Be the hands and feet of Christ in the Local Community
Believing that our influence, efforts, and impact are multiplied through partnerships with like-minded groups, we seek and develop alliances with Christian ministries and caring groups in our community. We encourage City of Refuge members to select and serve where their interest and abilities lead them. For help identifying your best place of service, contact Brandon Fremion.
We would like to highlight an opportunity for you to serve The Forge this Christmas Season.
