Bridges International Chicago is a caring community of Christ-followers committed to serve, promote social connections and engage in spiritual conversations with international students so that students become leaders internationally.

Serving Students

We are here to serve your needs. Whether that’s helping you understand American culture, how to ride the CTA, buying winter clothes, visiting a local church, or practicing English, etc. We are here for you!

Social Connections

Our events are designed for you to find a community of caring friends during your stay here in the US.

Spiritual Resources

During your stay in the US you will be exposed to many different cultures, ideas, and people. It’s our desire to provide a non-threatening environment where international students can grow in their faith, learn the Biblical Worldview, focusing on the person and teachings of Jesus Christ.
