A Church-Based Solution to the Immigration Challenge with Diane Martinez from Immigrant Hope

December 20th, 2020

While 2020 has been all about the pandemic and the presidential election (among other things), the controversial issue of immigration in America remains one of our nation's most pressing challenges. Because of this, the EFCA has launched an innovative, church-based solution that provides help at the local level. In this episode, Diane Martinez, Executive Director of Immigrant Hope in Santa Barbara, CA, talks about how the strategy of Hope, Help, and Home is reaching the "least of these" with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This Department of Justice certified ministry based at Shoreline Community Church (EFCA) was recently featured in Christianity Today and the Santa Barbara Independent. If you  are interested in how you can help get an Immigrant Hope center set up in your community, or just want to learn more, reach out to Diane at diane.martinez@immigranthope.org. Immigrant Hope is yet another example of the EFCA fulfilling its mission of "Multiplying Transformational Churches Among All People."
