Volunteering with International Students

Okoboji Volunteer Info Sheet

The nations of the world are coming to Okoboji every summer!

In 2019 over 500 International students came to Okoboji to work in the Okoboji area at Arnolds Park, restaurants, marinas and hotels. In partnership with Global Friends we were able to serve, befriend and share Jesus with many of the students. 5 students gave their life to Christ last summer including Tammy. Read her story HERE.

This coming summer we are inviting more interns with Global Friends to serve and seeking further volunteer engagement! There is multiple levels of engagement with the international students. The attached document (above) outlines ways you can serve that range from providing meals and rides to international students to being on a prayer team.

Jacey is a wonderful young lady who works with Global Friends. She is going to live in Okoboji this summer and work on logistics and volunteer coordination. jacey@globalfriendsomaha.org is her e-mail. Contact her if you would like to be added to the list of volunteers.

Would your church like to find out more about our partnership with Global Friends and work with international students?

I would love to come speak to your missions group about how you can be involved. Contact me at jpausley@okobojiconference.org or call our office 712.332.2883

Please be in prayer that God would meet international students in Okoboji this summer!
