A Safe Place in Troubling Times

Support a gathering place for refugees and immigrants living in Europe.

Many refugees and immigrants enter Europe highly traumatized from fleeing volatile situations. A team of long-term workers is creating a place for them to gather as they process through their trauma and find hope, joy and peace from the Father. Your gift will establish and support the community center’s needs, from rent and furniture to the materials needed for language classes and, eventually, Bible studies and worship services. Long-term workers and national partners are committed to engaging the immigrants and refugees in new and meaningful ways to share Christ’s love. Through prayer and giving, your partnership will enable the team to have this entrée into the refugee and immigrant community.

Workers will lead activities such as trauma counseling, English as a Second Language (ESL), language courses for the host country, cultural exchanges, etc. The center will also offer a safe space for people to come and simply engage in conversation while sharing a cup of coffee or playing a game of backgammon together. Now is the chance to show the Father’s love to those who are in such desperate need of the hope and joy only He can give. Join long-term workers and national partners to be the tangible presence of Christ in this corner of Europe!

Location

North African and Middle Eastern Peoples

North Africa and the Middle East is consistently thrust into the international news as it develops into one of the world’s most enigmatic-but-influential global regions. Vast economic development typifies its urban centers, offering creative business opportunities for entrepreneurs.

Religious life permeates every society here, whether its residents are Muslim, Christian, or Jewish. Though Christianity began in this cradle of civilization, it is sometimes difficult to know if the church exists. Cities that birthed the gospel now house ornate mosques, temples, and skyscrapers. Thankfully, the church is experiencing a captivating resurgence among this region's 520 unengaged and unreached people groups.

Millions of refugees live here, displaced by war, famine, oppression, or poverty. Many are open to the gospel, seeking an anchor amid the upheaval of their lives. Pray for Christian workers as they share the hope of the gospel during this unprecedented spiritual openness.
