Step 3: Attend Orientation 

Orientation is our version of what’s called “Intake” in some other places. You do not need to call to make a reservation or let us know that you are coming.

We will post the Refuge updates such as number of beds available and orientation updates on our Facebook page.

We provide transportation to the Refuge for
all of the orientations listed below.

                     The first hour is dedicated to an informational session.
  • We’ll give you an overview of what to expect the Refuge 13-month Men’s Residential Ministry.

  • Next disciples who are currently in the Refuge Ministry or others who have graduated will share their stories.

  • We’ll then hold an open Q&A session to answer any questions you may have. (You can find the answers to many frequently asked questions about our Men’s and Women's Ministry here)

  • Once everyone’s questions have been answered, we’ll ask any men and women who are interested in joining to conduct a short interview in a private room.
