Migrants, pastoral care Pastoral assessment, Pastoral intervention to migrants


Pastoral care as a frontline ministry responsible for interfacing with people in migration situations requires models to ensure effective pastoral intervention. This essay contributes towards designing a migrant pastoral assessment and intervention framework within a congregational ministry setting hinging on the notion of migrants as ‘in-between’ people. This model is supplemented by a congregational analysis and hermeneutical model for effective ministry to migrants.
