Description: How can we reach out to love, serve and learn from the 2 million international students and scholars in the U.S. and Canada? The Anglican ISM Network formed a missional community to mobilize, connect and resource Anglicans to engage in meaningful outreach to international students and scholars on our campuses. We have an unprecedented opportunity to impact the world through International Student Ministry. We need you in this network!
Sessions will include topics like:
- Best practices for reaching out to international students near you
- Unique opportunities and challenges in our Anglican and N. American cultures
- Resources for equipping your churches in ISM as well as ISM outreach ideas
Preparation: Come prepared to share your ideas, resources and dreams for connecting with students.
Wednesday Night Dinner at Ridgecrest: Our group will eat together on Wednesday night in the dining hall from 5:30-6:30 so plan to add that meal to your Ridgecrest reservation when you make your housing and meal plans.
