International Student Ministry Trip

In just a couple of weeks I will be leading a team of young adults to work at an international student retreat in Charleston, SC. Our trip takes us into a unique opportunity to engage with international students and scholars from Clemson University. We will be assisting the ministry of Friends of Internationals and their leader Jon Varner.

This is an exciting ministry. We will assist the group by helping with meals, speaking English with students, and touring a plantation and historical Charleston as we help guide students through the cultural issues they may encounter. We really want to help students understand Christianity and of course, we hope to invite them to visit us here in New York.  Upon returning we will evaluate if we can begin to launch a ministry to international students here on Long Island.  Here is an older but well done video about Friends of Internationals that shows the full scope of this ministry.
