God has placed Third Avenue Baptist Church in a spectacular location for international outreach--just across the street from a world class university where students from over 100 countries come each year to study.  This provides an amazing opportunity and responsibility for us as a church to share the good news of Jesus with hundreds of international students and scholars who live and work all around us.


Here are some of the main ways we try to reach out to international friends:

1. SUNDAY MORNING INTERNATIONAL CLASS - Each Sunday morning, we offer a discipleship class that previews the Sunday morning service.  We take a slow, careful look at all the songs, Scripture readings, and even the pastor's sermon notes so that difficult words and concepts can be explained and discussed.

2. FRIENDSHIP PARTNERS - Third Avenue Partners church members with international students and scholars who desire to improve their English.

3. SPECIAL EVENTS - Occasionally, Third Avenue hosts special events for international students and scholars.  Game nights, hiking trips, movie nights, even trips to Washington DC, Nashville, and Chicago -- these are just some of the ways we try to build relationships with international friends.
