POBLO (People of the Book Lutheran Outreach) International Ministries is a mission movement which trains and sends ethnic missionaries to minister in partnership with congregations desiring to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to new Americans. POBLO has trained and sent over 100 ethnic missionaries to work in the U.S. and foreign mission fields since it began in 1993. POBLO workers are also gifted to share Christ with new Americans in their own language. All ministries are carried out through one-on-one relationships which are often begun through human care outreach. POBLO’s human care outreach programs include English classes, citizenship classes, sewing classes, student tutoring, refugee resettlement, and clothing, food, and furniture distribution. Hospitality and friendship are powerful expressions of Christ’s love which underlie the entire ministry. Love is the basis through which American and ethnic Christians develop relationships of trust so that they can share the Gospel naturally with their ethnic neighbors.
