In order to reach the community around us, we have partnered with Arrive Ministries and the Hospitality Center for Chinese. With their heart for serving and welcoming immigrants, refugees, and Chinese students/families, we recognize a direct connection between our vision and their ministries – with the ultimate goal of showing them who Christ is. There are many ways you can volunteer with either ministry – click their website links below to find out more information or visit our events page!
Arrive is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to the cause of the refugee and immigrant. They empower local churches to welcome and serve displaced refugees who resettle in Minnesota. They are an Affiliate Ministry (subsidiary corporation) of Transform Minnesota, and an affiliate of World Relief (U.S.) an international humanitarian organization headquartered in Baltimore, MD.

The Hospitality Center for Chinese:
The Hospitality Center for Chinese (HCC) aims to serve the Chinese student and scholar community at the University of Minnesota. HCC grew out of a desire to not only provide practical services to the Chinese but also express hospitality and love through friendship and cultural exchange. Originally, services included Friendship Meals and Host Families; now they have expanded to include English classes, free furniture services, recreational outings and other activities, free Wi-Fi and ping-pong at China Place and connecting new students with temporary host homes during the first week after arrival.
