Local Global Involvement

Sign-up here by clicking: CulEX Sign-up form

We desire to send out many of our people to unreached people groups. At the same time, we believe that it starts right here in Lubbock, Texas! It makes no sense to go to the ends of the earth if we aren’t going to our neighbors first. That is one of the reasons why we started the Cultural Exchange. The CulEx is a partnership with the International Cultural Center at Texas Tech University. We host international students in our home for meals, become their American family, and help them learn how to live in our country well.

Expectations for the Cultural Exchange:

  1. We will pair you with a student based on the information you give us in the sign-up form.
  2. Have them in your home or include them into an activity that your family is doing at least once a month.
  3. There is no duration of the Cultural Exchange. The goal is to befriend them and that they become a part of your family.
  4. Overall, the ask isn’t that you would add one more thing to your life but that you would include your international student into your rhythms of life and the things you already do.
