You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem
and in all Judea and Samaria,
and to the ends of the earth

Acts 1:8b

Jesus tells us that we will be his witnesses in our hometown (our "Jerusalem"), our neighboring communities (our "Judea"), places that cross cultural boundaries (our "Samaria"), and to the ends of the earth.

Refuge Church supports over 30 Missional Partners who are living this out vocationally. These are individuals, families, and partner organizations working both locally and throughout the world to further His Kingdom.  Some have a large capacity to connect us with their work, others a small one, and some are engaged in sensitive work and are not represented here.  All are part of the missions panorama of Refuge Church!

Pray for our Missional Partners

Each day of the month we feature a Missional Partner to lift up in prayer.  Joining our Refuge Church Missions Prayer Partners group will give you access to the latest prayer letters, updates, and any photos we receive from our partners to guide your intercessory prayer for the Lord's work through their ministries.
