Each year the N4C team organizes unique outreach events to present the Gospel to International students from all over the world. Please watch this short 7 minute video report of the 63 events.
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making His appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 2 Corinthians 5:20.
After ministering for 19 years in Russia, the Kochan family was called to the USA and started Nations4Christ, a ministry to reach international exchange students that come under the J1 visa program. For the last 12 years thousands of young people have been impacted for Christ since the inception of this ministry. The hub of where we reach out to students is from the building we’ve named, World Harvest Embassy, which is strategically located on 206 Valley Drive in Pigeon Forge. Because is it close to the Parkway and where the students live, they can easily visit our daily WHE outreach events and activities. WH Embassy completed its 1st phase of renovation, which provides a welcoming coffee shop with a Christ-centered atmosphere.
This facility is extremely popular with the students. We are hosting up to 90 young people for each event, and so we are already in need of expanding our space to accommodate the increasing number of students who desire to participate. This will take a miracle, but we desperately need to build a fellowship hall to complete the 2nd phase of renovation. Each year about 1500 students come to Sevier County from literally all over the world. Most come from countries closed to the Gospel, particularly those that are Communist or Muslim nations. Over 700 students have visited the WHE each year. These internationals work and live in various locations throughout the county so the WHE is a safe place where they can connect with each other and with Christians who are there to assist them. Here lifelong friendships are made, and students are exposed nonstop to the Gospel message.
