International Student Ministries

An evening of friendly connection can be the start of a life-changing friendship with an international student studying here in Calgary. FAC partners with groups already making these connections; let us know if you’re interested providing a home cooked meal, taking a student out to a sports event, or becoming a conversation partner.


As Colombian immigrants, we have felt so blessed and loved by the Lord Jesus and by our brothers and sisters since we have been serving at FAC. We feel FAC is our home. In our small group – the first Spanish speaking group at FAC – we have had opportunities to see our sovereign God respond to our prayers.
