Staff Workers &
Massey Albany Campus Worker (Multicultural)
By faith, Carrie was sent to New Zealand through Impact Ministries USA as a 'pioneer' missionary in 2004. God led her on a path to work amongst international students, and she began immediately working with Chinese and Japanese students. Over these years she has been involved in pastoral care, evangelism, prayer and discipleship with students. She has been a part of the chaplaincy team at Massey Albany for several years.
In 2010 Carrie began seeking to become a part of a New Zealand-based mission organisation that would allow her to continue her work amongst international students at Albany. God led her to ISMNZ and we are blessed to have her as a part of our worker family. If you were to ask Carrie about the ministry, she would sum it up as, “Plain and Simple: We love international students!”

The spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,” Isaiah 61:1
New Zealand is a special place for May as this is where she felt God’s call for the mission while she was doing her working holiday here a decade ago. It was then she began praying for the people in Aotearoa, and believed that God intended for revival, and restoration and healing in this country. As she prayed, her eyes were opened to the need for more Christian workers in this beautiful land.
May loves meeting people from different cultures, and seeing how God is bringing all nations to our neighbourhood. As she learnt more about the history of New Zealand, she began to understand how God was using this unique period in time, with the increase of International students and immigrants to fulfil His call to all nations to missions. She feels privileged to be part of God's project.
May graduated in Bachelor of Contemporary Ministry in Alphacrucis College in 2014 and worked as a campus staff worker the previous years. She enjoys Bible studies, singing with students, and interacting with people from different cultures and learning languages. As she was an international student herself from South Korea, she is passionate about helping International students find a place of belonging in New Zealand through the love of Christ, to grow in their faith and become a life-long disciple of Jesus.
