Cross Cultural Ministry … You Can Help!

Internationals from many nations attend First Assembly. As a destination for many International students and a resettlement location for refugees, Fort Wayne exists as a year-round setting for cross cultural ministry. There are many ways to become involved both through First Assembly and the organizations we partner with. Cross cultural training, as well as training for specific areas of ministry, is available.
