“And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ…”
The purpose of the Outreach Ministry is: to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone we meet through personal witnessing, and sharing the Word of God, to provide spiritual, educational, and social events and activities throughout our country, our state, and our local communities that will promote Godly relationships, and to equip individuals to serve one another throughout the world. Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8
Society is feeling the devastating effects of economic climate. City of Refuge Christian Center believes that God is our resource in this declining economy. Here at the City, we are committed in helping educate and assist with unemployment in the community to achieve gainful employment. We know through the obedience and commitment to Christ, it is He that will enable us to network with local businesses to assist and inspire the hope in God’s people that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
We believe that no life is beyond the reach of God’s power, and we envision a future in which countless prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their families, are redeemed, restored, and reconciled through the love and truth of Jesus Christ. We believe in being equipped and trained to spread the Gospel and nurture disciples behind prison walls, so that men and women become new creations in Christ – not repeat offenders. We will prepare Christian inmates to become leaders of their families, communities, and churches once they are released back into the community. We will support inmates’ families, helping them become reconciled to God and one another through transformative relationships with local churches.
The church ministry offers qualified counselors for the total person: 3 John 1:2; “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou may prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prosper.” City of Refuge Christian Center realizes that in God’s Word there is an answer to every problem, circumstance, and situation. City of Refuge Christian Center offers routine Christian and Clinical counseling for the whole man. God desires that man’s whole body, spirit, and soul be restored and presented to Him as a living sacrifice. Here at the City, we also provide biblical resources to assist in the education and healing process of the total existence of man.
Our desire is to touch the lives of hurting, lost people beyond the four walls of our church. We have the opportunity to minister one on one through the privacy of Christian radio and the Internet. We want to reach people who need the Lord when they are alone in their home, in their cars, where no one else can reach them. Let the Lord use you to help us proclaim the Good News that Jesus Christ saves and transforms lives. We invite you to reach out and touch lives by praying with us and by donating to this cause to expand this ministry and outreach through the airwaves. Coming soon…

After confinement and homelessness, basic necessities like clean, appropriate clothing are imperative for everyday wear and for obtaining and keeping a job. Many homeless families and ex-prisoners are without a supportive family. Returning to society with no basic clean clothes or the financial ability to acquire them, can be very discouraging. The importance of proper clothing is significant for success and feelings of self-respect.
We will take good used clothes donated by our members and their families and friends and give them away free to those in need. Please help us gather these items. We are in need of clothe racks, shelves, tables, large plastic bins with lids, hangers, clothes and shoes for children, women, and men, business wear for adults who are in search of jobs, and clothes for new mothers. Please donate today. We Thank You!
