The International Link serves international visitors who come to Augusta area campuses for study, research, and military training. The International Link exists as a non-profit, interdenominational Christian organization working through volunteers from local churches to serve international guests in the Central Savannah River Area. The International Link is the only organization of its kind in the CSRA.
During any week, over 40 volunteers and the staff are involved in English classes for international visitors, Bible studies, and times of mentoring new believers, as well as coordinating the outreach to internationals in the area. The ministry of “Link” continues thanks to a number of Christian volunteers helping with English classes, Bible studies, rides to events, hosting dinners, delivering furniture and serving in many other ways.
In 2012, there were over 125 internationals in the English classes. Bible studies are held each week for women, men and older monolingual speakers. The international visitors include atheists, Hindus, Muslims and others from 55 nations. Someday those from “every nation, tribe, people and language” will be standing before the throne of God worshiping Him alone.
