Volunteers / Supporters

Our volunteers are local people from the local church. You may be here because you are already involved or you are thinking of becoming part of our community. We truly value the work you do in supporting our efforts with international students. If this describes you, please join in.

Our vision is to reach international students through local churches and see the different nations finding a home in them. If you are interested in making your church more international friendly, wanting to host events for international students, find new ways to engage with this ministry please get in touch.
