International Students Ministry

Faith has teamed up with local universities to show the love of Christ to international students who are far from home attending college in the Dallas area. There are many ways to get involved with this ministry. 

  • Families or small groups can invite a few international students over for a meal or dessert to get acquainted and build relationships. Students are excited about the possibility of visiting an American home.  
  • International students gather most Thursdays from 4-5pm at the International Center at Dallas Baptist University for English conversation practice with Americans. This is a great time to build relationships with the students week-by-week and share your faith as the Lord leads. A number of students have come to know Christ through these relationships. Call DBU's Intensive English Program at 214-333-5488 for more information.
  • Various Bible studies take place amongst international students who are curious to know more about Christ. 

If you are interested in becoming a part of this growing and rewarding ministry, contact Mike Hillyard at   or Cheryl Eppler at  . Your loving hospitality will pave the way for the Gospel to enter the lives of international students!
