Ministry Philosophy

REACH International Athens is an outreach ministry committed to sharing the love of Christ with international students, visiting scholars and their families through the gift of hospitality. We seek to respond to felt needs and serve students in practical ways that bring definition to our Christian beliefs.

Prior to any event or activity, we clearly communicate whether the event is purely social in nature or may also include religious activities such as Bible study, etc., so students may make informed choices. In all things, we make love and respect our aim, treating others as we would like to be treated if we were guests in their homelands.

In addition, we practice servant leadership, meaning that anyone who desires to volunteer with REACH International must first demonstrate himself to be “a servant to all” in his local community of faith.   Volunteers are asked to indicate agreement with our statement of faith and to provide pastoral references. Humility and love are to be hallmarks of all that we do!
