Come and explore God's heart for (im)migrants and refugees in our world today by searching the stories of immigration in the Bible. This conference seeks to empower pastors and Christian leaders with tools to positively and proactively serve their immigrant communities, and to mobilize Christian leaders into social action. Learn from pastors, scholars, and activists about what it means to care for immigrants in the Church, the academy, and the public square.

Meet the Speakers
Mygration Christian Conference is for you if...
1. You are tired of polarizing conversations on immigration. We seek to transform the narrative of (im)migration by beginning with the Bible rather than politics. By doing so, our hope to teach Christians how to have healthier conversations on (im)migration in light of God's Word.
2. You have a desire to faithfully serve immigrants in your community. We will provide you with the tools and resources that are necessary to begin positively and proactively addressing the spiritual and social needs that immigrant communities face on a daily basis.
3. You want to join a movement of Christians who are passionate about loving God & neighbor. We believe that the gospel can transform not only individuals, but also a society. Therefore, our hope is to work together share the good news of the Jesus Christ in word and deed.

What others are saying!
"Fresh wind word of God. That is Mygration Christian Conference. From the speakers to the stories to the curation of the conference, every aspect offers revelation on God's heart that's woven throughout the stories of scripture and the stories of our lives. This Conference offers a fresh wind word of God that is deeply needed in a world where the stories of migrant people are marginalized. By centering the stories from margins, this Conference offers an opportunity for all of us to be empowered in our own mygration stories."
