The Clarkston Refugee Team

Led by Clarkston Leadership Team

This team is currently partnered with Clarkston International Bible Church and World Relief to send TMU students as relational volunteers to help meet the needs of refugees from around the world while building relationships with them for the sake of sharing the good news of Jesus with them. Our hope is that students will adopt various refugee families from unreached nations and see them come to Christ.
