This is, of course, a tentative and skeleton schedule, but it should give us a sense of what we’re up against in Athens. Flexibility, as they say, is key. The Athens Refugee Center (ARC) and Tea House are the main component of the ministry. The ARC is food distribution and general assistance ministry (children’s ministry, English/Greek classes, and much more), while the Tea House is a relationship building mechanism. As its name indicates, Tea is served at the Tea House and friendships are born in conversation or over a game of chess.
