Engaging Immigration

Building Church Leaders, 2014. Accessed April 14, 2017.

A Building Church Leaders Training Tool, Engaging Immigration is designed to help leaders think strategically and biblically about how their congregation can engage immigration. Recognizing that immigration is a growing issue, this downloadable Training Tool offers ways churches can respond in meaningful and practical ways. Through 8 brief modules, Engaging Immigration tackles ways immigration shapes community needs and how churches can provide legal hospitality and service to immigrants. Each module contains a short essay followed by discussion questions. Flexibly designed, it can be used in a variety of settings. Topics include: gospel insights into “welcoming the stranger”; practical ways a congregation can serve those impacted by immigration, multiethnic ministry, and missional aspects of immigration ministry. Written by respected evangelical authors and church leaders, the essays and discussion questions can be tailored to other Christian theological perspectives.
