The International Service Corps (ISC) Program focuses on short term (2-3 years) support roles, working alongside Career missionaries in proclaiming the Gospel to unreached peoples throughout the world.  These ISC support roles are vital to the overall task of extending the Kingdom, and include such assignments as teaching in an international school, medical care of missionary families, media, logistical support, information technology, finance and bookkeeping, etc.  In any of these assignments, you can anticipate abundant opportunity to work with missionaries in sharing the Gospel with the lost around you.
