International Student Ministry

Developing and Sending Global Disciples and Leaders

Welcome to InterVarsity International Student Ministry (ISM)!  We’re delighted that you are interested in international students and scholars.  Our desire is to befriend, develop and send internationals from every nation to every nation.  It’s a great privilege to have the nations on our campuses, not only to welcome and share, but to shape our US American students too.  Below you will find key resources to help you get started. Learn more about ISM here.

Mixed and White Reflections banner
Some of us are multiethnic with a “white and—” ethnic story. What does it mean to have this complicated family history? What does it mean to reject the harms of whiteness without losing a part of ourselves? Use these reflections to ask these questions and explore the “Mixed and white” experience.
Beyond Colorblind square
The Beyond Colorblind Proxe Station is designed as a catalyst for conversations around the Gospel through students' ethnic stories. Follow the link below to find everything you could need for training, promotion, set-up, and follow-up.
Peace Feast banner
Peace Feasts are helping groups across the country grow witnessing relationships with Muslims. Instead of a formal dialogue with guest lecturers and little interaction, Peace Feasts are about heart-level dialogue: Muslims and Christians get together in small groups, share a meal and discuss faith and life.
How to Meet Muslim Internationals banner
There are Muslim international students on your campus but, while they may be curious, most will not show up at a typical InterVarsity or ministry event. We need to go to them. But it’s very easy to get started. Walking up and introducing yourself is one of the best ways to make a new friend. This resource will teach you how!
