refugee momWelcoming the Stranger


Refugees had homes, jobs, safety and stability. Then, fleeing for their lives from war, violent militias or ruthless persecution, they lost everything.

There are almost 20 million refugees in the world in 2016 — more than half are children. One church can’t solve this international crisis, but Northminster can make a big difference for one refugee family!

July 15, 2016 Update

Northminster has partnered with RefugeeOne to bring a Syrian family to Chicago. Father, mother, and four small children all arrived safely after a long flight from Jordan (where they fled in 2013).

As you might guess, there are a lot of new things for them to adjust to. So they are settling in and mentor teams are scheduled to start visiting soon.

Thank you all for your generosity and support — it couldn’t have happened without you!
