That’s why Pastor Bryant Wright said he and his church, Johnson Ferry Baptist Church in Marietta, Georgia, have invested heavily in refugee ministry both at home and overseas. There in the Atlanta area, members of Johnson Ferry Baptist are walking alongside Syrian Muslim families who are trying to rebuild a life. They have also partnered with IMB workers overseas who are serving as a consistent presence in refugee centers and camps in Europe, Africa, and Asia.
“It’s a humanitarian disaster,” Bryant said. “It just makes sense to me to reach out with love.”
