First Friends

The First Friends ministry matches individuals and families to MTSU international students during their time in the States. By volunteering as a First Friends partner, you can share the love of Christ by sharing your life through a meal or activity at least once a month. Simply by inviting a student into your life activities you will give them an opportunity to see true Christianity lived out, and grow opportunities for gospel conversations. Many lifelong relationships have been made through this ministry.

Service Opportunities

English Conversation Partners Dinner | Every Tuesday August - May | 6:30pm | MTSU

Volunteer are needed to come share a meal with students while allowing them to work on their conversational English. You will have the opportunity to build relationships that can grow opportunities for gospel conversations.

You can also provide a meal for 40-60+ students plus volunteers. This is a great opportunity for small groups to participate in. Some will bring the food and stay for the evening but those that cannot stay the entire time can drop off the meals. Meals are the core of the Tuesday night ministry, without churches and small groups participating to provide the meals, this ministry could not continue.
