Last October, hundreds gathered in Ohio at Cedarville University for the G92 Immigration Conference to equip a new generation of leaders to respond to immigration issues in a biblical way. Instead of listening to partisan sound bites, conference speakers and attendees looked to the Word of God – and specifically the 92 references to immigration or “the stranger” in the Old Testament alone.
Throughout the Southeast, state-based immigration bills have been signed into law over the past two years, and there are more planned for the future. As in Cedarville, students, pastors and national evangelical leaders will gather to look to the Word of God for guidance on immigration issues as they play out across the region.
On February 23, 2012, Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama will follow Cedarville’s lead and host the G92 South Immigration Conference. The gathering will look to promote a national and local level conversation about immigration in a way that honors the example of Jesus Christ and the written Word of God.
