Refuge | High School

high school ministry

Student ministries exists to create environments and develop relationships where students feel safe, are known by the church community and adopted by and discipled through intergenerational relationships so they can live into their calling as agents of His kingdom. In addition, we partner with parents to train and equip them to help their students discover how to live life as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
