Phase Up!

Monday is a day of transition at The Refuge. 

Every week on that day, we welcome in new men and women at our Open Orientations. 

It's also the day that men and women who have been part of our Ministry for 30 days move from Phase 1 to Phase 2. 

This week, three guys are making that move. Timothy Dunbar, Tim Lane, and Brett Burgett all completed their first month, and are now going from our home in Vinton County to Lancaster to continue their journeys of growth and personal transformation through Christ.


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!

 

 


Orientation On Memorial Day

We will hold Orientation (intake) for both our Men's and Women's Ministries next Monday, May 28.

It is Memorial Day, so it's a great opportunity to attend our Orientations and learn what The Refuge is all about, without having to take a day off work.

Do you know someone struggling with addiction? We will welcome new women into our Ministry at 9:00 am and new men at 3:30 pm. 

Learn more about who qualifies, what to bring, and what to expect at TheRefugeOhio.org/men and TheRefugeOhio.org/women

 


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.


Friday Night Fun

After a long week of work, the brothers of Phase 4 enjoyed a cookout Friday night in Columbus.

It was a great night of good food and fellowship.


Live Free From Addiction

Ready to change your life, but not sure where to turn?

Our FREE Ministry can help you leave addiction behind.

We have Orientation (intake) every Monday.

On Monday, May 21, we will take in one woman and several men. We want YOU to be one of them.

For men 18+, learn how to qualify, what to bring, and what to expect at TheRefugeOhio.org/men

For women 18+, learn how to qualify, what to bring, and what to expect at TheRefugeOhio.org/women

 


Courage And Strength

Courage and strength are two things we see a lot of in both our Men's and Women's Ministries.

It's not always easy to admit you have a problem with addiction.

It's not easy to join a Ministry that lasts 13 months.

Sometimes it's not even easy for people to accept Christ into their lives.

Our Women's Ministry just opened in March, and we're already seeing God at work in the lives of the sisters there.

One of them shared her testimony at a Monday Open Orientation about how a relationship with God had helped her overcome obstacles she never could have before.


Work Day At Phase One

We had a work day at Phase One on Wednesday.

The guys got out to work in the beautiful weather to mulch and plant flowers. 

It's a wonderful opportunity to cultivate and care for the wonderful place that God has provided for us.


Only A Few Spots Left!

We are so grateful to everyone who has already signed up to be a part of our 2018 Golf Classic.

Thanks to your generosity, there are just a few spots left. We are extending the registration deadline to Wednesday, May 16 to fill every spot.

Once those spots are full, we will close signups. If you want to play, this is your chance.

Sign up today to be a part of this great event at TheRefugeOhio.org/golf


Women's Ministry Bearing Fruit

Our Women's Ministry just opened in March, and we're already seeing God at work in the lives of the sisters there.

One of them shared her testimony at a Monday Open Orientation about the transformation she had seen and felt in herself.
