Hope for refugees in Europe

To follow Jesus means to minister to the physical and spiritual needs of those who are hurting. With thousands of refugees daily seeking Refuge from war, famine, rape, and murder, GEM is positioned to be the hands and feet of Jesus in Europe. Will you be a part of what God is doing by going, giving, and praying?

Introducing Hope and Refuge

A unique opportunity

Millions are fleeing from the tyranny of war, famine, and heartache. In fact, this is the largest movement of people in modern history since the WWII. For most, Europe offers the only hope of safety, and many risk the very real threat of death on their journeys. Often, these people are seen as a problem, and while our enemy can use people to kill, steal, and destroy, God sees each  and every person as a unique and loved creation. These are our neighbors, and we want to introduce each and every refugee to the God who loves them.

Called to serve

We are called to be His hands and feet. These are our neighbors, and God loves each dearly.

"He ensures that orphans and widows receive justice. He shows love to the foreigners living among you and gives them food and clothing. So you, too, must show love to foreigners." Deuteronomy 10:18-19 (NLT)

"I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these … you did for me.” Matthew 25:40 (NIV)

How Can I Contribute?


Millions of refugees are running to Europe to escape war, murder, rape and radical regime change. Most of them have never met Jesus.

Are you called to help by empowering others? Your gift will enable GEM to send and equip, to minister, and to introduce those who are hurting to Jesus.


Are you also called to serve by going to Europe and sharing Jesus, praying, passing out water, food, and blankets, and more?

Whether you want to go for a couple weeks, a couple years, or for the rest of your life, we'd love to connect and discuss the possibilities.
