Why do we serve in the refugee crisis?
Our first refugee outreach was Spring 2016. Throughout the Bible, we see God's heart for those displaced from their homeland. In the past few years, hundreds of thousands of people from nations completely closed to the Gospel have fled war and corruption to Europe, where they are free to hear the Gospel message.
How We Serve Refugees
In Greece, we have worked in refugee camps, served in day centers, distributed provisions, evangelized and discipled.
The most beautiful thing about serving refugees is that they come to Europe seeking hope, freedom, and healing, all of which are only truly found in Jesus -- and we get to share this message with them!
In January 2017, we even gathered with 22 other YWAM bases to do a mass-outreach to the refugees in Athens. In the months to come, we are sending out a YWAM team long-term to northern Greece!
