Friendship Families

Friendship Families

Welcome to the BCM at OCU! We have been "making friends since 1991". This is where Christ-following host friends and families can GET CONNECTED with international students to begin building a friendship and sharing cultures.

Sign up for one of our CONNECT dates and times. We will collect your information, explain expectations and take your picture. Then, later we will CONNECT you with your new international student friend! Please come prepared to immediately take your new friend out to dinner, tea, or some other fun activity of your choosing. Please contact Emily Frey if for some reason you can't make any of our events.

We will also update and list on this page seasonal BCM events and activities, in which we strongly look to our Friendship Families to participate in and help facilitate. More opportunities for language learning, cross-cultural evangelism training, and regular weekly activities will be shared at CONNECT.
