Education First

Education First is a summer foreign exchange student program in our community. Each year students from various countries all over the world come to Jacksonville to study English and learn about American culture. Host families provide housing for these students during their stay and teach them about life in their home. Families from our church host students each summer as a way to show hospitality and share the gospel of Christ with these students during their stay. We view it as an opportunity to go on a foreign mission trip without ever leaving your home!
