“Burst” Grant to Resettle Refugees in the Northeast


Congratulations to Rev. Ben Krey and Prince of Peace, Philadelphia, who received one of Wheat Ridge Ministries’ first “Burst Project” grants.  Ben will be working with the congregation to help resettle new refugee families arriving in their community. In partnership with Lutheran Children and Family Service, they will use a former parsonage to temporarily host families to acclimate them to their new community. 

Burst Project grants are one-time grants for a human care ministry project designed and led by young adult leaders in the Lutheran community.  In addition to the grant, participants will receive professional consultation and feedback from Wheat Ridge staff; be connected with a ministry mentor, when possible; and participate in a regular gathering of other Burst Project leaders.  For additional information regarding the Burst Project Grant Program, please visit the website at or contact us by email at ">.
