Evangelical Christians in Southern California have been speaking out and praying alongside Dreamers – young people who contribute in many ways in our communities. Dreamers teach our children, labor in the technology industry, are business owners but most importantly their lives are valuable in the eyes of God no matter what role they play in our country. We have cried from frustration at the lack of political will in our government; have hoped and participated in public witness actions locally and nationally for a resolution that respects the dignity of Dreamers and their families; and have taken action by calling and visiting our local legislators on the importance of passing a bill that will allow a permanent solution for Dreamers.

Thousands of Christians will gather in college campuses and church on Sunday, March 4, 2018 to pray, light candles in symbol of the hope we have in Christ to turn the hearts of those who hold the fate of Dreamers in their hands and do right by them.

The Church is here to say: We Are With You Dreamers! God will not leave them alone and neither will the Church of Christ.


  • Sign up for Dreamer Sunday!
  • Hold a prayer vigil in your Bible study group, at Chapel (college students), missions group or main congregation. 
  • Show a video available in the M25 website and hear from Christian Dreamers who are actively advocating for a bill that will bring a permanent solution to DACA.
  • Connect with Matthew 25 and host a House Meeting so that you and your church can learn what else we can do to stand with Dreamers and immigrant families in your community.
