Connect The Nations

About us

Our Beginnings

A Few Words

We are thankful

We started as an outreach in the Rochester, Michigan area, partnering with local churches to extend hospitality to international university students. In June of 2019, Connect The Nations was formed to reach out to international friends, including university students, young professionals, and immigrant families living in various areas of Metro Detroit.

The love of Jesus is our driving force. We believe God loves every person, and we aim to be an extension of that love by providing opportunities for friendship, cultural experiences, learning about Jesus, and assistance in adjusting to life in the United States.

Alexa Lawlor,
