Embrace the Nations

Serving Internationals in Our Community

Pam Franks is the Missions Director at Glad Tidings Church. She is also the founder and executive director of Embrace the Nations, a ministry that works with multiple refugee groups in Omaha.

Reaching Refugees in Omaha

Most people have no idea that tens of thousands of refugees reside in Omaha. These individuals come from refugee camps after being forced to leave their own country under horrific circumstances. The Bible is clear that we are to reach all nations with the good news of Jesus Christ. Embrace the Nations was created to help fulfill this mandate by reaching refugees right here in Omaha who have come from countries with very little gospel witness. Our mission is to build relationship with the international community, provide the gospel of Jesus Christ in a way that can be understood and disciple those who choose to follow Him.

How we serve

The needs of refugees are complex and often overwhelming. Embrace the Nations builds trust and friendship while also meeting needs through such venues as ESL (English as a Second Language) classes, life-skill classes, health education, Bible study, outreach to children, support for teens and support for those with addictions.

In our community

Embrace the Nations also supports the city of Omaha by raising awareness about these populations. The majority of the public have little knowledge of refugees. Embrace the Nations addresses this need through awareness training. Many have benefitted from these trainings including the Omaha Police Department, other service organizations, businesses, churches, educational institutions and multiple healthcare systems in Omaha such as Methodist, UNMC and Creighton.
