GoTEN's Training Center is located in central Phoenix surrounded by refugees from Afghanistan, Myanmar, Iraq, Somalia, and many other countries. Not only can you be trained in how to relate to people from other countries, you can practice what you learn among our neighbors.
The first step in training is to get connected at the GoTEN Training Center in Phoenix. At the training center, you will meet refugees learning English, sewing, and job skills. It's a perfect place to meet legally resettled refugees and make a connection that will give you a new ministry context.
Refugees have just a few months to become self-sufficient. Speaking English is a felt need and refugees are ready to learn. While refugees are learning English, we train the Church to share stories of hope with new connections made at the GoTEN Training Center.
Jesus said, "No one can come to me unless the Father first enables him to come." (John 6:44) We do not trade English for Truth. We make connections, communicate Truth and look for the person of peace that is open to the message and is ready to enter into a discipleship relationship. Discipleship is a journey, and we are ready to walk with you on it.
