Reaching the Nations at our Doorstep

As Christmas is approaching, ISMC is excited about opportunities provided by this season to share about Jesus with the students we’ve been connecting with all year, as well as with new students who might only ever show up for a Christmas event. Please pray for our ministry in universities across the country, for our leaders and volunteers, and for all the international students God has placed in our lives.

While we had hoped to be long past the pandemic by now, we have continued to shift and adjust to reach the nations at our doorstep—and to empower international students to impact the world through Jesus Christ.

This Christmas season, we’re inviting you to donate to a special fund to help our programs cover the additional costs of ministering in COVID times.

Costs such as:

  • providing hand sanitizer and face masks for in-person events
  • purchasing food that used to be provided, because rules around serving meals have changed
  • packaging and delivering care packages in COVID-friendly hospitality programs
  • and many other hidden and not-so-hidden costs to adapting to COVID protocols.

We’re hoping to raise $350 to bless each of our city ministries – a total of $7000.

Thank you for helping us to continue to reach out to international students across the country! God continues to provide opportunities, and we’re delighted that you’re part of them!

May God bless your Christmas season and may you draw even closer to Him in 2022.
