In-Depth Bible Seminar for International Students May 27-June 3, 2020 Pallottine Renewal Center in St. Louis, Mo. The annual week-long leadership training conference for international students will take place Wednesday, May 27, to Wednesday, June 3, 2020, at the Pallottine Renewal Center in St. Louis. 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.
We continue to welcome “serious seekers” (those 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. Our goal is to have 16-20 students at this conference. 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.
Mature in their faith.
Grow as a leader of a small group.
Please find the 2020 registration, information and schedule to share with prospective students below. You or a staff member responsible for international ministry must sign the registration form.
