Project Focus: International Student Ministry

Although I am no longer directly on campus, my work as a graphic designer is still very much connected with what is going on at campuses all over the country. In each letter I hope to introduce you to a different ministry related to a project I’m working on. This month I’ve been updating a brochure for International Student
Ministry (ISM).

ISM is a very strategic part of InterVarsity’s vision to develop world changers. There are over 700,000 students and scholars from 200 countries currently in the US. International students are often the most open to Jesus while they are here than any other time in their lives. ISM’s aim is to connect with international students, introduce them to Jesus through friendship, Bible study and conferences, as well as develop them to become leaders in their home countries or elsewhere. Each year hundreds of international students come to know the Lord through InterVarsity.

While I was working with AIV I encountered several international students; providing a home away from home is extremely important to them. Please pray for the ISM staff as they reach the world for Jesus through ministering to these students. Pray that God will open the hearts of international students, many who are from places where the gospel is not allowed to be shared openly.
