Summer Celebration Service

On Sunday, August 12, we held a special Sunday morning service celebrating nine men who recently completed our 13-month ministry.

These are some of the highlights of the service.

Summer Celebration

Sunday, we held Celebration. It's a special Sunday morning service honoring men who recently completed The Refuge.

This time, it was nine men who finished our 13-month ministry. They shared their stories of addiction and then transformation and restoration through Christ.

If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, help is available. Go to to learn about our FREE (no cost, no insurance needed) ministry.

Alumni Reunion 2018

We celebrated our Alumni Reunion this weekend. It's an incredible day for guys who have completed our Ministry to reunite for a day of fun and great food.
It was awesome to see so many friends again, and bear witness to all of the blessings in their lives.

The Refuge Golf Classic 2018

Thanks to everyone who came out to Pinnacle Golf Club to make our 2018 Golf Classic a great success!

It was a beautiful day on an incredible course, and all the money raised will go to help us change lives affected by addiction.

We can't wait to see everyone out there again next year!



Thank You For Supporting The Refuge Golf Classic

Thanks to everyone who made The Refuge 2018 Golf Classic such an incredible day!

Congratulations to the winning foursome of John Noble, Dean Saunders, Josh Dandurand, and Garrison Ryan.

And congratulations to everyone who won prizes in our raffle and contests out on the course.

We're already making plans for the 2019 Golf Classic, so keep watching our website and social media for a "Save The Date" in the coming weeks.

Help The Refuge And Have A Great Day

It finally stopped snowing, so it's time to get outside and enjoy this beautiful weather!

The Refuge Golf Classic is coming up on Monday, May 21 at the prestigious Pinnacle Golf Club.

It's going to be a great day of golf, food, and fellowship. 

It's $125 per golfer or $500 for a foursome. That price includes 18 holes with cart at one of Central Ohio's finest private courses, plus lunch at the turn and an Italian banquet dinner. 

All proceeds benefit The Refuge Men's and Women's Ministries. 

Sign up today at

We're also accepting partnerships from businesses and individuals who want to sponsor part of the event. It's a great way to advertise your business, or honor a loved one who has overcome addiction.

Three times each year, we honor the brothers who have recently completed our 13-month Men's Ministry.
