Resources for Churches 2018-04-06T09:09:04+00:00


Episcopal Migration Ministries is The Episcopal Church’s ministry of refugee resettlement and welcome. We offer a variety of resources for individuals, congregations, and community groups to learn more about our work and how to be an ambassador, advocate, and ally for our refugee neighbors and the work of welcome.

In this critical moment for refugee resettlement, and the voices of the faith community have never been more needed. Episcopalians are encouraged to join in the faithful ministry of advocacy through the work of the Episcopal Public Policy Network. If you are not a member of The Episcopal Church, you may be interested in lifting your voice through the work of the Interfaith Immigration Coalition or Refugee Council USA.

Our upcoming Love God, Love Neighbor training will be held May 2-4 in Atlanta, GA.

Registration deadline is March 19.

Neighbors Together

This Welcoming America toolkit provides promising practices to counter anti-refugee and anti-Muslim backlash and work towards a positive vision for our communities. These promising practices demonstrate how building meaningful contact between diverse populations, positive communications strategies, and engaging civic and community leaders can help create a climate in which all people can thrive.

My Neighbor Is Muslim

This study guide was created by LIRS (Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service) for local congregations or other discussion groups to open up a much needed dialogue and build understanding about Islam in local churches and communities.
