Arrive Ministries

A nonprofit organization

$5,060 Raised by 20 Donors

Arrive Ministries lives out God's command to welcome refugees and immigrants.

For over 20 years, Arrive Ministries has pursued hospitality by resettling refugees, providing direct services and sharing the love of Christ by mobilizing the Church. Even in a pandemic, that’s still happening!  

Our purpose is to see life transformation for refugees, immigrants, and the Church. We accomplish this by loving practically, socially, and spiritually by mobilizing the Church, providing direct program services, and calling our communities to respond biblically.

Our Church Mobilization Ministries is fruitfully engaging hundreds of volunteers and connecting them to refugees. We thank God for:

  • 99 new volunteers in the past four months -- that makes over 400 individuals actively loving refugees!
  • Dozens of refugee women empowered through Salem Arts Exchange (SAE) Sewing and Afghan Women’s English Language Learners (AWELL)
  • More than 40 Refugee Life Ministries (RLM) teams connected to new refugee families
  • 31 new SALT volunteers tutoring Somali adults and families 

Our Direct Program Services team has seen tremendous impact this year, including: 

  • Resettling 102 refugees who fled conflict in Afghanistan, Burma, Moldova, Somalia and Ukraine
  • Filing reunification petitions for 224 people still separated from their families
  • Connecting dozens of refugees with jobs

Our hearts long to be doing more. Our desire in 2021 is to meet the growing need by adding staff to serve more refugees and volunteers. Will you make a year-end donation to Arrive Ministries?

Your gift will help us:

  • Grow our successful AWELL and Salem Arts Exchange programs to new locations and expand our Homework Help program to assist more children with distance learning
  • Recruit and equip 40 more Refugee Life Ministries church teams
  • Serve more families through our Immigration Legal Services, Employment and Resettlement teams
  • Expand mobilization of SALT volunteers to learn the Somali language, conduct Discovery Bible Studies and acquire valuable ELL tutoring skills

We’re honored to help restore hope, and we know there’s potential for much more.

Our goal is to raise $600,000 by December 31, 2020. Will you please join us? 

Please consider making a year-end financial donation to Arrive Ministries. Your gift will expand the work we do so that more lives are transformed by God’s love working through human relationships.

We have $20,000 in match funds from Bell Lumber & Pole. Any new donor, or gifts received above 2019 giving levels, will help us meet this match!
