Refugee Ministry Dallas-Fort Worth area: Refugees are coming in large numbers to the U.S.  Over 3,400 will be resettled in the DFW area this year.  Most of them have spent years in a refugee camps and are seeking a better life for their families.  They face overwhelming obstacles as they seek to acclimate to life in America, learn English, find jobs and navigate everyday living in a culture very foreign to them. Due to limited funding the services to help them resettle are inadequate.  We as Christian can reach out to them with the love of Christ and provide opportunities which help them to:

  •   Learn English - ESL classes for all ages
  •   Special Events for children and youth - sports camp, music camp, day camps, outings to events and places in the local area
  •   Teach how to navigate our Healthcare system and basic health literacy - teach basic healthcare practices,  how do you know when to go the doctor
  •    Hold Dental and Medical clinics
  •    Teach Employment skills - how to fill out an application, interview, responsible work habits and ethics
  •    Help teach how to drive and take the test for a drivers license
  •    Prayerwalk the apartment complexes and neighborhoods where refugees live

The opportunities are unlimited and as creative as the individual and group would like to be.  God can use you with the gifts and passions He has given you in refugee ministry.
