For many years Bangor Christian Schools has been
hosting international students from around the world. These students
bring with them experiences and backgrounds that add to the cultural, social,
and academic diversity of our school. It is our desire that these
students will greatly benefit from their time at Bangor Christian as well.
Our goal is to provide the necessary learning opportunities that will
assist them in growing intellectually, socially, spiritually, and in many other
ways. As our international students become integrated into the daily life
at Bangor Christian Schools, we come to know each other in a more personal way
and acquire a better understanding of people from other lands.
Furthermore, these students tend to be highly motivated and bring many
positive academic and intellectual attributes to our classrooms. We are
very grateful for their contributions to Bangor Christian and wish them
Godspeed as they move on to post-secondary studies. We certainly admire
the courage that these students demonstrate in coming half way around the world
to live and study in America.

Refuel ministry at Bangor Baptist Church. Ralph’s favorite class was
