what is the
We are a network of Christ-followers who share a common passion to see the Church minister the whole gospel amongst those who have been forcibly displaced – including the refugees and asylum seekers who arrive in Europe.
As a Christian network, The Refugee Highway Partnership Europe seeks to connect and mobilize leaders, churches and organizations to effectively engage with refugees
Why are we called The Refugee Highway Partnership?
Our group is a subset of the Global Refugee Highway Partnership.
We derive our name from the observation that there are some well-worn paths around the world that refugees travel upon; air, water and land routes leading to safety and the simple hope for a normal life. These paths make up the refugee highway. Like any highway, there are entry ramps, crossroads, roundabouts and exits ramps.
Every continent on the globe finds itself connected to this winding network of roads. Many of the major entry ramps onto the highway are in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, the countries of the former Soviet Union and Latin America.
For many highway travelers (includes formal refugees as well as those seeking asylum), the final destination will be Europe.

For most of its history the RHP Europe leadership team has consisted of a relatively small core team. However, over 2020-2021 the decision was made to intentionally grow, diversify and strengthen the team with more people able to share the responsibility. We would like to introduce the RHP Europe Leadership Team.
