Growing Participator Approach

Welcome to ESL Connexus

(ESL Connexus and Migros Aid Indy partner to help teach refugees English!)

Our Mission: 

ESL Connexus is dedicated to bringing the nations together through language, culture, and compassion. This mission will be accomplished primarily through language learning, cultural immersion, and outrageous acts of compassion.

Language Learning

Language learning is critical in building community between strangers. If you can't understand and communicate with a person, you will remain strangers. There will always be a distance between you. If you are brave enough, dedicated enough, and compassionate enough, you will either teach the outsider your language, or you will learn the outsider's language. This slow moving, humbling, and an often painful process of language learning is the perfect friendship and community builder. ESL Connexus provides the Growing Participator Approach to learning a language. All you need is someone to learn with and a heart of compassion.

Cultural Immersion

Cultural immersion is critical in building community between strangers. ESL Connexus provides cultural immersion through Beyond Bethany Tours to the land of the prophets. These international excursions focus on cultural training, spiritual development, and outrageous acts of compassion. Allow Beyond Bethany Tours to tailor the perfect trip to the land of the prophets for your family, church, or small group. These trips focus on walking in the footsteps of the prophets in Jordan, Israel, and Egypt. Each trip focuses on bringing faith to life through spiritual pilgrimages to ancient and holy sites found in scriptures. Watch your faith and understanding of the scriptures come alive as you begin to understand the Middle Eastern culture. Experience faith in action bringing emotional, physical, and spiritual healing through outrageous acts of compassion to those in need.

Project Outrageous Love

"Faith, Hope, and Love Abide, But The Greatest of These is Love..."

1 Corinthians 13

We will be changing our name to Project Outrageous Love because love never fails and love trumps every other virtue. We will continue to operate in Jordan to provide more sports equipment to schools and sports camps for kids. We are also working to partner with a smaller NGO working rurally and possible future projects in the hospital system, focusing on ALL refugees and people living in Jordan. If anyone feels burdened to get involved with our projects, financially or by taking a trip to Jordan, please send us a PM. Thank you all for your continued support! To read more, click HERE.
