HIS Stands for Helping International Students

Through mobilizing kingdom marketplaces and ministry leaders to connect and develop friendships with international students and visiting scholars that leads to dialogue which influences thinking, ideology, and inspires and equips them to become ethical and impactful leaders in the U.S. and in their communities of origin.

HIS staff members and volunteers assist students/scholars with their practical needs as they adjust to the American culture.

Students/scholars have the option of joining in a variety of HIS-sponsored activities such as Leadership Forums, English classes, retreats, travel opportunities and Bible studies.

Many lasting relationships develop between students/scholars and HIS staff and volunteers and then continue after their educational training is finished and then go to other cities or return to their home countries.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Prayer Needs
