Ministry:

Serving Refugees in the Dallas area through education and family services that help meet the practical needs of refugees and to share with them the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Servant Life partners with a local ministry in Dallas serving refugees from Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. More than 80,000 refugees and special immigrants are resettled in the United States each year, and Dallas currently hosts more than 200,000 refugees. Many refugees are from non-Christian backgrounds, but most are very open to receiving practical aid and are seeking a message of hope, peace, and good news. Our partner incorporates the gospel message into everything they do. Gospel presentations and Bible lessons are a part of almost every program, event, meeting, and class, and they share this news openly and lovingly to refugees—not once, but daily. We believe that the kind, consistent repetition of the gospel in both word and deed is what God has called us to for His glory. And we trust in His promise that He will call all of His people faithfully to Himself: from every tribe, tongue, and nation. His message is not just for a few but for the nations!

What will my team be doing? 

Volunteer teams get to help with education, family services, and gospel presentations to refugee adults and children. Volunteers develop meaningful relationships with refugees and can share the love of Christ with people who have been through very trying and difficult circumstances. Teams will learn compassion as they meet people who have experienced pain and suffering, and they will experience joy as they take part in sharing the good news of the gospel and the love of Christ with some of our country’s newest residents. Activities might include Bible lessons, outdoor games, reading groups, swim lessons, and more.
