Ministry Project:

Our ministry project will benefit refugee ministries across the state.

Every day, thousands of people are forced to flee their countries because of war and persecution. These people find themselves facing unknown cultures and languages. Anxiety, distress and despair become their new normal as they attempt to navigate governmental and social barriers, all while grieving the loss of family and home. The world tells refugees they are not wanted, but we serve a God who desires a relationship with displaced people. He beckons every person to an eternal home and offers a gospel that knows no boundaries. He desires us to join Him in His unshakable pursuit of refugees.

We are collecting wash cloths, full-size deodorant, full-size shampoo & conditioner, bar soap (no body wash), full-size body lotion, toothbrushes, toilet paper, feminine hygiene pads (no tampons or bladder control pads) and full-size toothpaste.

Contact Denise Bronaugh (dbronaugh@tnbaptist.org) for further information.
