Refugee and International Campus Ministry
We help people see, experience, and respond to the love of God through Jesus Christ around the world.
We reach out to refugees and international undergraduate and graduate students, visiting scholars, researchers, and their families at Virginia Tech University and Ramkampaeng University in Bangkok, Thailand. We need your help.
International Campus Ministry
The Bible teaches that people are lost in their sin without Jesus. Only Jesus can save and restore people to a right relationship with God. Jesus said in Matthew 28:18-20, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Phil and Michelle are US evangelists ministering to people from countries around the world in refugee and international campus ministry at Virginia Tech University. They regularly meet and become friends with people from Afghanistan, Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan, Iran, and other countries. Most of these new friends are unchurched. They help them with English conversation classes, trips to fun places, and special activities like cooking classes. It’s during these relationship building activities that friendships deepen and opportunities to share Christ in weekly Bible studies become available. Phil and Michelle share the Gospel in weekly Bible studies with international undergraduate and graduate students, visiting scholars, researchers, professors, and their families. Would you be willing to help the Parkers reach out to people from other countries?
How to Support Us
Learn about the Need
The world is coming to us! You probably saw the horrific events associated with the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan and the evacuation of Afghan citizens fearing for their lives. We are helping Afghan refugees that have resettled in the New River Valley area. Also, we reach out to the 8000 international students, scholars, researchers and family members associated with Virginia Tech University in Blacksburg, Virginia. Most know very little about why Jesus came and what it means to follow Him. We share the love of Christ through weekly English classes and Bible studies. We also take our international friends on special trips to explore Virginia and the surrounding areas. Your partnership helps us to reach out to the international community.

Testimonies from Partners in Ministry
Cregg and Denise Laws
Victory44 International needs your partnership. The Parkers are, and have been, working diligently in reaching out to international students with the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ. I feel the work of Victory44 International is a great opportunity to make connections with foreign students. It is a unique and worthwhile ministry.
Drew Darden - Preacher of Steele's Chapel Christian Church
As members of the body of Christ, we are called to win the lost, train the saved, and send the discipled. Phil and Michelle Parker through Victory44 International have done just that for many faithful years. They have answered the call to expand the Kingdom of God. Your partnership with Victory44 is an absolutely great way to get involved in a unique para-church ministry that is introducing people daily to the love and salvation that comes only through Jesus Christ.
