ABOUT THE MISSION:
The mission of Refuge of Hope is to help and encourage Christians to reach refugees living in our cities by loving and serving them with the love of Jesus. The refugees living in our midst come from different circumstances, cultures and religions that we sometimes do not fully understand. This can be intimidating to know exactly how to reach out and love them. Hussam Yazbek, a refugee from Syria, by God’s grace was brought out of the darkness of Islam and into the Truth, Love and Light of Jesus many years before coming to the United States. He has devoted his life to loving and sharing the Gospel with these suffering people. His desire is to see Christians build lasting relationships with Muslims through the genuine love of Christ.
The Refuge of Hope promotes educating American Christians on the beliefs, culture and mindset of Muslims. It also reaches out directly to refugees by organizing opportunities for fellowship and the sharing of delicious traditional food for these precious people and the local churches in their midst.
Our mission as followers of Jesus is to love God and love others as ourselves. As scripture says, "Perfect love casts out fear." (1 John 4:18) Will you join us by stepping out of the comfort of our everyday lives to reach a people whom God brought directly to our community?
"And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd." (John 10:16)
