International Friendships

International Friendships (IFI) seeks to facilitate open doors and hospitality to incoming international students in Columbus. IFI's mission is to extend life-changing hospitality and friendship to international students out of reverence for Jesus.

Since 1979, IFI has been partnering with local churches in Columbus to befriend international college students at local universities. Through airport pickup, temporary housing, conversation partners, holiday hosting, and large community events, you are making the world feel at home.
