Show Notes

In this episode of We Are Vineyard, Associate National Director of Justice and Evangelism Josh Williams chats with Tina Colón Wiliams about how she experiences God as an immigration lawyer. They talk about whether the migrant issue at the Texas border is as bad as the media makes it seem, and Tina paints a picture of what the majority of migrants actually look like. They discuss the calling of the church in this situation, the impact of this work on Tina personally and how she meets Jesus in it, how she cares for her own soul, and some of the God stories she’s seen over the years.  

Tina Colón Williams is an immigration attorney, worship pastor and vocalist based in New Haven, Connecticut. Born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, Tina moved to New Haven in 2005 to attend Yale University.
