In-Depth Bible Seminar for International Students 2020 has been cancelled The annual week-long leadership training conference for international students has been cancelled for 2020 due to COVID-19 health crisis. We are already planning a great gathering for 2021 so please check back next year.
Please identify Christian and “Serious Seeker” international students connected with your campus ministry who are leaders or potential leaders for Christian training and outreach and invite them to participate in this seminar. If you have sent others in previous years, you realize what an important event this seminar is for those who have attended. The In-Depth Bible Seminar for International Students is traditional held at the Pallottine Renewal Center in St. Louis, MO. The seminar consists of an eight-day training for Christian and “serious seekers” with a Bible overview, Catechism lessons, preparing and sharing a personal testimony, and facilitating a small group ministry.
We welcome “serious seekers” (those students involved in Bible study for at least six months). The ISM, Inc. board of directors believes that Christians and “serious seekers” are a good mix. Christians will readily share the Good News with fellow students, and seekers are often very open to the witness of their peers. The week-long event is designed to provide leadership skills for international students in order that they might:
Better understand the basic beliefs and teachings of the Christian faith.
Gain skill and confidence in sharing their faith with non-Christians.

The cost per participant is approximately $850 of which each participant pays a $150 registration fee. Our hope is to offer training to 20 students.
ISM, Inc. has found that the impact of the In-Depth Bible Seminar has made an eternal difference in the lives of those who attend. It opens the truth of God’s Word to those who are seeking to know Jesus and strengthen their faith. “Graduates” of the In-Depth Bible Seminar continue to serve around the world.
