Welcome To Refugee Ministry!
‘For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’( Matt. 25:35-36) NIV
Netherlands is one of the countries that provide refuge to people who have been forced out of their countries due to conflict, genocide, religious persecution, political persecution, or natural disaster. God is bringing the world to our doorstep; He is giving the local churches the opportunity to participate in World Missions through reaching out to the refugee community. We are a ministry that is committed to reaching out to refugee communities with the love of Christ and the wonderful message of the Gospel.
