The Nations Have Arrived in the Akron Area God has brought the nations to our doorsteps. The Bible is filled with the instruction that the Church is to love those who have crossed over into our land. World Relief believes it is essential to partner with the local Church as a foundation for seeing the most vulnerable transformed economically, socially, and spiritually. WRAkron pursues true partnership out of the genuine conviction that our vision cannot be achieved without the gifts, people, skills, and varied resources of the whole Church.

God has blessed Akron:

World Relief and refugees in Akron are continually blessed by the network of Gospel-centered churches in the area that God has empowered to selflessly leverage their lives for refugees. Reaching the nations no longer exclusively means traveling across the world and engaging in international missions. Serving the nations is now part of both global and local, or “glocal”, missions.

Pursuing a partnership with WRAkron: WRAkron believes that true partnership with a local Church comes both from members of the local Church’s congregation and its leaders using time, talent, and treasure to support newcomers in Akron. Additionally, the partnership is mutually beneficial. WRAkron wants to be in a relationship with the local Church, supporting it in prayer, time, and resources.
