Bill & Jenni Perry are long time residents of South Florida where they have raised and home schooled their 7 children. Bill is a researcher, strategist and creator of resources for international student ministries (ISM) in the US. He has 7 published titles since 1992, including “Storyteller’s Bible Study” and “A Look Inside America.” He speaks around the country at mission conferences and national conventions on a variety of topics related to ISM. Bill also directs and speaks at the Florida Christmas Conference an annual event held for international students and scholars between Christmas and New Year’s in Central Florida. For more information on this, email him at
After two years of studying and researching ISM effectiveness and asking hard questions, Bill conceived a new model or approach to ISM called Recon. A significant departure from the way ISM is currently done, Recon could significantly change the landscape of college ministry in the years to come. Please go to www.reconweb.com to read more about it. There are plenty of free resources there for anyone who is interested.
Bill serves as Chief of Staff in InterFACE. In that capacity he has learned a lot of what is going on in all InterFACE locations as well as in many other ISM efforts across the United States.
Bill and Jenni also invite groups of international students to “Tour Florida.” They will work with campus ministry leaders around the country to customize a sightseeing trip for the group any time during the year. The tour typically includes host families in Ft. Lauderdale, optional talks by Bill who gently shares Christianity through low-key but engaging presentations, a daytrip to Key West, an airboat ride in the Everglades, a boat trip down the Intra-Coastal Waterway and New River, and 2 days in the Orlando area at world famous theme parks such as Magic Kingdom and EPCOT Center of Disney World, Universal Studies and/or Busch Gardens. All of these activities can be done in about 1 week’s time, including travel to and from Florida, from most spots in the eastern US. Costs cover transportation, food, and entrance fees for sightseeing.
