Refugee Hope Partners exists to love their refugee neighbors with the hope of the gospel in partnership with the local church. They engage, equip, and encourage refugee families with the hope that all may thrive. Their core values are Gospel First, Respecting the Dignity of All, Helping without Hurting, Whole Person – Holistic Gospel, and Partnership. These core values drive their mission with the focus always on the Gospel.
Their programs, activities, and relationships consciously avoid imposing their cultural standards on the lives’ of refugees, fostering patterns of dependence, or treating people as a means to the end of their own growth or achievement. They respectfully and sacrificially walk alongside their neighbors as they grow in their relationship with God and others. They commit to proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Refugee Hope Partners walks alongside over 600 refugees from over 30 countries in the Raleigh, NC area.
Pray for deepening relationships, open doors/hearts to gospel conversations, and ultimately that God would draw people to Himself.
