InterFACE Ministries is a national nonprofit organization of Christians dedicated to serving the international student community.
InterFACE networks international students and scholars with culturally sensitive Americans who enjoy cross-cultural friendships and the open exchange of ideas. Just as computers need to interface in order to communicate, we from around the world should be encouraged to connect with one another to learn more about our world and our Creator. As a Christian organization, InterFACE advocates purity of motives, clarity in purpose, and honesty in intention. Our philosophy is to encourage mutual dialogue, as summed up in the words from the Bible, "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope you have. But do this with gentleness and respect." All InterFACE activities are open to international students, scholars, and their families regardless of race, nationality, or religious preference.
