MOHLER’S HOME CHURCH THIRD AVE BAPTIST IS HOSTING THIS MINISTRIES EVENT
Glorify God by partnering with local churches to love refugees and immigrants.
“We are intentionally focused on cultivating long term relationships by making ourselves as accessible as possible to refugee and immigrant communities. We pursue our vision through three main initiatives: (1) operating a Welcome Center embedded in an ethnically diverse neighborhood, (2) coordinating Welcome Family Teams to introduce local churches into the lives of refugees and immigrants, and (3) hosting various medical/dental/sports clinics and events that serve as relational connection points for local churches and internationals.”
RELATIONSHIP-driven programs, not just community centers
“We believe in the transformative power of human relationships. We introduce compassionate and holistic support to refugees and immigrants in our communities as we partner with local churches. Our Welcome Family Teams, Welcome Center, and various events all serve to connect local church members into long term relationships with refugees and immigrants.”
“Refuge Welcome Teams are trained groups from local churches who befriend refugee families and help them transition into life in a new culture. Whether it’s grocery shopping together, riding to a doctor’s appointment, or celebrating a refugee’s first birthday in America, Welcome Teams have innumerable opportunities to love refugees.”
“Where a refugee might otherwise feel lonely and isolated, Welcome Teams are able to come alongside them and let them know that they are not alone on their new journey in a foreign land.”

NOTE:Real Estate interest on the part of this ministry could prove a conflict of interest as a “ministry”.
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
WELCOME TEAMS, ENGLISH MENTORING, HOME HEALTH & SAFETY CLASS, WOMEN’S TEA, LANGUAGE-SPECIFIC BIBLE STUDIES, ASYLEE PROGRAM, LOUISVILLE UNITED, COFFEE, ENGLISH CLASSES
The above efforts all fall under the problematic Faith Based Partnership Models which makes funding form the Federal Government and other internaitonal and private organizations available to participating ministries and churches. VERY Dangers and a conflict of interest and inhibits ministry of the Gospel or any”explicitly Religious Activity by law.
Mohler attends a Baptist church which pastor by one of his disciples which is doing “Community Service “model of Social Justice WOKE ministries including Public School involvement, Foster Care Training , AND Refugee Resettlement Volunteer Training with partners from the Refugee Organizations and The University of Louisville along with private Real Estate interest who support the Refugee Resettlement with housing.
According to a former Muslim who is a Christian refugee in the US -All “Religious Refugees” must apply for immigration to the US through the United Nations and Muslims are “moved to the front of the line right behind LGBTQ “Refugees” and Christians are placed at the back often waiting for 5 years or more“.
So Mohler’s church like Summit of current SBCPresident J D Greear are training their people to be the welcome wagon and use their churches as “Welcome Centers for Muslim Refugees ” along with the LGBTQ refugees at the front of the line.
“Refuge is partnering with churches to help families who are seeking asylum due to dangerous conditions in their home country by helping to provide Housing, Food, & Fellowship.”
ALBERT MOHLER’S IMPACT ON NAMB
This is nothing new for Mohler as his former pastor Kevin Ezell is using the resources of North American Missions Board /Send Relief and the SBC Cooperative Programs to do the VERY SAME.
