Arrive Ministries

Salem Arts Exchange is under the umbrella of Arrive Ministries, which is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to the cause of the refugee and immigrant and an affiliation of Transform Minnesota and a partner with World Relief, an international humanitarian organization.

New City of Nations Church

New City of Nations Church exists to advance the reign of Christ among all peoples through a redeemed community of all peoples.


In 2014, New City of Nations Church started Salem Arts Exchange with Kris Engel, Trudi Whitson, and Anna Behnen as part of their Asset Based Community Development Initiative. This ministry initiative aims to help refugees rebuild their lives by investing in their God-given talents and by pointing them to Jesus Christ.


We are delighted to partner with Bethlehem Urban Initiatives to further expand Salem Arts Exchange into a thriving, creative, and productive ministry.
