International Fellowship House
MISSION AND VISION STATEMENT:
Vision: To see international students from all cultures and religions thriving academically, socially, and spiritually by experiencing God in a tangible way through a welcoming community that is centered around the life changing principles of Jesus.
Mission: To invite others into the good life. At the IFH, we find the good life through cultivating a community that encourages people to value, respect and serve one another, regardless of their race, religion or beliefs. This atmosphere empowers people to satisfy their basic human desire to belong and to be loved.
Problem being solved?
Today, there are over one million international students in America and the numbers keep rising. These students are the next generation of global leaders. But how will they lead? Will they lead with the humility, compassion, and kindness that Jesus teaches us or will they lead by the world’s standards?
How are you solving it?
We believe that experiencing God in a tangible way through a life giving community will produce leaders that value love and humility over authority. Thus producing leaders that lead by example and use their influence for the good of others.
Why are you qualified?
The International Fellowship House (IFH) has been an active community since 1966. The IFH is located in the heart of Boston and operates as a home away from home for international students. For over 50 years, we have provided this life giving community to thousands of students from all over the world. Many of these students are in high profile positions today: doctors, lawyers, tech industry and start up companies.
What is the urgency?
As the growing population of international students in the USA rises, we are seeing students lives changed and challenged through our community model. The time to make a lasting impact is now.
