Serve

The greatest way to lead is through service to others, just as Jesus himself said in Matthew 20:28. 

 

We are passionate about serving. The Refuge Church partners with various organizations to love those around us. We believe that as we serve our church, city, and our world, God will change it. If you would like to serve in-house at The Refuge Church, in the community, or internationally, we can help.

 

“Love Loud” is what we call serving in the church or outside its walls.
