The 4th Annual Border & Migration Ministry Summit, co-hosted by Episcopal Migration Ministries and the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas, will be postponed until March 2022.
The work of migration ministry is not without its challenges. The situations our migration ministries respond to can change unpredictably and crucial opportunities to serve our neighbors rarely arrive with much advance warning. In the midst of finalizing conference details for the 2021 Summit, EMM began working diligently to assist arriving Afghan individuals and families through our network of affiliates across the country.
Around the same time, the Immigration & Refugee Ministries of the Diocese of West Texas began responding to the crisis in Del Rio and are providing humanitarian aid to the displaced Haitians traveling through their diocese to family and sponsors throughout the U.S. These humanitarian crises require significant staff attention and time, limiting the co-hosts’ ability to provide the conference originally planned.
After much discussion and in order to honor our excellent keynote speakers, workshop leaders, panel members, and attendees with a fully developed conference, the 4th Annual Border & Migration Ministry Summit will now take place March 30 – 31, 2022.
