Welcome to Christian TEFL

Open up a world of Opportunities

We offer accredited online TEFL courses for people looking to teach English as a foreign language either in a Christian service environment or in paid English teaching jobs worldwide.  No teaching experience is necessary; we’ll take you step-by-step through the English teaching essentials with the support of a Christian personal tutor. You’ll train through our sister site Global English – one of the most established online TESOL course providers in the UK with over 24 years’ experience and a top provider rating on TrustPilot.

We also support UK churches who want to set up ESOL projects locally through our church-based teaching ESOL packages.

As a  registered charity, we’re unique in the TEFL world as we share 100% of our profits between our mission partners and UK Christian ESOL projects. Why not get started with Christian TEFL today?
