Information for Churches
Perhaps you've noticed that several Iraqi families have moved into your community. Your church would like to get acquainted with them and find ways to serve your new neighbors. But how can you begin?
Begin by cultivating a loving heart, a listening ear, and the habit of prayer. Look for opportunities to learn about other cultures and develop skills for cross-cultural communication. There are lots of resources on this site, including the article "How to Start a Cross-Cultural Ministry," that can help you prepare to move forward in faith.
The Jesus Film is a great way to share the gospel in the "heart language" of your Iraqi neighbors. Campus Crusade for Christ has produced this beautiful film of the gospel of Luke and translated it into over 800 languages, including Standard Arabic, Kurdi, Assyrian and Armenian. Your church can buy a video for less than $20 and sponsor a "Iraqi Night" to show the film and begin a dialogue. Ask Iraqi leaders in the community if they would like to see the film and if they'll help you invite other families.
To order the Jesus Film, visit Jesusfilm.org. Or order by phone from Campus Crusade at 1-800-432-1997.
