Welcoming our Global Neighbors with the Love of Christ

At the Refugee and Immigrant Network (RAIN), we see an incredible opportunity to engage our Alliance churches to join us in strategically welcoming, building relationships, and sharing the gospel with refugees and immigrants.

Matthew 25:35 "...I was a stranger and you welcomed me."

We, at RAIN, are deeply saddened and concerned for the tragic situation in Afghanistan.

Join us in praying for the Afghan people. We are praying for those who will stay and those who are being displaced.

RAIN is currently working with CAMA as we prepare information and training to help resource Alliance Churches who want to engage.

The purpose of RAIN is three-fold


Together, Alliance churches welcoming our global neighbors with the love and compassion of Christ, as He has welcomed us into His Kingdom, is the heart of this network.


We focus on equipping our Alliance churches to engage their local global neighbors through English as a Second Language (ESL), secondary resettlement services and other welcoming ministries


We partner with academic organizations to train practitioners worldwide in ministry strategies that address the needs of traumatized refugees and immigrants, and those who serve them.

Pray for RAIN… as we believe God for Psalms 2:8

“Ask of Me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, and the ends of the earth your possession.”
