There is a huge opportunity for outreach and evangelism with these students, especially in providing food, social events, and conversational English and ESL classes. You will have the opportunity to invite students into "Coastal en Espanol", a Spanish-speaking church plant within Coastal Community Church that offers ESL classes, worship in Spanish, and small group Bible studies as well as partnering with the Galveston BSM in ministry to international students who are coming to live and work right in our back yard.
