“As a study abroad student ASC’s open home and bible studys helped me immensely to accomplish several things in my short time in Belfast. As a growing young Christian I was able to connect with other college ages Christians and other students very quickly, which made me feel more at home than I thought I would feel off the bat. Secondly the open home and bible studies were excellent chances to combine both fun activities and good conversation on difficult issues concerning the Christian life.” Jarrod from America
