At Refuge, it is our desire to make disciples that makes disciples, and as a pastor, it is my calling to “equip the saints for the work of the ministry” just like it says in Ephesians 4. We want to help every individual at Refuge move through this lifelong process of Encounter, Equip and Engage. This is why we started our jump start classes to help people get a jump start and some direction in their walk with Christ. There our 4 classes that are 1 hour each with lunch and childcare provided. We start with basics class (salvation, mission/vision, strategy of Refuge and structure), Encountering God (how to pursue God through spiritual disciplines), Equip through community(knowing How God has shaped me for ministry and getting involved in serving in my passions) and Engaging the world with the Gospel (How do I share Jesus and live on mission).
We’ve provided video teaching below to watch prior to each of the classes around your schedule and then we’ll spend the 1 hour with a more in depth discussion, sharing a meal and getting to know each other, time for you to ask questions and to look at how we apply the information in our lives. Not matter where you are in your walk with Christ, you’re welcome, and we’d love to have you join us at Jump Start!
