Today, over 1.2 million of the world’s best and brightest students, scholars and researchers from every nation are studying in the US. Many of these future leaders will return to their home countries to positions of power and influence in business, government, and academia. Approximately 60% of these potential leaders are from countries in the 10/40 Window, many of which are closed to traditional missionary outreach. About 9,000 of these students are in the Ann Arbor area.
We are committed to discipling these future leaders, providing the moral compass of knowing Jesus Christ. Our efforts are strategically directed toward evangelism and reaching the world’s academic leaders at the University of Michigan. Students who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior can be bold witnesses for Him in their own countries, where they are able to connect to their culture, language, and society in ways that will make their ministry much more effective.
