In this webinar, we will focus on how to become more welcoming to refugees and immigrants — personally, as a church and as a country.

The presentation will look at the theological and scriptural reasons for welcoming, while also specifically addressing real concerns that many people have. We’ll explore practical ways to help locally, nationally and internationally. And, you’ll be introduced to spiritual practices that can help a church and its members go deeper on this issue, wherever they are along the political spectrum. Kent Annan will also share stories that encourage the church to be more welcoming.

After participating in this webinar, you will:

  • Be able to address real concerns that people have about refugee and immigration issues.
  • Know spiritual practices that can be used in a congregation to help go deeper in addressing these issues.
  • Be ready to help and advocate for refugees and immigrants in practical ways.
  • Understand the theological basis for “welcoming.”

Who should attend: This webinar will be helpful to pastors, Christian educators and congregation members who are (or want to be) engaged on refugee and immigration issues.
