Aloha International Ministries

Season: Spring 2024 (not published)

Date: Jan. 8, 2024 - May 14, 2024

Description: Over 70% of international students coming to the U.S. never set foot inside an American's home. Several thousand students come to Oahu from all over the world to attend one of our universities, many coming from countries with the least access to the gospel. International ministries exist to joyfully lead and equip churches in welcoming, reaching, discipling, and sending international students and residents to reach the nations. Come serve for a semester, meeting international students, forming friendships, sharing the gospel, and discipling students. Activities include teaching English classes, leading Global Cafe, International Luncheon, meeting with students one-on-one, and leading fun activities around the island. The ministry is very relationally focused, and we are seeking to build relationships that can carry the weight of the gospel, so we are looking for kind-hearted and friendly students. We are also looking for boldness in sharing the gospel as well as sharing personal testimonies of God's ongoing and recent work in your life. You may choose to stay longer to help lead or participate in an international mission trip in the summer following your service. (There will be an additional cost for this trip.)
