An extension of the church in the Community

"By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth

1 John 3:16-18

Ways to Get Involved


Are you tired of Churches talking about loving everyone but always staying within their comfort zone? Are you tired of seeing others hurting and wishing that they knew Jesus

Overflow is your opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus that all Christians should aspire to be. The broken, the hurting, the poor, the lonely, and the addicted will come with needs, and you can play a role in meeting those needs. Jesus did not call you to a life of comfort with those who are like you. Instead, he called you to be set apart by being willing to sit down and break bread with the outcasts of society.

Why International Friendship Connection (IFC)

International Friendship Connection - Des Moines (IFC-DSM) exists to create a home away from home for international college students in Des Moines through relationships that help people experience meaning, hope, and love in their life.

Many of us have traveled to or lived in another country for an extended period of time. During these times we had people who welcomed us in to their home and showed us hospitality.

We know how challenging it can be to meet people and get connected in a foreign country. Through IFC we hope to show hospitality to people in our home country like we experienced in other peoples’ countries.
