Making The Most Of A Beautiful Weekend

It's not often that you can work comfortably outside in January in Ohio while wearing short sleeves.

The brothers of Phase One took advantage of the beautiful weather to have a great work day this weekend.

It's always amazing how much a motivated group of guys can do!


Cleanup On The Hilltop

Our Ministry is about more than recovery. It's also about serving others.

Some of the men spent one night this week cleaning up trash along West Broad Street in Columbus.

It's a simple, but meaningful way to show our love for our neighbors and our gratitude for all that God has provided.


Handing Out Courage Crosses

We love handing out Courage Crosses to the men who make it through their first week in our Ministry.

Last Monday, six men entered the first phase of our ministry. This week, all six were still there to get their cross. It is truly a blessing to see God working through these men!

January Encounter

We celebrated our January Encounter on Saturday.

It's a special monthly event we hold that represents a chance to foster a real encounter with God and with your brothers from all phases of the ministry.

Men in the ministry as well as alumni meet, play games, enjoy lunch, and share stories, before holding a praise and worship service.

It's also an opportunity for The Refuge staff to come together, hold meetings, plan, and pray together.
