5 Places to Make Christian Friends

If you’re a young adult looking for more Christian friends, you may think the only place to meet them is at church. Luckily, those of us in Wichita have the Kansas Christian Underground. If you are not lucky enough to live in Wichita, though, you may be able to meet Christians in other ways.

1. Parties and social gatherings

If you have even one friend who knows of any gatherings that don’t center around alcohol, that would be a good place to start. Parties and social gatherings can be tricky because for young people, they do often involve drugs and alcohol. However, ask around the Christian friends you already have and see if they know of any good parties or social events coming up.

2. Weddings

People have a misconception that a wedding is often a crazy party, but there are plenty of couples who don’t have alcohol at their weddings. Weddings are a great place to mingle and meet new people, especially as the spirit of love and romance is in the air.

3. Coffee shops

There are plenty of Christian groups who like to meet at Starbucks or other coffee shops. Who doesn’t love a latte? These can be excellent places to meet other Christians as the coffee shop can often be a social and chatty place.

4. Church events

This one seems kind of obvious, but so many people just go to church every Sunday without ever really getting involved. Join a Bible Study group. Go to your church’s music or social outings. Try getting involved and getting to know your brothers and sisters in Christ. There is no better way to get to know other Christians.

5. Mission trips

Dedicating your time to Jesus in a mission trip is a great thing to do. You will also find that when you other Christians on these trips are longing for other people who are also dedicated Christians to be in their lives. You might even end up meeting that special someone you can spend the rest of your life with.
