Our Story

Humble Beginnings

Our story is simple. It is a picture of how the Gospel brings together the most unlikely people. Birthed from a Bible study at a local rehab, 7 people envisioned a church vested in the community. We prayed for a church where Jesus was unashamedly worshipped. We prayed for a movement in our city where the church wasn’t separated by class, culture, and race. Little did we know that God was leading us to plant Refuge LA. In the winter of 2012 we began gathering as a small group and we launched in May of 2013. Refuge continues to watch God transform lives. We are still as passionate about Jesus as we were then. We’re convinced that only He can heal brokenness.
We started Refuge by doing 2 things: Praying and obeying. Today, we are still committed to these two things.
