Gensalaam is a great way to join in that mission close to home, in the neighborhood of Clarkston, which is home to many refugees and immigrants from Muslim-majority countries. The name Gensalaam comes from the words Generation Salaam–salaam is a commonly used greeting from Arabic-speaking and Muslim countries.

Who Can Join the Ministry?

Gensalaam is comprised of college student volunteers who spend one afternoon each week in Clarkston, a neighborhood just east of Atlanta that is home to a diverse community of immigrants and refugees.
