Global Engagement Opportunities
Psalms 96:3 says to “Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the Peoples!” The nations that the Lord has called us to love are right here in Seattle. International students, immigrants, refugees, and business owners from countries around the world come to live in Seattle each year. We—you and me—can be intentional to love these neighbors by inviting them into our lives and simply sharing God’s goodness with them. This not only impacts how they know God, but it transforms our hearts to align with the Lord’s love for the nations.

Eigo Café is a free English program that helps Japanese students practice their English with native English speakers! This is a weekly 1-hour English conversation group based on the school quarter that blesses Japanese people by providing conversation partners and proven curriculum. We are currently looking for conversation partners for Winter quarter starting with the new year. Watch this video and check out www.eigocafe.org for more info.
Sunday Brunch is a monthly gathering in the University district that seeks to provide a space for food and fellowship discussing various cross-cultural life topics. It is our hope that over the experience of cooking, eating, and conversation that natural, yet intentional, connections would form between people from different cultures around the world. This is a great opportunity to serve and love the nations in our city.
Short-Term Global Engagement Trips 2019:
The Hallows Church will be partnering with a few organizations and overseas churches this year to send teams across the globe in hopes to strengthen and encourage the local church and support church planting efforts. We will engage with varying communities to share the love of Christ and strengthen ties to the local ministry for long-term disciple-making opportunities. These trips are designed for members of faith to gain exposure to another culture where God is at work and transform the way they live their lives at home while giving their time and talents abroad. More info coming soon!
May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, Selah, that your way may be known on earth, your saving power among all nations. Psalms 67:1-2
