An Inside Look at Refuge

Refuge Temple adheres to a TEAM concept. We feel that teams best produce the Kingdom Agenda. In the words of E. Stanley Ott, "There is no greater sense of passion than the one that grows when you undertake a mission on behalf of Jesus Christ and do it with others who are also loved and sent by Jesus Christ." With this concept, we intend to build a ministry of people laboring together to serve as lands over their teams but as facilitators to foster the vision of the house through the Spirit of the Lord and His love.
The Men of Refuge (M.O.R) Team is designed to build up praying men of God to take their God given place of leadership within the body of Christ.  The team's goal is to unify the brotherhood within RTCOF through prayer sessions, authentic fellowship and other planned activities that cater to men.

The Women's ministry serves to enrich the spiritual and social lives of the women of God through various In-Reach and Out-Reach activities.  This team is ordained to teach the ways of God, set higher standard of holy living, fellowship among the sisterhood and to be examples of God's chosen ladies.
