"May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us, that your ways may be known on earth, your saving power among all nations." Psalm 67:1-2
Because we have been sovereignly placed in a college town, we have the privilege of having thousands of international students in our community and on our campuses, many of whom come from regions of the world with little to no access to the great hope of Jesus. Statistics say that more than 80% of internationals are never invited into an American home. We desire to alleviate the shameful statistic. We diligently seek to connect to international students because we love them, want to develop friendships with them, and ultimately want them to know about the saving love and grace of Jesus Christ. Would you be interested in being “paired” with an international student to help be their American family/friend and make their time here feel more like home? If so, we have multiple opportunities for you to connect through trips to Wal-Mart, tailgate parties, various holiday events, and anything else you choose to do to make “your” student feel welcomed in Tuscaloosa.

Each month we pray for God's name to be made great among the nations. We pray for the hurting, hungry, abused, orphaned and unreached. Join us in prayer.
God has blessed us so that we can make His saving power known in all the world. We are currently supporting multiple missionary families and ministry efforts overseas, and preparing for short-term trips. If you would like to give, you can do that here.
The goal of short-term missions is long-term impact. We hope to provide opportunities for people to go into other contexts in the world, see the glory of God in ways they may have never seen before, and expand their understanding of the global purpose for which God has created them. We are committed to reaching the nations with the gospel of Jesus Christ, building people up in the faith, and launching people into Kingdom service!
