About

English Crossing has been building relationships with Upstate internationals since 2013 through free English classes.

As a faith based ministry, we exist to build trusting, long term relationships with local internationals through the platform of teaching English in order to reach and disciple them with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We offer free weekly adult beginner, intermediate, and advanced English classes as well as free childcare and homework help for their children at multiple locations in Spartanburg. Classes are offered weekly during the school year and bible study is available during the summer months for those that want to learn more about Jesus Christ.

English Crossing is staffed by trained, skilled, and compassionate volunteers. Many of our teachers currently teach in another setting, are retired from the teaching profession, or have taught abroad. Our childcare workers have a heart for children and all have a cleared background check.

With thousands of internationals neighbors here in the Upstate of South Carolina, there are many ways you can be on mission with us! Click here to see how you can get involved.
