DR. DOUGLAS SHAW
Opening Night Speaker
Indian-born Doug Shaw, once an international student himself, is the President/CEO of International Students, Inc. in Colorado Springs, Colorado and has served in that role since 2001.
At a time of extreme challenges and changing paradigms in Missions, Doug is a recognized international leader who is firmly focused on driving forward the strategic goals of International Students, Inc. as it pertains to reaching out to future world leaders and equipping those leaders to become disciple-makers who achieve Kingdom purposes in their home countries.
After receiving his initial education in Calcutta, Dr. Shaw came to the United States and earned both an MA and Ph.D. degrees.
Global CommunityMeet and make new friends from over 50 nations through our social events
This special event will give you the chance to meet and have fun with other students from around the world. Show off your karaoke skills, play group games, or sit down with a new friend for coffee. There will be something for everyone at Community Night.
NEW YEAR’S EVE TALENT SHOW & PARTY
Celebrate the New Year with people from over 60 different countries the Vision Conference way! You’ll experience an international Talent Show leading up to midnight, followed by a dance party highlighting music from around the world.
TOURING OUR LOCATION
Experience two afternoons of touring our location in Colorado. One afternoon will be spent visiting the beautiful Garden of the Gods Nature Center (pictured to the right) and the second afternoon will be spent enjoying downtown Denver. This is a unique part of the country you don’t want to miss!
Spiritual ConversationsExplore and learn about God, the Bible, and life's big questions in an open environment
Much of the conference will be spent in “Tracks”: smaller groups that will help you connect more with other students from your cultural background. This is a great place to have spiritual conversations and think more deeply about questions of life and faith. These tracks will meet once or twice daily for fun, learning, and community. In the midst of a big conference, they are a great way to interact with others one-on-one. Check our Tracks page to learn more specifics about each track!
My favorite part about the conference is that diversity is appreciated and valued at a level I had never experienced before. As an international student, I used to think cultural differences were barriers. But at Vision they are treasured and are being protected and advocated.Iris Wang, student attendee
