Refugee Ministry

Our Vision

Our vision is to serve the people who have emigrated to the United States as refugees from many nations. Refugees have come from persecution, famine and war torn areas. We are opening our arms to people of great need and helping them settle here in America.

The Ministry

Our major focus is on youth programs as well as support for ministries that provide food, shelter and job ministries to families in need. Our sports program of Upward Basketball brings opportunity for children to develop skills and character. Our hope is to provide families with survival help as well as day-to-day support to beginning life in a strange land.

    Our Partnership

    We partner with three great organizations in Clarkston Georgia:

    • Clarkston International Bible Church
    • Friends of Refugees
    • World Relief of Atlanta

    Opportunities

    There are opportunities for coaches and groups to help with Upward Basketball. Clarkston is the most ethnically diverse square mile in the United States. Children from Bhutan, Nepal, Myanmar, Somalia, Sudan, Bosnia and many other countries are waiting for your help.

    There are opportunities to help in humanitarian projects such as:

    • Food delivery
    • Ministry in homes
    • After school programs
    • English classes

    A Caring heart is THE requirement for ministering to refugees.
