Refugees and internationals come to North America seeking security, opportunity and prosperity. Most often, they enter the country unable to speak, read or understand the language. They come with tremendous dreams and practical needs, yet the inability to acclimate makes them vulnerable to manipulation and abuse. In order to protect them and help them adapt, the Church can extend a hand and provide selfless relationships. Genuine friendships offered by the Church can help refugees and internationals get familiar with their surroundings and stay safe in their new home.

At the Clarkston Ministry Center, you can participate with us in two ways. You can join us to serve the needs of the local community as a volunteer. Meeting those needs takes partnership from multiple churches, partners, and individuals who are committing to seeing the light of Jesus shine brightly in the community.
You may also join us for an immersive vision trip to gain a better understanding of serving refugees and internationals throughout North America. Tour the town, meet the locals, enjoy a meal with refugees, and receive training that’s applicable in your own community. You’ll quickly understand why we way that in Clarkston, you are the foreigner.
