Helping Holy Land Christians

Helping holy land christians (HHLC) was founded 12 years ago by parishioners Paul Teschan, Linda Crane, and Sally Miller after they returned from St. George’s first pilgrimage to the Holy Land with a deep desire to help our Christian brothers and sisters in that part of the world. Since its founding, Helping Holy Land Christians has raised approximately $125,000, mostly for scholarships to Christian schools for the children of Christian families.

HHLC currently has a need for volunteers to teach English via computer. Originally, their English Language Learning (ELL) work was focused on helping scholarship students with their English. ELL has morphed into helping young professionals, such as tour guides, develop better English language skills. To learn more or to volunteer, contact Bob Schwartz at 615-419-9615 or robertrschwartz@yahoo.com.
