Internationals Ministries

Visit Community Site

CBF field personnel, churches and partners are involved in ministries to internationals  — refugees, immigrants, international students. They are helping to meet not only the physical needs, but also the emotional and spiritual needs, as newcomers search for a sense of safety and place of belonging. Fellowship Baptists are welcoming the stranger and offering hospitality to those who are often lonely, overwhelmed and seeking better life.  

"In their new country, new situation, and with new found friends, [internationals] can hear a clear presentation of God's love through believers’ actions and words,"said Shelah Acker, one of CBF’s field personnel. "Imagine how amazing it would be if the first people to reach out to [internationals] when they arrived in a new land were Christians demonstrating the love of Christ.”
