Refugee & Immigrant Ministries

Welcome New Neighbors with World Relief

For over 25 years, we have partnered with World Relief to provide friendship and services to refugee and immigrant families. We seek to love and serve these new neighbors by helping them rebuild their lives and walking alongside them.


“For I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”

— Matthew 25

This fall Resurrection is helping World Relief to welcome increasing numbers of families and individuals arriving from Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Congo, Sudan, Nepal, and other countries.

You can join other Rez members to help serve as:

On-Call Helpers

Provide airport pick-ups for newly-arriving refugees, rides to appointments, and help with apartment set-up. Flexible timing, only when it fits your schedule (usually 48 hr notice).

Friendship Partners

Walk alongside a new neighbor by visiting weekly for an hour or two for at least six months.

Good Neighbor Teams

Join a small team of others at Rez who commit to checking in and visiting on a weekly basis for at least six months
