Part of the mission of the church is to carry the message of Jesus Christ to our community and beyond. Here are some of the missionaries we support prayerfully and financially.
Dick & Maudine Ady — World English Institute
Dick is founder and director of the World English Institute (WEI). He and Maudine have worked diligently in this ministry since 1989. In addition to providing Bible teaching materials for use by missionaries and individuals, Dick leads several mission campaigns each year to foreign nations.
What is WEI?
World English Institute is God’s evangelistic tool that is available to every church and individual Christian in the world. Its mission is the mission of Christ. He came “to seek and to save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10). It is the mission that Jesus gave the apostles when he said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).
Become a WEI Teacher
Using your computer/tablet/cell phone, your Internet connection, and WEI’s teaching website, you can teach the Good News to people in all of the world’s 203 nations.
Approximately 6000 people visit the WEI teaching website each month to study the English language because it is free. Each month over 800 of these people register and return the introductory lesson and need to be claimed by a teacher. WEI uses lessons from the Bible to illustrate the accompanying lesson on English grammar. You do not need to be a grammar expert to be a teacher. The grammar lessons are graded automatically.
