Building Ministry among International Students and Scholars
You can have a transformational impact on some of the ONE MILLION INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS WHO STUDY IN THE U.S. Many are curious about Christianity and American culture. Let your light shine to the ends of the earth as an ISM intern serving among international students on your campus. First, you’ll attend the ISM Inc. Equipping Conference, May 23-25, 2023. In August, you will spend a week at an active ISM site, learning how God has been working there. During the fall semester, you’ll develop relationships with international students and scholars, plan events and classes, and help build a program that will continue for years to come. You'll bring fresh ideas, but also help put into action, the plans of those who will continue the ministry after your internship ends.
ISM Inc. equips the intern and the congregation, assists in planning the internship program and provides a monthly stipend of $600 for full time interns or a proportionate amount for part time interns.
Leaders in the congregation or campus ministry provide local guidance, assistance in identifying additional volunteers, and may also provide accommodation and other support.
The intern: uses his or her God-given skills in partnership with other volunteers and church workers.
