Transform MN workshop at Bethel

Tuesday, March 19, 7-8:30 PM

“If you can’t stand, you can’t dance”
Effective Responses that Empower Displaced People

As displaced people come to our communities, they face a long adjustment process and many challenges, but we know all are created to contribute and thrive. Come hear principles and stories from Pastor Jean Pierre Gatera, who was himself displaced and who continues to mentor and walk alongside displaced people making their home in Minnesota.

Pastor Jean Pierre Gatera serves with the International Association for Refugees (IAFR) and on the board of Arrive Ministries. He has been in Minnesota since September 2016. Before that he lived in Kakuma Refugee Camp, where he pastored a church and also directed the United Refugee and Host Churches (URHC).

Although those living in a refugee camp are among the poorest in the world, Pastor Gatera is a firm believer that refugees should not be seen as helpless, but as valuable people, with God-given assets, gifts, and skills.

RSVP today so that Arrive Ministries can plan for the needed materials.
