Our Vision & Distinctives


Vision – Glorify God by partnering with local churches to love refugees and immigrants.

We are intentionally focused on cultivating long term relationships by making ourselves as accessible as possible to refugee and immigrant communities. We pursue our vision through three main initiatives: (1) operating a Welcome Center embedded in an ethnically diverse neighborhood, (2) coordinating Welcome Family Teams to introduce local churches into the lives of refugees and immigrants, and (3) hosting various medical/dental/sports clinics and events that serve as relational connection points for local churches and internationals.


Distinctives – Relationships rather than programs and community centers

We believe in the transformative power of human relationships. We introduce compassionate and holistic support to refugees and immigrants in our communities as we partner with local churches. Our Welcome Family Teams, Welcome Center, and various events all serve to connect local church members into long term relationships with refugees and immigrants.
