Ministry in English has a significant role to play. It presents itself as a fantastic place to start from though not necessarily a place where we end up at. English-speaking ministry becomes a beacon where people of all languages but with some proficiency in English are able to gather, enjoy fellowship and grow in a loving Christian community. Many of these places are simply not large enough or do not have the resources to have congregations in many different languages but English, the language of commerce, aviation and increasingly education becomes a valuable tool in the hands of God for mission at this time.

In the same way that the Pax Romana created an ideal context for the Gospel to spread in first century Europe and the Middle East, today English creates huge opportunities for people travelling for work, education, relaxation, migration or for other reasons.
