Clarkston, Georgia, is one of the most diverse square miles in all of America. It is home to countless refugees from over 90 nations around the world. As they try adjusting to a completely different culture, refugees face multiple obstacles when they resettle in a new country. The Clarkston International Bible Church (CIBC) helps refugees learn how to adapt to their new home while sharing the love of Christ. Though many refugees come from nations that are closed to the Gospel, God brings the nations to us to share the Good news. Students who serve in Clarkston, will help extend ministry and influence with CIBC through English classes and small construction projects, all the while deepening relationships with the people of Clarkston.
In Wounded Knee, South Dakota, there is a confederation of seven different Native American tribes, collectively known as the Lakota people.

The demand for relief of physical needs is met only by their need for hope and restoration through the Gospel, with less than 2% of their population claiming to be Evangelical Christians. The students who serve in South Dakota have numerous opportunities to share the Gospel, teach the Lakota children at VBS, and assist with small construction projects.
