teacher

Hi, my name is Bradley Clark. I’m the Impact Pastor at First Christian Church. I lead the volunteer teachers and assistants who will help you learn English better. One of my favorite Bible verses is, “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. If either of them falls down, one can help the other up” (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10). I believe any challenge in life can be made easier with trusted friends at your side.

I enjoy learning about different cultures and customs, and have travelled to several different countries: Cuba, Haiti, Honduras, and Mexico. I’ve also enjoyed getting to meet people from many different countries in our ESL classes: Brazil, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, and Vietnam (just to name a few)!

I know that traveling to and LIVING in a different country are very different! That’s why I want to help make that challenge a little easier. You’ll also find the grace, mercy, and love of Jesus Christ here at First Christian—this is a church where Jesus is for ALL people!
