Other Activities

In a typical year, International Ministries looks forward to hosting the following events.  However, due to Covid-19, we are unable to put on these in-person events.  We also are unable to offer our weekly Thursday Lunch or Global Cafe.  We miss these get together’s very much and look forward to being able to see you in-person again soon!


Every year, International Ministries hosts a Thanksgiving Dinner on the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving.  Complete with turkey, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie and more, we enjoy a time of international fun and giving thanks.

We offer free airport pickups for new international students arriving for the Fall and Spring semester.  Email uhairportwelcome@gmail.com to request a pick up at the Honolulu International Airport.

The Friday before classes start in the Fall semester, we have The Big Giveaway, where we give used household items away…for free!  Towels, bed sheets, cooking utensils, cups, kitchen appliances,small pieces of furniture (and more) are collected from local Christians, and then made available to assist new students setting up their rooms.
