Thanksgiving Meal Host

Add some international flavor to your Holiday celebration by inviting an international student or two (or more!) to share your holiday meal!

Thanksgiving gives us the opportunity to share more than an American tradition. We get to show thanks to God for His love, provision and faithfulness. We can share this tradition with others!

Many international students are willing to get involved in American culture, providing a great opportunity to demonstrate the love of Christ and make a new friend.

We encourage you to invite students to participate in the meal and other family traditions. These can include preparing the meal, watching a parade or sharing what you’re grateful for.

We will connect you with your student(s) beforehand and encourage you to arrange transportation.

Interacting with international students

We have a simple process to get involved:

  1. Complete the application below with a ministry reference
  2. Submit a background check application (click on the green icon)
  3. We will review your submission and pair you with a student(s)
