ISMC’s vision is to empower international students to impact the world through Jesus Christ. We do this through discipleship workshops, internship programs, and leadership seminars. Our purpose is to see international students equipped with godly leadership skills so they can make a godly impact wherever the Lord leads after their journey in Canada.
A recent leadership seminar, Raising Emerging Leaders for Global Impact, was organized by Memorial University’s FOCUS Club. It provided an environment where international students could be inspired, equipped, and connected with influential leaders to spark ethical and positive leadership at home, in the workplace, and in their communities. About 35 students from twelve countries attended.
During the seminar, ISMC President, Dr. Yaw Perbi, described a leader as an individual who inspires and influences people towards achieving a particular goal. He encouraged international students to aspire to their potential so they could make meaningful and positive contributions in their fields of endeavour.
Seminar participants were invited to join the FOCUS Club. Through the club’s weekly Bible studies and social activities, students can explore the Christian faith, develop Bible based leadership skills, and grow to become godly leaders who will impact the world. Imagine how the world would be if these students became fully devoted followers of Jesus, ministering to those God placed in their lives, be it in Canada or their home country.
