Welcoming International students on your campus is a great way of reaching the nations without ever having to leave home. Being away from their potentially Christian resistant settings back home, these students are now much more willing and able to receive the message of Christ. If you are able to reach them, then you send them home with a lot more than a collection of funny American t-shirts. You send them with the message that can transform their friends, family, and country like no outsider visiting their home-town ever could.
Starting an international student ministry (ISM) can seem daunting, but it does not have to be. You can start with simple outreach efforts on your own, or you can join an ISM that already exists on your campus. The following is a list of Nation-wide International Student Ministries that exist on college campuses in North America. Take a look to see if any of them can be found on your campus. If not, you could reach out to them about starting a new chapter with your help!
