According to the United Nations, nearly 80 million people are displaced and many of them cross borders to seek refuge in other lands. Having received over 40,000 refugees from 60 nations through the years, Clarkston, GA (just outside of Atlanta) is known as the most “diverse square mile in America.” During the “Square Mile Mission,” students will meet and hear the stories of refugees, serve in ministries such as after-school homework and sports clubs, and share their faith. They will also be exposed to long-term ministry to refugees, including small business and community development projects.

Service component:  Mission Trip
