Church Between Borders
What is it?
Church Between Borders is a 4 part interactive workshop that sparks thought and discussion for Christian groups interested in engaging immigration from a Biblical perspective. Participants will reflect on the Biblical mandate to welcome the stranger and consider what that means in our current context.
Why should my church participate?
The word immigrant, ger, appears 92 times in the the Old Testament, but only 24% of evangelicals have discussed immigration in their church. We want to be a part of the movement to change that.
Session 1: Addressing the brokenness of the current system and why the Church cares
Session 2: Immigration Storyline
Session 3: How Did We Get Here?
Session 4: Real Change
