The South Asian Friendship Center (SAFC) has been a catalyst for ministries and ministry partners across the globe. They are in a unique setting in the urban “Little India” neighborhood of Chicago. Their ministry is in an ethnically diverse neighborhood on the north side of Chicago comprised of Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Jews, Christians and more. SAFC works to express the love of Jesus Christ with their neighbors. Your Apex experience with the SAFC will allow you to learn about many world religions, grow in your ability to live as salt and light among people of different faiths and allow you to serve alongside SAFC in some of their neighborhood ministry partnerships.
