Mission on Our Doorsteps: The Missional Opportunity of Refugees and Immigration to the U.S. (Audio)

By Matthew Soerens, Jul 10, 2018

Many in our society think of refugees and immigration as political, security, or economic topics. But they're also themes that the Bible speaks to frequently with significant implications for mission.

In this seminar, Matthew Soerens, U.S. director of church mobilization for World Relief, examines how biblical principles can inform our response to this topic; explore how God is at work through migration to draw people to Himself; address common concerns about serving refugees and other immigrants; and provide practical ways for congregations to serve those in their own community. 

Listen and learn how you and your church can be better equipped to love those whom God has brought to our doorsteps. 

This seminar was recorded live at the 2017 PCA Global Missions Conference in Dallas.
