Love God, Love Neighbor is a three-day training that equips participants to be advocates, allies, and ambassadors for refugees and the ministry of refugee resettlement. Offered by Episcopal Migration Ministries, with funding from the Constable Fund, the training provides an in-depth exploration of the global displacement crisis, US refugee policy, the refugee resettlement process, faith-based advocacy for refugees, and organizing to welcome and support refugees in your home community.

The gathering brings together people not only from across The Episcopal Church, but also from ecumenical and lay partners to learn from one another as we explore different local contexts as they relate to refugee resettlement. The result is an invaluable opportunity to build community and relationships that continue on after the training ends.
