We’re Reaching Refugees—Will You Help?

There are more than 70,000 refugees/asylees in Tennesse. At Nashville First, we’re partnering with the Tusculum Hills Worldwide ministry to aid the displaced with anything from tutoring to transportation—while sharing the love of Christ. The need is great! Volunteer roles are available to fit any schedule. “God is moving mightily; all you have to do is show up and God will use you.” –Terry Hudgins, World Outreach Minister

If you can help with any of these volunteer roles, contact Terry Hudgins.
