Mission Spotlight: International Community Church



ICC logoInternational Community Church (ICC) receives mission support from The Crossing. Bill Younker serves as the pastor at ICC which meets in the Hillel Jewish Student Center near the University Ave parking garage. ICC is a congregation of mid-Missourians that reaches out to International students, visiting scholars, and their families on the MU campus. ICC’s congregation includes Internationals who came to Columbia as grad students and now make Columbia their permanent home.

International students and visiting scholars are often at MU for a number of years accompanied by spouses and children (and sometimes extended family members.) They must set up house, learn (or improve) English skills, get their kids educated, and learn a new culture–all while one family member is very busy researching, teaching or starting grad school at MU.
