International Fellowship exists to connect the international population of Chicago with life-changing community and resources. 

We recognize that God is bringing thousands of people from all over the world to Chicago to live, work and study. As a church, we want to embrace this incredible opportunity to welcome, serve and share the message of Jesus Christ with the international population of this city. Whether you are an international student, working professional or immigrant, you are not here by accident! We would love to get to know you and help you make the most of your time in Chicago. Please join us at any of the following events:


Engage is a place for Internationals to find community, explore Christianity and study the Bible together. We meet every Sunday morning at 9:15 am.  


Members of HTC intentionally open up their homes and invite Internationals to join them for Easter and Thanksgiving holiday meals. International Fellowship (IF) also hosts an annual Christmas party and Chinese New Year celebration.


Throughout the year, we organize a number of social events including parties, potluck dinners, outings in the city and more. These events are a fun way to get to know the city, learn more about each other’s cultures and build community.


We hold workshops and provide resources to set you up for success in your career journey in the U.S. (or back in your home country). We host our annual Career Development Workshop every spring and hold practical career workshops in the summer.


If you are interested in learning more about Christianity, Jesus, God and culture, we invite you to meet one-on-one with various members of HTC. If this is something you are interested in doing, please email
