We recognize that there are many ways to worship our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. "All things were created by God and for God" (Colossians 1:16), so all of our gifts and talents can and should be used to praise our Father in heaven. If God created it, we should try to validate it in our church by turning it back into praise.

Refuge Student Ministries
Throughout history God has used young people to carry out His divine purpose. We believe this generation of youth is no exception. Our desire and passion is to empower teenagers to make life choices based on the truth they learn in the Bible and through the leading of God's Spirit. our youth ministries equip students to navigate life and prepare them for future success.
We serve students from 7th - 12th grade and assist their parents in teaching them to be influential men and women of God. There is a specific ministry, The Gathering, for college students and young adults.
Weekly Sunday morning service, Sunday school, Wednesday night youth group and special events create an engaging environment where students can experience God's presence and begin to explore God's purpose for their lives.
Men's Ministry exists so that men have a place to grow in their relationship with God, families and other men. We believe that through social, service and spiritual events we can achieve our goal of moving closer to God. We love to have fun, work hard and eat great food.

The focus of Women's Ministry is to enable women of all ages to connect with other women and to fellowship in a warm, friendly atmosphere due to the presence of God. We believe EVERY woman matters.
Within this ministry, our vision is that:
Through the connection of relationships and programs that WM offers, women will be drawn to salvation and a desire to find a place of service in the church.
Through mentoring, we would desire to raise up the next generation of leaders who will, in turn, focus on both church and community service.
The PFN Production Ministry exists to support all we do at church through the use of technology. We use various means to communicate the message of God's love and hope as well as enhance our services. The sound, projection and video systems are all included in this ministiry.
