Accomplishing the vision of helping international students becoming lifelong followers of Jesus Christ requires time spent with the students, helping, encouraging, and training them. There are several ways you can be involved with this ministry. If you are interested in being a part of the ISMNZ team whether through prayer, volunteering, joining staff and/or contributing financially, please get in touch through our contact form.

ISMNZ values those who want to help. We need individuals and church ministries to join us in ministry to international students.
We appreciate those who are available to be a friend to a new international student and help them get settled in New Zealand. It's also great to have keen hearts who help us with organising activities, offering accommodation, providing hospitality, donating furniture, and any practical assistance.
There are also opportunities for people to train with us for cross-cultural work and to serve alongside our workers as ISMNZ Volunteers. A great way to step into serving international students is by providing help with their English comprehension and conversation. ISMNZ has several programmes throughout New Zealand that you can be a part of.
By contributing financially to ISMNZ you can have an impact in several ways:
Supporting individual National and Field staff workers
Funding the work of Equipping: resources, internship scholarships, graduate transition, returnee preparation and follow-up
Investing in National ministry foundations: operations, field staff worker support, communication, training and development
Supporting local ministry teams with ministry expenses: hospitality, international student camps/conferences, transport.
