DASH Network was created with replicability in mind. We yearn to see the Church rise up and take a stand with the stranger, the vulnerable and the oppressed. If your community feels called to serve asylum seekers in your own city but don’t know where or how to start, please reach out.
“‘When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the LORD your God.”
