Transcript of International Student Ministries of New Zealand

Mission Helping international students in New Zealand become life-long followers of Jesus in their home country. Vision All international students in New Zealand have the opportunity to hear the gospel of Jesus. Students from many countries – some inaccessible to traditional missionary endeavour – grow as followers of Jesus while studying in New Zealand, continue to serve God throughout their lives, and help many in their home countries and around the world become and grow as followers of Jesus, thereby helping reach their communities and countries for Christ.
