We have a vibrant ministry to international students at the University of Delaware and immigrant families. Rev. Rick Gray directs Reformed University Ministry-International. Mr. Jim Thomas directs our Graduate and International Student Fellowship. Rick and Jim work together to provide ESL classes on Wednesday evenings, a Friday evening Bible study, and an ESL Sunday School class that reviews the text for the morning sermon during the worship service. We have many internationals who are vital members of our congregation. Many of our members serve in the international ministry. Email Rick Gray (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jim Thomas (email@example.com) for more information on international ministry at the University of Delaware. A schedule for this weeks events is below.
