The biblical call to welcome the sojourner and love our neighbor lay at the heart of the ELCA’s ministry with migrants. We live God’s calling by advocating for fair and generous immigration policies. The AMMPARO program ensures that the church’s historic leadership in caring for migrants and refugees endures across a growing network of welcoming and sanctuary congregations and synods. All these are examples of how we can venture “towards an ever greater we” in recognition of our shared humanity.
Join Giovana Oaxaca, ELCA Program Director for Migration Policy, and Mary Campbell, ELCA Director of AMMPARO, to learn more about how Lutherans advocate on pressing migration issues and how leaders can model this important ministry in their communities.
