With so many people around the globe migrating, including at our own borders, how should Christians and the Church respond? Where do we begin to understand a faithful response to immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers? As evangelicals, we start with the Bible.
This NAE webinar explored an ancient and biblical perspective on migration. Walter Kim, NAE president, and M. Daniel Carroll Rodas, Scripture Press Ministries professor of biblical studies and pedagogy at Wheaton College and Graduate School, discussed specific Scripture as it relates to migration and how the Scriptures should inform a distinctly Christian approach to this complex issue. You’ll also hear from Christine Sequenzia Titus, NAE policy director, as she provided policy updates and action steps you can take.
Learn more about God’s long-standing heart for many who choose or are forced to migrate and how you can respond to immigrants within your community, in our nation and around the world.
