World Relief has identified four different levels of participation that a church or individual can have. Every church can participate and welcome immigrants living in their communities. Churches and their affilitated nonprofits have an opportunity to engage on a variety of levels depending on their resources, locations, and established connections in immigrant communites.
Level 101: Churches who are in an exploratory state, seeking to examine what the Scriptures say regarding immigration in order to discern how God would have them to interact with and serve immigrants in their community.
Level 201: Churches who are ready to love and welcome immigrants into their congregations, and/or give financial resources, or individual volunteers to ministries serving immigrants in their local community.
Level 301: Churches and nonprofits embeded within or connected to immigrant communities and whose goal is to be a hub of leadership and accurate legal information for undocumented immigrants.
Level 401: Churches and nonprofits that open an immigrant legal services program that provides legal information, advice, and assistance with immigration applications.
