First Family

Mr. Ira L. Bostic Sr. and Dr. Bawanna S. Bostic have a God-ordained mandate to impact the world. They serve the people of God with excellence and integrity. Mr. Bostic has diligently served alongside his wife, founder and senior pastor of The City of Refuge Christian Center in Cocoa Florida. Together they have touched the lives of many in their county, state, and throughout their great local community. As parents of four children and two grandsons, they firmly believe that the best way to raise successful children is to be an active role model and demonstrating the love of God.

This Christian non-profit organization is financially supported by contributions from their church members, friends and partners of the ministry. They are called to present the Gospel to the lost, feed the hungry, clothe the poor, minister to the elderly, widows and orphans, visit prisoners and reach out to people of all ages and in all walks of life.

Their desire is to teach people how to apply biblical truth in every facet of their lives and encourage Christians to impact every aspect of the world around them. With the prayers and support of their church members, friends and partners around the world, they present an inspired and effective message of Christ and His love for people worldwide.
