Volunteer

With limited staff, our entire ministry depends on partnerships with our volunteers and local Christian congregations. Our partners live out our mission of showing Christ’s love to the international students, scholars, and their families, and the relationships often live on, well after the students have gone home or moved out of the area.

If you would like to learn more, please go to the Contact Us tab, and inquire about joining the ISM Volunteer Team.

Below is a schedule of our upcoming Spring 2017 Events. Please join us!
