Trent and Elizabeth DeLoach share a passion to reach the nations. As Send Relief missionaries and leaders at Clarkston International Bible Church (CIBC), they invest their lives in people from around the world in Clarkston, Georgia, a city sometimes called the most diverse square mile in the United States.
Launched as a traditional church in 1881, everything changed a century later when the city became a refugee resettlement site. Now, CIBC is where people from diverse backgrounds find common ground. It hosts seven churches and 12 missions groups on its campus and acts as a hub for Send Relief compassion efforts.
“Nearly 2,000 refugees a year resettle here,” says Trent. “Our neighbors speak many languages, and most have substantial needs the church can meet.”
