Host an International Student

The mission of the Dordt College International Friendship Family (IFF) Program is to celebrate and embrace diversity and cultural awareness, and to build a local support system for international students. In this program, we match a local family with an international student (or a few students, if they’d like) and the family spends time with their student about every 4-6 weeks. Families do everything from having their student over for dinner to bringing them along to their children's sporting events. We are currently in need of IFFs for five male international students. If you are interested in serving as an IFF, please contact Rebecca Tervo atRebecca.Tervo@dordt.edu or 712-722-6273.

Abuse Education

Does the subject of abuse make you feel uncomfortable?  Do you find yourself avoiding conversations of how persons around us or persons in authority over us violate those we know?  If this is true, think about how it must feel to be a child who knows firsthand what uncomfortable means.  Locked in a realm of threats to secrecy, a child who has been abused not only feels uncomfortable, but also violated, exploited, betrayed, and used.  When children are victimized to meet adult needs, their lives are changed forever.  For the sake of our kids, come and learn about abuse, grooming, predators, and pedophiles.  This training is for parents, teachers, Ministry staff, elders and deacons, pastors, Safe Church committees, medical staff, grandparents, and anyone else who wants to know about abuse.  Education on abuse is Friday, December 8, @ 1 PM or 6:30 PM.  These are repeat sessions.  Request a brochure from Judy De Wit:  educator.84@hotmail.com. to learn more and RSVP by Wednesday December 6.
