Ministry Opportunities

  • Neighbor to Neighbor
    • Neighbor to Neighbor is not a program so much as a network, connecting newly arrived asylum seekers with an Episcopal congregation in their new, local community. Learn more.
  • Supporting Asylum Seekers: A Toolkit for Congregations
    • This toolkit provides guidance and resources for congregations who want to support asylum seekers and welcome their newest neighbors, focusing especially on longer-term support and sponsorship models. Request the toolkit.
  • EMM hosts an Asylum and Detention Ministry Network that in 2021 will meet virtually on the fourth Wednesday of every month. The Ministry Network’s collaborative work and conversation focus on best practice-sharing in areas of direct service, organizing, advocacy actions, Christian formation and worship resources, and community education to protect asylum, promote humane and dignified alternatives to detention, and to support asylum seekers and those harmed by the immigration detention system. Join the network.
