4. About the Ministry:
One of every 7 persons in the U.S.is an immigrant. In many areas there are no trustworthy, affordable immigration legal services. Therefore, many immigrants seeking to apply for benefits for which they are eligible – such as the new program for parents of US citizen children – will fall prey to immigration scams. The US Dept. of Justice has created a program to allow non-profits – such as churches – to obtain training and recognition to provide authorized immigration services. Reliable church-operated immigration legal clinics, staffed by qualified volunteer attorneys and/or trained, accredited volunteers, can meet a genuine need and demonstrate God’s love to “the stranger,” with much Kingdom potential.
