Pastors and other church leaders are uniquely positioned in immigrant communities to develop relationships and demonstrate the truth of the gospel. The Church Leader’s Guide to Immigration has been designed as a resource for those on the front lines of ministry who need practical guidance. The questions in this guide were gathered by the authors over several years from local churches and national denominational leaders in the U.S. The questions and answers are not intended to be exhaustive, but designed to lay a foundation for further study. Each section lists additional resources that offer a more in-depth discussion of the presented topics.
The guide has been divided into three parts:
- Section One: Biblical & Missiological Foundations for Immigrant Ministry: Discerning God’s Heart
- Section Two: Immigration Legal Issues
- Section Three: Developing an Immigration Legal Ministry
We hope this will be a useful tool for the reader and welcome feedback and suggestions on topics/questions that should be added to the guide at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
