Speaker: Sandra Ryan

Organization: The People's Church

Seminar Description:
Any global perspective on mission will see that the people of the world are on the move and Emmanuel God is in their midst. Together we explore how God is at work through global migration, both throughout history and in our present politically charged immigration reality. We also discuss some very practical and effective ways the Church can, and must, strategically journey with people to make migration ministries fruitful.
