GUEST: John Barnett
More than 68 million individuals are currently displaced due to religious persecution, war, or other violence. Globally, one out of every 110 people is either seeking asylum, displaced within their own country, or a refugee. Many of these individuals seek refuge in cities throughout the United States. But how should Christians respond to refugees? How can we show compassion to them and seek justice for them? And, most importantly, how can we impact their lives with the gospel of Jesus Christ? That’s what we’ll be discussing today on the Urban Ministry Podcast. My guest is John Barnett, a social entrepreneur who has served refugees in Africa, Europe, and North America as well as working to create sustainable economies among the urban poor in Algeria, Uganda, and France. This is an episode that you won’t want to miss!
