We designed EveryInternational to answer these questions and help you take the next steps in reaching the nations around you.

God's Heart for the Nations
From Genesis to Revelation, God reveals Himself as a missionary God. In Genesis 12, He promises to bless Abraham so that Abraham would be blessing to the nations. Then, in Revelation 7, we see people from every ethne (people group) worshipping Jesus. God’s mission is that the nations would praise him. Experienced ministry leaders describe God’s heart for the nations and the unique and strategic role international students play in fulfilling the Great Commission.
To engage international students with God’s love, you need to enter their world. But how? These lessons explain how to wear different cultural hats. In particular, they provide insight into the three largest people groups studying in North America: students from China, from South Asia, and from the Middle East and North Africa.
