A Christian Study Abroad Program

An exciting part of studying abroad with ISA Veritas Christian Study Abroad is being able to participate in ministry work in your host city and country! Studying abroad is an awesome experience on its own, but being able to do ministry will multiply your experience. It’s a great way to see Christianity in another culture and serve with students from all over the United States and Canada.

 

My experience in ministry abroad was not only gratifying and useful, but it taught me lessons I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
-Sergio D., University of Florida, Spain 

 

Get Off Campus and Out of the Country

Your interest in ISA Veritas shows you’re not okay with the norm. It’s not enough to be comfortable in your everyday living—no—you’re ready to step out of your comfort zone and into a life-changing experience!

Get off your campus and out of the country. Discover a new culture and serve a community. Experience the local church in a host country while you earn credit toward your degree. Study abroad and do international missions, together.

 

"When I was looking at different study abroad programs, I had no idea how to choose one. They all seemed basically the same to me...When I stumbled upon Veritas Christian Study Abroad while poking around on the ISA website, I realized that I had found a way to differentiate. I called and talked to Katie, and the mission work sounded really intriguing and I liked the idea of getting plugged into a local church!"
-Nick R., University of Tulsa, Costa Rica

 

You Aren't Alone

At each of our sites, you will be connected with a Veritas Mentor who will meet with you regularly to help you connect to mission opportunities and Christian community. They love mentoring, praying, and doing Bible studies with students. 

"The missions mentor and the experience at a local church easily were the most valuable. I find it so important to be around people from the culture you're studying. I learned how to love the local church. Over the past few weeks, they have become my family. They reminded me that when we have Jesus in common, we have everything in common. I also loved having a mentor to guide and encourage me. She reminded me to make the most of my time here and trust God."
-Kat P., University of Mary-Hardin Baylor, England 
"Missions requires an incredible amount of humility and one cannot be humble whilst they are clinging to their cultural presuppositions and prideful arrogance. There have been so many instances this semester when I felt like I had no idea what to do or say (in a ministry context), and I had to simply stop what I was doing and watch and learn from my Chilean brothers and sisters to see just how they went about sharing the gospel and loving on people."

-Olivia N., Houghton College, Chile
