International Friendships


Your gift to International Friendships (IFI) will facilitate open doors and hospitality to incoming international students in Columbus. IFI seeks to welcome the stranger on our doorstep and help them return home with the gospel. Since 1979, IFI has been partnering with local churches in Columbus to befriend international college students at local universities. Our mission is to extend life-changing hospitality and friendship to international students out of reverence for Jesus.

Through airport pickup, temporary housing, conversation partners, holiday hosting, and large community events, you are making the world feel at home.
