A Faithful Witness
As Christians working with refugees and other forcibly displaced people, we long to witness to Christ faithfully through our lives and ministry. Yet evangelistic efforts among people in acute distress can lead to some complex choices.
Should spiritual outreach and delivery of basic aid be intertwined? How do we maintain a faithful and fruitful witness without manipulating people who are in great pain?
Join this course to explore these questions and more. Together, we will look at principles of ethical Christian witness and common areas of concern for evangelism in the context of humanitarian aid.
Lessons from the Refugee Highway
IAFR training is not a one-size-fits-all program. It is principle-based rather than method driven. Lessons are informed by our team's collective years of hands on ministry experience. Our passion is to help people and local churches discern how they can engage their unique context in fruitful ways.
