Effective March 31, World Relief Memphis will be moving our Poplar offices out of the Deerfield Building and joining our Connect Language Center at Redeemer Baptist Fellowship, 5340 Quince Rd. We are incredibly grateful for the generous hospitality and missional alignment of Pastor Jeremy Wright and Redeemer Baptist, and we look forward to consolidating our ministry programs and staff in one location to better serve the diverse refugee, asylee, and immigrant communities throughout Shelby County as well as be more central for our various church partners.
Will you please join us in praying for the following in this transition?
Clear communication with all of our active resettlement and immigration legal services clients, that they know we will continue making every effort to better serve them throughout the move and afterward, and that confusion about our whereabouts be prevented
That our current landlord, Graber Investments, be blessed with a new tenant quickly
Wisdom and thoroughness as we map out the intricate details involved in a space renovation and move
Contractors who embrace our mission and vision as they serve both Redeemer as our new landlord, and World Relief Memphis throughout the space renovation needed to accommodate our offices
Financial provision for the construction materials and labor (framing, electrical, HVAC, drywall, painting). You can donate HERE.
Willing volunteers who will come alongside us and Redeemer for clean out and construction where possible (see photos!)
Protection, safety, and provision for packing and moving days at the end of March
Increased energy, effectiveness, and unity as a ministry team as we begin anew under one roof

Most participants have been attending a multi-week "Migration In Light of Scripture" class offered by World Relief and Fellowship Memphis.
We are personally grateful for your show of support at so many critical points in the past, and gain great confidence from believing you will be praying for us and coming alongside us during this transition as well.
If you have any questions regarding the move or connections that you believe would be helpful, please do not hesitate to reach out to us!
