Stories of compassion.
Meet refugees who have fled their homes out of desperation to journey toward safety and refuge. These stories were gathered at transit camps in Slavonski Brod, Croatia, and Sid, Serbia. As refugees have found themselves in these places along their journey, they have been served by volunteers who are there on behalf of NCM and the Church of the Nazarene.
Featuring Dr. David Busic, General Superintendent in the Church of the Nazarene. Visit compassionconference.com for more.
The refugee crisis continues. Millions of individuals, each with a story of loss, are on a desperate journey to seek safety and an opportunity to live with dignity. In Jordan, local Nazarene churches are ministering to refugees in their communities. By giving food to those who are hungry, providing water for those who are thirsty, and welcoming those who are strangers, churches continue to respond to Jesus’ words in Matthew 25:35.
Since the war in Syria began, more than 4 million people have fled their country. Most went to neighboring countries, including Jordan and Lebanon, where they have been living in poverty in tents or inadequate shelters. Now, hundreds of thousands are making their way toward Europe and abroad. They are all seeking safety and dignity for their children and families. And all along the way, Nazarene churches have been there to meet needs and offer a glimpse of God's love.
A 10-year-old girl shares her story of having to flee Syria when an airstrike destroyed her family's home. As a refugee in Jordan, her family was living in poverty and she was unable to attend school—until a Nazarene school gave her a scholarship. Now, she has hope for a future.
The Compassion Conference is a global gathering that will inspire you to imagine how the church can live out God’s call to compassion and equip your community for holistic, transformational ministry. The event, which is sponsored by Nazarene Compassionate Ministries, is an intentional space where you can connect, collaborate, create, and begin to change the world.
We all have dreams, hopes, and aspirations. Discover how Eva and Angela's lives are changed, even though they live thousands of miles apart, through a simple act of compassion.
