This website and the discussion materials were created through a collaboration between:
The European Evangelical Alliance (EEA) brings together both the national Evangelical Alliances of Europe and a large number of pan-European mission agencies. Seeking Christ-like transformation in Europe, EEA serves as the dynamic centre for equipping and resourcing, the European wide trusted Evangelical voice, and the connecting hub for greater strategic impact. EEA powers the collaborative Refugee Campaign.
Courage for the Journey/NCM Central Europe seeks to be in solidarity with displaced persons who are traveling and settling across the Balkans, Central Europe, and Scandinavia. Partnering with other organizations when possible, we seek to fill the spaces that are often left untended, which leads to a diversity of ministry ranging from education, to integration, to aid, to faith conversations, and to the holy activity of simply being present with another person.
Refugee Connect was established in 2008 to connect local churches with ways to help refugees. By 2016, our focus was on the youth – particularly those traveling alone. Today, we work with churches, Christian NGOs and associations, and individuals across Europe that help refugee and asylum-seeking children and youth who travel alone (i.e., unaccompanied minors). In April 2017, we launched the Mobilised for Unaccompanied Minors (MUM) Network to connect these ministries, learn from each other, raise awareness, and develop programs and resources to address needs and fill gaps.
