Welcome to World Relief Memphis!

World Relief Memphis began resettling refugees and working with immigrants in 2012. Our prayer is that the local Church will embrace these sojourners and our mission is to equip the church to serve the vulnerable. We applaud the resilience and successes of the people we serve.

Who is a Refugee?

A refugee is someone who is threatened by ethnic, religious, or political persecution. According to the UNHCR, there are approximately 19.5 million people worldwide who have fled their homes as refugees. Each year 1% of these refugees make another life changing move to resettle to a new country. We are honored to welcome some of those individuals here in Memphis.
