Bridges International

Bridges International exists to serve international students on campuses all over the United States.

Contact: Blake Ackerson

There are close to 1,000,000 international students studying in the US and an estimated 80 percent of these never set foot in an American home while visiting. The avenues that Bridges International provides to reach out to students are service activities, social networking and spiritual resources. Bridges International has seen that due to cultural barriers these international students have little interactions with Americans. This is a great chance for us to serve and love them as they stay in the United States.

GBC specifically supports this ministry on the campuses of Rice University and the University of Houston.

Ways to Serve:
- Befriend students at our weekly events
- Open up homes for small gatherings
- Provide a home cooked meal for weekly events
- Connect individuals or families to "adopt" an international student for a year
