Meet Our Staff in
Murfreesboro/ Smyrna, TN

Matt Loving

As an iFace staff member, Matt Loving joins a local team of volunteers who engage with international neighbors.

Getting to know Americans in your community can be a big challenge when you are from another culture. To bridge that gap, the Murfreesboro/Smyrna team currently serve international students at Middle Tennessee University and will be working towards serving students at Motlow State Community College.

We provide several opportunities for students and volunteers to get to know each other.

Conversation Partners

We meet together once a week for English conversational practice and friendship, providing students a great way to meet new friends and improve speaking skills.  

First Friends Partners

We match students with American volunteers and families from the area to meet monthly for friendship and cultural exchange, as a “home  away from home,” learning about the community and American culture.

And much more . . .

Community activities, cultural and holiday exchange, and ESL assistance. For those students interested in learning what the Bible teaches, we offer Discovery Bible study about growing in Christian faith and fellowship. 

Our volunteers are Christians committed to serving the international student community. We all appreciate the kind of friend who is willing to look after our best interests with genuine kindness. This is our goal for all students and volunteers in every iFace activity.
