Cornerstone University is establishing a Michigan program to teach English as a Second Language. Cornerstone's Dr. Michael Pasquale (pas-KAL), Assistant Professor of English. "It's a great outreach ministry for international people in the area. It's a way to meet a very practical need in their lives. The best way to evangelize is to build relationships and to teach English, it's meeting a very basic need. The Christian community reaches out by meeting this basic need then they are much more open to the Gospel." Pasquale says the program begins at a conference next month, under the theme "Heart for the World". "They are going to talk about how to connect a church with newly arrived people. How to deal with pronunciation issues, what curriculum would you use in the church, methods to use, more of a philosophy of ESL and ministry."
