Our foundational ministry is the Refugee Program, through which we have hosted over 3,000 refugees from more than 30 war-torn countries around the world.
Our work with refugees has led to other programs such as the Walk In Peace campaign, in which we work with many Nicaraguans who are trying to help war victims and rebuild their country.
In our Latin American Visitor Program we host Central and South American church workers at Jubilee. They have a chance to study English, speak in churches and to other groups here, and return home better prepared to be bridges of understanding. In the fall of 2007, we welcomed our first Middle Eastern Seminar participant, a Coptic Christian from Egypt here on a similar program. We welcome invitations for these people to come speak.
We work against the death penalty, feeling it contrary to the spirit and teaching of Jesus. By visiting prisoners, helping their families, and speaking out about what we learn, we work to change attitudes about this issue.
We engage in peace and justice work. We have organized delegations to places of conflict, have taken medicine to Iraqi children's hospitals, work to promote interracial friendship in our own part of the world, write and speak widely about peacemaking - all in an effort to be active followers of Jesus in a world that badly needs the hope that he brought to us.
We take care of the land, seeking to be good stewards of the resources God provides.
