The world has come to our doorstep through the presence of international students at Old Dominion University. We are blessed that Tabernacle Church and the ODU Global Student Friendship organization invited CTR to become involved with their international student outreach ministry. Our focus has been Chinese students in particular, along with a few Koreans. We are connecting in significant ways with international students and scholars at ODU and have developed several opportunities to serve them:
- Conversation Partnerships: Many of the students are looking for friendship with Americans and for ways of improving their English skills in conversation. Our Conversation Partnerships meet both needs at one and the same time in a life-giving way. Once per week relationships are deepened in meaningful and fun ways. Please contact CTR to sign up.
- English as a Second Language Training: Throughout the year CTR members offer ESL training for international students meting every Monday evening at 6pm in the ODU Perry Library.
- International Student Bible Studies: Currently we are scheduling Bible studies for the fall semester.
