We have some exciting news!
There is a new initiative started within the Alliance family called RAIN, which stands for Refugees and Immigrants Network. The Central Pacific District, especially Raed Awabdeh and our Arabic Ministry in Sacramento, is a front runner in getting this off the ground nationally!
Welcoming our Global Neighbors
with the Love of Christ
RAIN has launched with a new website and will be kicking off with a planning meeting at General Council the end of this month. Please go to www.rainalliance.org to find out more!
The Purpose of RAIN is Three-Fold:
- Welcoming: Alliance churches welcoming our global neighbors with the love and compassion of Christ, as He has welcomed us into His Kingdom, is the heart of this network.
- Equipping: Focus is on equipping our Alliance churches in welcoming ministries that are useful for reaching global neighbors within their local communities.
- Training: Partner with academic organizations to train practitioners worldwide in ministry strategies that address the needs of traumatized refugees and immigrants, and those who serve them.
