During this workshop we will look at what Scripture has to say about refugees and why God cares about forcibly displaced people. We will look at some key terms and statistics that will help us understand global refugee realities – including how people find their way to Canada. Then we will consider the needs of displaced people in various phases of their journey and how the strengths of a local church provides an ideal context for their recovery from the trauma of forced displacement.

This workshop will be led by team members from International Association for Refugees (IAFR) Canada. IAFR’s mission is to help people survive and recover from forced displacement. We seek the welfare of refugees in partnership with local churches. We currently have projects in Canada (Winnipeg, Hamilton, & Toronto), Uganda, Malawi, and Lebanon.

We believe God is calling the Church to engage in life-giving ways along the Refugee Highway. The goal of our training is to equip people, congregations, and organizations for ministry among forcibly displaced people that is fruitful, ethical, and faithfully Christian.
