Diaspora is a Greek word, meaning scattering like sowing of seeds by a farmer. In the past, the term diaspora referred to dispersed Jewish people, but today it is used broadly to refer to all dispersed people like immigrants, expatriates and refugees.
Diaspora ministries is to serve all kinds of dispersed families and communities worldwide. The migrant population in the world has reached record numbers, and United Nations called 2015 the Year of the Migrant. We launched this initiative to expand the ministry to all immigrant communities around the world.
One of the project under this initiative is resourcing refugees/migrant ministries in different parts of the world. The current migrant movements in the world is considered as the greatest of our times. Our Diaspora Initiative is for refugee/migrant ministries – researching, educating and networking refugee/migrant issues, and mobilizing skilled volunteers to assist.
