Conflict and persecution around the world cause tens of thousands of people to flee their homes every day and become refugees. They leave behind their entire way of life and face the daily realities of uncertainty and distress.

The world tells refugees they are not wanted, but we serve a God who desires a relationship with displaced people. He beckons each one of them to their eternal home and offers a gospel that knows no bounds. 

As Christians, we are uniquely positioned to minister to refugees. Our compassionate response to the physical and emotional needs of refugees must be coupled with a desire to satisfy their spiritual needs through the eternal hope found in Jesus Christ. 

Do you want to lead your faith community in refugee ministry, but you're uncertain where to start? WMU empowers individuals and the local church to respond to the Global Refugee Crisis.
