International Student Ministry
Are you interested or involved in International Student Ministry (ISM)? If so, please let us know what you're doing! With nearly 2 million international students studying in the U.S. and Canada, ISM is an area of mission right on our doorsteps. Many of these students come from countries that are closed, or extremely hostile, to the Gospel and to Christians. We have an amazing opportunity to reach out to these students with friendship, hospitality and maybe the Gospel!
Join the Anglican ISM Network (AISMN) by joining our Facebook group Anglican ISM Network or
emailing Mary McDonald.
