Justice & Joy’s Story

Justice and Joy advocate for displaced people groups, and serve them in the areas of immigration law, leadership development, language acquisition, and connection to resources that meet practical needs. They are building deep and authentic relationships in which they love unconditionally and serve practically as a demonstration of the love of Jesus. In the midst of these relationships, they’re purposeful about sharing stories of Jesus that reveal who He is and how He is able to work in the midst of these families’ trauma and struggles.  

About Displaced People Groups

68.5 million individuals have been forcibly displaced worldwide as a result of persecution, conflict, violence or human rights violations. We are now witnessing the highest levels of displacement on record. Two-thirds of refugees come from just five countries: Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Myanmar and Somalia.
