Equipping and supporting effective ministry among refugees

IAFR Training

Perhaps you want to help people survive and recover from forced displacement, but you're not sure where to begin. Or maybe you are already serving refugees, but feel the need to be better equipped?

IAFR's training program will help you gain an in-depth understanding of refugee realities along with biblical perspective and cross-cultural tools to help you develop a ministry strategy well-suited to your unique context.

We've developed a robust and flexible refugee ministry training that can be broken down segments that work with your schedule. Learn more about our training and upcoming training opportunities below.

We are also happy to speak to large and small groups that are interested in understanding the refugee crisis from a biblical perspective. You can find a schedule of upcoming speaking and training events below.
