World Impact:  World Impact ministry, whether it occurs locally, regionally, nationally or internationally, is a tremendously rewarding way to extend God’s grace as we place others ahead of ourselves, and serve the Kingdom with a more global perspective.

Team Goals: This team is comprised of individuals who have personal capacity to support on-the-ground workers in providing multi-level "life skills" activities  (gardening, English learning, sports camps, VBS, Performing Arts events, parenting, Bible studies, grief and loss counseling) needed to encourage refugees. Cleveland has a rapidly developing refugee population. Nine urban C&MA churches partner to provide services for this population.
