 Equipping, encouraging and empowering refugees to live fully and completely through their identity in Christ.

WE BELIEVE there’s a difference between “fitting in” and “belonging.”

Fitting in happens when we are willing to change ourselves and make compromises to find acceptance. Belonging happens when we come as our imperfect, authentic selves and are embraced because of it.

We believe we all belong to God, who is extravagant love. And when we belong in love, to love and through love, we believe we develop values that compel us to love extravagantly, too.

Belong Together is rooted in Jesus’ Great Commission to carry the Gospel into all the world. Our vision is to see families, communities and nations transformed by a movement of God’s love among young refugees.

why we belong
