Learn and Teach Your Congregation about God's Love for Immigrants

Below is an ongoing gathering of resources for learning about the issues surrounding immigration, the impact of immigration laws, and the stories of those impacted by them. Use these and future resources that will be added here to educate yourself and your congregation about immigration and a biblical perspective on it.

 

G92.org

G92 is a culture-shaping movement seeking to equip the next generation of Christian leaders for an effective, biblical response to immigration.

G92 began at Cedarville University in October of 2011.  It takes its name from the ninety-two references to the ger—the immigrant, in Hebrew—in the Old Testament.  Students, faculty, and administrators at Cedarville joined together with individuals from about twenty other colleges and universities to hear biblical teaching, to raise awareness about the realities of immigration, and to equip Christian college students across the country to learn from, minister to, and advocate with immigrant communities.

WelcomingtheStranger.com

Welcoming the Stranger is a site provided by World Relief to provide opportunities to learn about the immigration crisis, form a distinctly Christian perspective, and take action.

Welcoming the Stranger also provides the 4-part "Church Leader's Guide to Immigration" shown below. These are 30-minute video trainings, each followed by a 30-minute church leaders panel discussion. Other resources can be found at: www.theimmigrationalliance.org
