Our Vision

The Refuge Discipleship Program (RDP) has been established to help college-aged men and women (18-23) grow in their relationship with God and with others. The Refuge Discipleship Program is an intensive 10-month discipleship program (August 1 – May 31) created to accelerate the spiritual growth of the young adults involved, raising them up as disciples of Christ and Mighty Men & Women of God. 


Our Scripture

In Colossians 3:1-17, Paul urges us to set our minds on things above and not below; put to death the things of the flesh and embrace the things of the Lord. “And whatever [we] do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”


Our Hope

We have created RDP to be a place for young men and women to Experience, Explore, and Embrace a life surrendered to God.
