ISI Friendship Partner Training
Thursdays, August 23 - September 13, 7-9 pm, Room A6
When new international students arrive in the US, they leave behind family, friends, and most everything familiar. We have the opportunity to fill some of those gaps and share the love of Christ with students. Our missions partner ISI will be leading a four-part training to equip you to be part of their Friendship Partner program and be matched with a student.
