Welcome to FOCUS!
FOCUS stands for “the Fellowship of Overseas Christian University Students”. We are a group of international students who are committed to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ to other international students and to grow personally in our love and knowledge of Him. In order to do so, FOCUS seeks to be a friendly and safe place where International Students can gather together to learn about God and study the Bible with their friends in a non-threatening environment. On top of that, FOCUS also runs several special events throughout the year, such as a variety of social and camps. In short, FOCUS wants to be your “home” away from home.
The aims of FOCUS are:
- to explain the Bible in simple English for non-native speakers so they may trust Jesus as their King and Saviour
- to provide care and support for international students during their stay in Australia.
- to build friendships between Australians and international students and share the gospel in an appropriate way
- to prepare international students to return to their home countries, taking the gospel with them where possible
If you are an overseas student or know someone who is coming to study from overseas, get involved with your university’s FOCUS group – it is a great way to learn more about Christianity in a friendly environment, and to form friendships with other Christian uni students from around the world.
