Who Is Refugee Memphis?
Very simply, it’s Mark & Cindy Morris and a few followers of Jesus, committed to being His hands and feet among refugees here in Memphis. Over the past few years God has brought a growing number of refugees to Memphis through World Relief. They come from Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, and other places. The refugees come with many needs. We have found great joy in befriending, helping and sharing Christ with the newly arrived as they build a new life in the US.
What do we do?
Each week we serve refugees by transporting them to doctor visits, tutoring in English, helping children with homework, organizing picnics and translating for them. We meet weekly with team members and volunteers for prayer and mutual equipping to effectively communicate the Christ-centered message of God’s Word.
How can you partner?

3. Volunteer – Tutor a refugee child after school; offer transportation to an appointment; bake a cake; befriend and sip tea with a refugee family. We are happy to take you along with us.
