Refugees from a least-reached part of the world
Our primary strategy is mobilizing the Church to use sports as a platform for reaching out to our neighbors through hospitality for relationships. An intern's presence here will open opportunities for greater capacity to do meaningful events and activities that will strengthen the existing relationships and extend the reach to new refugee families.

Interns will have an adventurous spirit with flexibility, will possess a learner’s heart and attitude, participate in our weekly church community prayer group, a variety of sports (soccer, cricket, cycling, run club, and hiking), home visits, one on one mentor meeting, and introductory greetings. Most of the interns’ time will be spent cross-culturally.
