International Students


They serve you hamburgers. They clean your hotel rooms. You rent bicycles from them on the boardwalk. Who are they? They are internationals from all over the world who are working here in Virginia Beach for the summer season. And there are 1,700 of them!! Despite the large number, to most of our population, these individuals are almost invisible. But not to God. And not to us. We think they're spectacular examples of God's vast creativity and beauty.

Our ministry to internationals is all about building relationships that will change the world forever. Think of the repercussions. If you are a follower of Christ that longs to share His love to all nations, then consider this your opportunity.

Our ministry revolves around a Tuesday night Dinner Party called J1 Cafe that runs from mid June through mid August @ 7:00 p.m. We provide food and a safe place to gather that is close enough to the oceanfront for the internationals to walk or bike. Tuesday night, however, is only the beginning. Our ultimate goal is to get these students into your home.

God has brought the mission to you. Do you accept?
