Immigrants are transforming the Church in the United States. Immigrant congregations are growing faster than any other segment of evangelical churches, according to research by Dr. Todd Johnson at Gordon-Conwell Seminary. While the arrival of immigrants into our communities presents an exciting opportunity for the Church, it also raises new questions.

  • How do I help someone navigate the complexities of the U.S. immigration system?
  • Are immigration lawyers the only people who can provide legal advice?
  • As a church, how do we welcome immigrants into our community?
  • Can we ordain undocumented immigrants?
  • If the immigrants in my community are undocumented, do they have any immigration options?
  • Is there anything I can do?

World Relief can help you answer these questions.

HOW TO GET A VISA FOR PASTORS AND OTHER CHURCH STAFF

World Relief Immigration Attorneys provide representation on a variety of visas for church pastors and staff. World Relief will review immigration documents and determine eligibility; prepare the applications and all other correspondence for submission to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS); advocate on your behalf before USCIS and the Department of State (DOS); and monitor the case for future immigration deadlines and extensions. World Relief is also available to advise churches and denominations on employment issues regarding foreign nationals. Click here for more information. 

 

The Federal Government, through the Board of Immigration Appeals, allows accredited, non-lawyers associated with non-profit organizations to practice immigration law. World Relief recently launched its Immigrant Legal Support Network to assist these organizations and individuals in obtaining proper recognition and accreditation. The Network offers yearly subscriptions to provide both legal and technical support to nonprofits engaged in immigrant legal services. World Relief is currently offering special introductory prices; contact us for more information. Because each program is unique, World Relief offers different levels of service in an attempt to accommodate a variety of organizations. Click here.
