We invite you to join us, along with fellow pastors, church planters and mission leaders, for this one-day event to explore approaches, resources and partnerships for developing church-based ministry to immigrants, refugees and international students.
The Church Connection Tour will feature case studies from churches in the US and Canada, table group discussions and presentations from leaders with on-the-ground experience.

Payne and a special edition recorded webinar of Evangelism and Church Planting Receptivity and Best Practices Among First Generation Immigrants by Ed Stetzer, President of Lifeway Research, and Lizette Beard, Project Manager for LifeWay Research.
