For many years, Briarwood Church has participated in the "Friendship Partners" Program. This unique program allows for an ongoing relationship between an international student or scholar and a person/family from the Briarwood Church community.
The program allows for an incredible opportunity for cultural exchange and to develop a friendship with someone in America. The partnerships usually include the American volunteer inviting his or her international friend to their home for a special visit or meal, as well as other outings around town. The goal is for the American and international to make contact with each other two times per month.
