Reaching International Students for Christ, Here.

International Students INC (ISI)  is one of our local ministry strategic partnerships and they are already gearing up for the fall semester.ISI Logo

Students from all over the world (many from countries with little or no access to the gospel) come to UNM to study academics and experience culture.  Though sadly, many of them never get invited into the homes of an American while they are here.   What an opportunity to get to know them, learn about their people, country, and culture, and share with them the love of Jesus.
