Briggs Center for Faith & Action


In collaboration with MCAEL, the Briggs Center offers a comprehensive, free ESL (English as Second Language) program. Established in 1998, we serve approximately 310 students from 49 countries meeting in 15 clusters weekly. An able volunteer teaching staff gives devoted instruction to students from around the world. We also assisted Hope For Helena (Arkansas) by providing new books to children, many of whom have never owned a book, and as a result of conversations with the Briggs Center, the Korean Cultural Institute, an outreach of the Alpha Community Church, has launched a program of language and cultural growth for second and third generation Korean Americans.

Open enrollment:  You can register at any time; there are no requirements to register at the beginning of a session.
