Language Exchange Volunteer Orientation


Last summer, four churches in New Brighton came together to serve in a Compassion Medical and Dental Clinic. Some of our Spanish-speaking neighbors who attended the clinic said they would really like English classes and that is when the conversation about Language Exchange began. Language Exchange hopes to be a continued multi-church initiative that seeks to unite believers and communities.
