“Yes, you can teach art to future Christian teachers.”

We have nine teacher-training colleges established to equip African nationals to be Christian classical teachers. All of them need to be taught art during their three-year college experience. We can use artists!

Answer from Karen in Florida, who has served with Rafiki Foundation in Nigeria and several other countries for 26 years, and is currently the Executive Director.Yes, you may teach art to future Christian teachers who in turn will reach young people in schools with a great education and Bible study. We offer this opportunity at the Rafiki Foundation in ten countries in Africa.

“Use art for evangelism and more.”

You could take art classes in overseas and witness to other art students. 

You could share the gospel outdoors using art. Draw portraits of people and show on the same picture that good works, church, etc. will not get them to heaven!

Answer from Ken, webmaster of Mission Resources.You could give lessons in art in another country if you knew the language. You could use that opportunity to share the gospel or invite your students to church just like others do using English lessons.
