A language ministry can be one of the most important services your church offers to your community. It combines outreach, diaconal care, and educational ministries. It includes both literacy and ESL (English as a Second Language) and helps people improve their reading, writing, and speaking skills.

It's easy to get started! All you need is a place to meet, volunteer tutors, and resources like Open Door Books.

Members of the church and/or community serve as literacy tutors, usually working one-on-one or in small groups with people who are unable to read well.

Open Door Books are designed especially for adults who are just learning to read and for those who are learning English as a second language. Written at a third- to fifth-grade reading level, they're essential for language ministries or literacy programs.

Includes 69 easy-to-use activities such as creating language-experience stories, working with dialogue journals, and developing story maps. Appendices contain valuable reference materials, including lists of frequently used words, common phonics principles, and prefixes and suffixes.
