Transforming life in the heart of America’s most vibrant refugee community
Clarkston is one of the largest refugee communities in the US.
Clarkston is the most densely populated square mile in Georgia and the most diverse in all America. Illiteracy, poverty, gang activity, and abuse are common. It's in these dark times that we offer hope.
WHAT WE DO
We make disciples through
We serve Clarkston’s refugee youth through discipleship centered on unconditional love
and hope. Clarkston is one of the largest refugee communities in the U.S. Illiteracy, gang activity, and abuse are common, and lead to poverty, violence, and despair amongst the youth. We mentor youth through spiritual and academic programs that meet and grow students at
their different levels of faith.
Upon graduating our alumni are equipped to become the next generation of leaders who continue to bring good news and hope to their own communities
HOW WE DO IT
Community & Commitment
We immerse ourselves into the lives of those we serve by moving into the community and doing life on life with Clarkston's youth.
What is LIFE ON LIFE? We follow Jesus, who inserted himself into the community he served. Our lives are deeply intertwined and our homes are always open. We go on camping trips, open up our pantries, and provide care in times of crisis. We celebrate holidays together AND we mourn tragic losses together.
In these everyday interactions, in the messiness of life, trust is built. Through that, the message of hope, then healing, and finally new life and transformation.
Meet our student and leaders and hear the impact they've experienced
