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.
Anti-Human Trafficking Team
Led by Emma McGee
Manumission is a ministry team focused on reaching the victims of human trafficking with the hope and freedom found in Jesus Christ. This team meets for prayer every week to lift up the victim as well as the perpetrators of trafficking both locally and worldwide. They also participate in monthly outreach activities alongside local ministry partners from Athens and Atlanta who are fighting this injustice on the front lines.
Homeless Outreach Team
Led by Cameron Lee
The Homeless Outreach team is seeking to minister to the homeless community in Cleveland, Athens, and Atlanta. The heartbeat of this team is to listen to the stories of people impacted by homelessness, share the story of Jesus with them while also seeing that their basic and immediate needs are met in a sustainable way.

Foster Care Ministry
Led by Bree Samples

This ministry can look like anything from watching children to raking leaves for a family. These acts of love and service are opening doors for the gospel to be shared with both the foster children and the foster families.
