International Students Learn About Christianity
The King’s Academy has a Bible class specifically designed for international students with little to no knowledge of the Bible, and additionally looking to help them improve in their understanding and grasp of the English language. This class consists of Chinese and Japanese students, with most of them never hearing of Jesus before arriving on campus. After reading through the Gospel of John, watching The Jesus Film, and completing other various tasks related to vocabulary associated with Christianity, the ESL Bible class traveled to Sevier Heights on the afternoon of October 9, 2014.
While at Sevier Heights, Andy Langston escorted the students and Mr. Fultz around their main campus. The students listened to ministry leaders in various locations, including topics such as the nature of the Church, children’s ministry, counseling, music, youth ministry, small groups, and baptism. The international students were able to gather around the baptistery at SHBC, and witness Youth Minister Eric Palmer discuss baptism from within the baptistery. One Chinese student even asked the question “how do I become a Christian?” After touring through the different ministry destinations, SHBC treated the students to Chick-Fil-A cookies, a student ministry t-shirt, and a devotional book. As the old saying goes, “a good time was had by all.”
