International Ministries (IM) need several Volunteer Port Chaplains who can drive to and from the ships. The chaplains need to lead Bible Studies on the ships at various times. Volunteers must pass a background check for TWIC access to the ships. IM is also looking for a coordinator for the Seafarer Ministry. Please contact Gerald Burch for more information, via email or 251-661-7111.


The ILS offers beginning, intermediate and advanced English as a Second Language classes. They often offer Spanish classes as well. The Fall semester is quickly coming to an end. The Spring semester will begin in January. Contact Kim via email or 251.533.2911 to register.

The ILS currently has 105 students from 30 countries. There are currently 35 volunteers working in the ILS.

This ministry to internationals in Mobile is financially supported by gifts from MBA churches. We are deeply grateful for all financial contributions to International Ministries and for volunteers who teach and show hospitality in the Language School. Businesses, churches, and individuals are encouraged to sponsor students by giving money for language Bibles, books, and supplies. You are welcome to donate any amount, as the Lord leads. Please contact Gerald Burch or Kim Wilson if you would like to help.    

How You Can Help:
1) donate hospitality items - bottled water, tea bags, fresh bread or pastries, and K-cups
2) donate your time – We need individuals to help serve refreshments during tea time, help with office work, and teach. We also very much need childcare workers. Students with small children are not able to focus and study during class with small children in tow.
3) pray – We need prayer partners to pray for the students and teachers. Pray that God’s Glory will be made known in and through this ministry. 

Please bring the above mentioned items to the Associational office (616 Azalea Road) or contact Kim Wilson at 251.533.2911 or via email.
