International Student Ministry (ISM)

What is ISM?

At DUMC, ISM stands for International Student Ministry, a vibrant community dedicated to serving and supporting international students in Malaysia. With over 200,000 international students in this diverse land, DUMC has been extending a warm hand of friendship for more than two decades. Our journey began with the Chinese church, reaching out to Chinese students from various universities and colleges in the Klang Valley. As our ministry embraced students from around the world, we transformed into the International Students Ministry in 2001.

At the heart of our ministry are small groups, affectionately referred to as “cell groups” which meet weekly. Our goal is to provide a loving, accepting, and nurturing environment where international students can find a sense of belonging and care. For many, these cell groups have become a home away from home, a place where lifelong friendships are forged. Along this journey, numerous students have discovered faith in Jesus, experienced healing, restoration, newfound hope, and exciting opportunities.

Our cell group gatherings are designed to be both enriching and enjoyable. Here, you’ll find fun, food, and fellowship aplenty. Together, we explore godly and righteous living through the lens of the Bible, fostering discussions that inspire personal growth.
