The AGC has a passion to assist AGC churches in their efforts to welcome and support refugee families in the communities where we live.
We have signed an "umbrella" agreement with the Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA) who are Sponsorship Agreement Holders with Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC). This allows AGC churches to immediately start the journey toward refugee sponsorship. Once the AGC is a Sponsorship Agreement Holder, we will assume responsibility to support all AGC churches who have existing sponsorship applications/plans underway with the C&MA, and will help facilitate future sponsorships that AGC congregations undertake.
