International Ministry

This Westside ministry provides love, service, and teaching to international students and scholars in Norman, especially, those who come from Mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.

We host three annual fellowship dinners to celebrate.
Mid-Autumn Festival(September)

Thanksgiving (November)

Spring Festival (late January or early February).
*We might also have a summer cookout in May or in June.

We have an English Bible class Sunday morning.
During regular OU semesters, we offer an intermediate English class on Wednesday evenings to help international students and scholars improve on English conversation, presentation, and writing. At present, we have two excellent teachers: Don Wilson (Autumn) and Patrick Smyth (Spring). Furthermore, we also offer private Bible studies and English lessons.

Westside facilitates “Host Families” for our international students.

Some of our brothers and sisters make efforts to establish friendships with our guests as their host families to provide love and care, to introduce American culture, and to study the Scripture and to share the Gospel.

At times, we might be able give away cookware and furniture when we receive donations.
