The name TeachBeyond best captures in two simple words our understanding of the Great Commission in Matthew 28, in which Jesus says, “Go and make disciples of all nations…teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you.” The word beyond suggests crossing geographic and cultural boundaries. It also indicates our commitment to teaching beyond one-dimensional, utilitarian forms of education to a comprehensive, holistic form that fosters personal, transformational growth, and enduring social benefit. Our name reflects both our organizational mission as well as our challenge to Christians to think beyond their current context, to encourage their growth as transformational educators, to inspire them to get involved, and to help them go where God is leading them.
God has called TeachBeyond to be an agent of Holy Spirit empowered transformation among those whom we serve: educators, learners, organizations, and communities.
Educators will be effective models of an integrated life. Learners will be holistically transformed and transformational. Organizations will achieve optimal mission effectiveness. Communities will experience redemptive renewal. (For a more complete understanding of what this means, you can download the TeachBeyond Organizational Purpose document.)

We wholeheartedly desire to serve our Father’s world, to love Jesus
Christ, and to see individuals and societies transformed by His Spirit
As followers of Jesus we are an international organization providing transformational education to children and to adults. We provide teaching and learning services to all regardless of gender, ethnicity, or religion in order to promote holistic personal growth and enduring social benefit.
TeachBeyond works with more than 30 international schools (K-12), serving the children of expatriates and Christian workers, thereby supporting world missions by training the next generation. Among these is our oldest school, Black Forest Academy, in Germany. TeachBeyond partners with more than 30 schools around the world. Some of these are TeachBeyond schools, others are quality schools owned by partnering agencies. Some are committed to introducing Christ to uninformed students from a hostile culture, while others focus on serving the needs of the international Christian workers’ community.
TeachBeyond works with national schools and school start-ups that are
committed to academic achievement, English language enrichment, and
teaching with a vision for transforming lives. Parents across the globe
desire a better education for their children, often defined as a
commitment to learning English and meeting international standards.
TeachBeyond is actively involved in helping start schools that address
these expectations. These institutions are in key locations in Europe,
Latin America, Africa, and Asia. At the core of all these initiatives is
our holistic philosophy of transformational education.
In environments as diverse as a street corner, a concert hall, or a
campsite under the stars, educators proclaim Christ in ways appropriate
to the cultural and political situation. TeachBeyond offers informal
education and equipping services to individuals, organizations, and
institutions. These services include camps and retreats, the “Godly
Play,” counseling, marriage enrichment seminars and retreats, leadership
development seminars, and continuing education. Some of this equipping
takes place in a teacher conference or seminar format in countries where
such services are not readily available. In addition, short-term
courses on issues of interest to adults from a variety of vocational
backgrounds are also offered.
ESL Language Learning

TeachBeyond sends lecturers, ESL instructors, administrators, and
professors to post-secondary institutions. We have been involved in
providing a variety of adult learning services for many years, supplying
lecturers and professors for partner organizations. New opportunities
are emerging in the fields of teacher training, Biblical and theological
studies, and the teaching of English in post-secondary institutions.
One of TeachBeyond’s newest schools is SchallWerkStadt (SWS),
a music college established in Germany for Christian musicians wishing
to serve effectively in the music industry and in the church.
