Educational and Legal Immigration Ministries
Educational and Legal Immigration Ministries is a ministry that focuses on equipping churches and other organizations to engage the immigrant community along a continuum of ministry options. As a starting point, ISAAC provides unbiased immigration information from a Christian perspective. For those churches seeking to move further along the continuum, ISAAC helps by supporting service ministries such as ESL, citizenship, or other literacy programs. ISAAC provides technical application assistance and trains church representatives by offering seminars, conferences and Summer Institutes on basic immigration law. Finally, ISAAC provides quality immigration services to low-income immigrants for nominal fees. ISAAC provides services in San Antonio, Texas, and is located on the campus of Trinity Baptist Church.
