I just returned from URBANA which takes place every two years in St. Louis, MO. For one week, almost 11,000 college students come from all over the United States and Canada for a time of recommitment and to look for opportunities to serve the Lord through various ministries. We were just one of the hundreds that were represented.
For those who do not know, the Network of International Christian Schools operates 19 international Christian schools in 16 countries (United States, Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, Venezuela, Malaysia, Brazil, Ghana, Kenya, Turkey, China, Singapore, Indonesia, Korea, Japan, and Kosovo). We are constantly looking for teachers, administrators, business managers, and guidance counselors who are passionate about sharing their faith. Our students represent over 120 countries and are primarily the children of businessmen, military personnel, missionaries, diplomats, and embassy staff. Jannett and I have had the opportunity to serve with them in Lima, Peru at the International Christian School of Lima.
In the end, we were able to speak with about 175 students about possibly using their gifts and talents serving overseas with our organization.
