C & R C


Our vision is to reach the most unreached people groups in Philadelphia through equipping local churches to engage with international in their community through holistic outreach.

Where we live in Northeast Philadelphia, a fourth of the population are first generation immigrants. We work primarily among Arabic-speaking refugees/immigrants from North Africa and the M. East. We serve our international neighbors by holistically and practically meeting needs. Rachel teaches ESL with GROW ministry. As a birth doula and educator, she serves expectant mothers whenever there is a need. Together, we work with new refugee families to help them resettle and thrive. We run a community garden and event space in our backyard, to build relationships and community.
Chris also serves as a volunteer missions pastor at a local church revitalization, to help Christians learn to love, serve and share the Gospel with their international neighbors.


Prayer Requests:

  • Pray for our relationships, and for the Lord to open the minds of unbelievers to see and respond to the Gospel.
  • Refugees arrive here with a lot of traumas, needs and struggles. Pray that we would be able to meet practical needs to help them resettle and thrive.
  • Pray for the health of our family spiritually, mentally and physically so that we can be strong to do the work God has called us to do.
