The “English as a Second Language”(ESL) program has helped nearly 200 people to learn and improve their English skills, since its inception some ten years ago, said the Rev. Joey Tillery, minister of education and administration at First Baptist.

Classes are held at the downtown church on Wednesdays, 10:30 a.m. until noon, primarily using volunteers as teachers.

“Right now we have about 15 students from China, Vietnam, Japan, South America, Mexico and Albania,” said Jan Rogers, director of First Baptist’s ESL program.
