Past intern experiences
ISM is a Holy Spirit-led missions training school located in Bangkok, Thailand, and is a ministry of the PAOC. We believe that the Holy Spirit is raising up a generation of young adults who are longing to live their lives with purpose and are willing to GO, serve, and love the people of South East Asia. ISM will train, equip, and mobilize students to have an impact on the world around them.
ISM is a perfect choice for people between the ages of 17 and 30, who are either looking to fulfill a formal internship for a college or university, or who are independently looking for a venue to explore their calling to overseas missions.
OVERVIEW OF ISM
The Holy Spirit has empowered us to be witnesses.
All the love, mercy, joy, and creativity of Heaven lies inside of you. You can preach the gospel and bring the Good News to the poor, and through that God can use you to release the oppressed and bring hope and healing to the people of South East Asia.
Jesus said, "Go!" We believe it's your turn! We will give you the tools not only to proclaim with power, but to serve with compassion, love with grace, and touch the hearts and lives of the people in these nations in a practical and meaningful way.
Students at ISM are currently from Canada and America, but international students are welcome! Instructors range from PAOC missionaries and ministry leaders, to international guests and national leaders. The training session is held at the Thailand Pentecostal Seminary, so there will be Thai Bible college students on site, as well, and opportunities will be provided for the students to interact with each other.
Students will live in shared apartments with other ISM students. They will be in a safe and clean environment close to transportation, markets and other important locations.
If you are already attending a college and are planning to use ISM to fulfill your internship component, please note that we are happy to fill out any forms your college requires. Please make sure we are provided with all necessary information and forms well in advance of due dates.
