En Conjunto Latiné Ministries of the Southeastern Synod invites you for a training session to become an ELCA Guardian Angel. The Guardian Angel program provides spiritual and physical accompaniment of unaccompanied migrant children and families through their immigration court process.
One component of the AMMPARO initiative, Accompanying Migrant Minors with Protection, Advocacy Representation and Opportunities, previously known as the Unaccompanied and Migrant Children Initiative, is the ELCA Guardian Angels program. The program is the visible expression of our church’s ministry of presence in the lives of our women, men and children who are facing the unknown. As we participate in this ministry, we become transformed as well. The program also seeks to build community as church together and church for the sake of the world.
