Host an Ethnic Congregation

Chicagoland is increasingly diverse as immigrants from across the globe relocate their lives here.  Biblical hospitality calls us to make space for these people as valued partners in God’s great Kingdom.

Your congregation and church building could be a great blessing as a host to an immigrant congregation or ethnic church planter.

The following are resources that are available to help your congregation:
1.  Demographic studies to determine immigrant and ethnic presence in your community.  www.missioninsite.com
2.  Cultural Intelligence assessment and training.  See  www.cultureq.com
3.  Best practice insights from churches that have become host to an immigrant congregation.
4.  Coaching for hispanic pastors in Spanish.
