Did You Know?

The number one need for the U.S. immigrant and refugee population is to learn English in order to survive in America. A close second is a friend to walk alongside them as they learn. When both things happen, not only do immigrants and refugees gain a valuable skill, they have an opportunity to find Christ and experience healing.


These Friendships Look Like:

  • Helping them enroll their kids in school
  • Assisting them in finding housing and jobs
  • Explaining to them what doctors are communicating
  • Protecting them from scammers
  • Connecting them with community services

The Impact

  • Iglesia ACyM de Lawrence in New York had 102 students on their second week of classes. A Nicaraguan family from their ESL class began attending their church within a month!
  • CrossPoint Alliance Church in Akron, Ohio, a church of 75 people, has seen over 1,000 students from 61 nations in the past 10 years! The program was led by 163 volunteers from 37 churches.
  • Iglesia ACyM de Manassas in Virginia held a workshop with five Hispanic churches in 2022. Five of those students recently gave their life to Christ, and one was baptized!
