Each summer in Destin, and all along Florida's Emerald Coast, many international students come to work as "J1 Students," with a work/study (J1) Visa. Safe Harbor PCA and other local churches are dedicated to welcoming these international students and helping them in practical ways.
If you are a J1 student, know that you are welcome to visit us and join in any of our activities! In the past, J1 students have come to our church, our Men's group, our small group Bible Study, and other church events. We also hope you will join us on the last Wednesday of every month in the church fellowship hall at 6 p.m. for a (free) pot-luck supper. We also would be happy to connect you with volunteers who would be happy to meet with you to answer any of your questions, have you to their home for a meal, assist you with rides to the grocery store or Walmart, or help you in case of an emergency or other urgent need. Please feel free to contact our church office at (850) 837-2133 for more information. We hope your work/study stay in our beautiful area is pleasant, encouraging, and uplifting!
