In-Depth Bible Seminar for International Students May 16 – 23, 2018 Sojourn: A Christian Retreat, Dittmer (St. Louis), Missouri The annual week-long leadership training conference for international students will take place from Wednesday, May 16 to Wednesday, May 23, 2018, at Sojourn: A Christian Retreat, Dittmer (St. Louis), Mo. We encourage ministry sites to invite Christian and “Serious Seeker” international students, connected with your campus ministry, who are leaders or potential leaders for Christian outreach and training to participate in this conference. If you have sent others in previous years, you realize what an important event this seminar is for many who have attended.
Each year, International Student Ministry, Inc. invites ministry sites to ask Christian international students to apply for acceptance into the In-Depth Bible Seminar. The week-long training is designed to provide leadership skills for international students in order that they might:
Better understand the basic teachings of the Christian faith
Gain skill and confidence in sharing the faith with non-Christians
Develop more fully in their personal faith
Grow as leaders of small groups
