Family Groups

IFC Family Groups provide a home environment for international students who are so far away from their own families. These groups give members an opportunity to share their lives with each other, express their needs, and serve each other.


Small groups of international students and Americans gather in American homes once a week for two to three hours in the evening. We share experiences, develop friendships, and have fun. Each week, we have a dinner together, sing songs, and study the Bible. Family Group members often hang out together after family group or at other times during the week.


If you would like to join a family group...you can CLICK HERE to give us some information...and we will have a leader in a group contact you to invite you.


You also can see below for the list of our family groups...and a photo of the leaders of that group. You can contact any group you like by yourself based on the people, the location, the day/time, or whatever your preference...or you can fill out the link above and we will find a group that we think is a good fit for you.
