Hi. I’m Pastor Rob with Brier Creek Fellowship.
If you’re a Christian moving to Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill or Cary, North Carolina, we want to be the first to welcome you. If you’re moving here from another country, our church has made it our special mission to welcome you as part of our family. We feel God has called us to support what we call our Ambassadors program.
When you arrive in the United States, we will have a Guide Family available here to greet you at the airport, and to help you settle in. For the first few weeks you are in country, your Guide Family will make time available to take you out dinner, to share their home, and to show you around our beautiful community. Their heart is to become your first friends here in Raleigh.
Our church includes expats from all over the world, you may find that you have a lot in common with your volunteer Guide Family, besides, of course, our common faith in Jesus Christ.
When I moved to the United States from Germany when I was 18, I found it to be a pretty frightening – and even lonely – experience. I love living in Raleigh – it’s the best place on earth by far – but when you first arrive, believe me, you’ll be glad to have brothers and sisters around you. Whether you’re coming to Raleigh as an H1B visa holder, a foreign exchange student, a refugee, or if you’re immigrating in any way, let a Brier Creek Fellowship Ambassador help you make Raleigh your home away from home.
Please fill out the family profile form below, and we’ll connect you with an eager Guide Family who can begin writing to you even before you arrive. We look forward to welcoming you as our brother or sister to the United States, and to the Raleigh Triangle.
Moving to the Raleigh Triangle? Welcome!
I am moving to the Raleigh Triangle. How can I be connected with a Guide family from your church?
Fill out the form below, and we will choose an available volunteer family. They will reach out by email right away.
What can we expect when we arrive in Raleigh?
Our goal is to make you feel welcome, to help you settle in, and to be your first friends in Raleigh. To that end, we:
Greet you upon your arrival in Raleigh
Invite you to our homes for a meal and conversation
Eat out with you 2 or 3 times during your first couple of weeks here (our treat)
Show you around our community and help you get your bearings
To the degree we are able, we provide assistance with logistical issues like transportation, housing, schooling, etc.
We are already in the States, and we didn't know about this program.
No worries. The Lord has led you here now, so please still reach out by filling out the form. A Guide family would love to meet you.
Is this only available to Christians and Christian families?
Every new resident of Raleigh - and of this country - is precious to us (Exodus 22:21, Hebrews 13:2). Immigrants of every religious background will find Raleigh to be an exciting and welcoming city. This particular program is designed to make sure that our brothers & sisters in Christ do not arrive here without a suitable family welcome (1 Timothy 5:8).
