Jacob’s Well Church has had the privilege of partnering in mission through Refugee resettlement in our own community because of our volunteer relationship with World Relief since the founding of church in 2006.

As a new church plant, World Relief helped us discover a passion for hidden people in our own city that were waiting for the Church to...‘See & Serve”.

We were exposed to the ministry of 'welcoming and hospitality' that helped us develop a practical expression of gospel mission that anyone in our Church could participate in no matter what their age, education, gifting or schedule. Refugee ministry has helped us discover Jesus with skin on, and given us a simple path of discipleship for growing believers and developing leaders in our church.

World Relief helped us catch the vision of missions at home, through the loving, hard work of their committed and experienced staff.

Their mentoring helped instill a ‘serving DNA’ in our young church that has helped us grow a healthy body and opened doors of ministry and mission in our city that we would never of dreamed possible.

I would heartily recommend partnering with World Relief to any pastor or Church looking for a way to awaken members to the gospel work of Refugee Resettlement right in their own backyards.
