RC Banner - Leadership

Believers who invest their hearts, time, families, and finances in the building of a local church deserve to have confidence in their church leadership. We know people are looking for leaders who conduct themselves with integrity and respect when making decisions that affect their lives.


We Are Guided By Pastors

As Refuge Church gets started, this begins with our Senior Pastor. He oversees the day-to-day ministry and operations of the church. As our church grows, additional pastors will be added to the team. Together, our pastors serve the congregation and are responsible for the development of the spiritual life of the church.

We Are Protected By Trustees

The Trustees are members of the congregation who oversee the finances and direct the provision of the facilities needed by the church. They provide counsel to the Senior Pastor regarding the major financial commitments of the church.

We Are Strengthened By Overseers

The Overseers are pastors of respected congregations and ministries who love Refuge Church and are willing to provide spiritual protection to the church. They may be called in to help in accountability matters relating to the Senior Pastor if requested by the Pastors or Trustees. The Overseers serve as Apostolic Elders.
The Overseers for Refuge Church are:

  • Joel Brooks – Christian Life Center, Michigan
  • John Mazariegos – Iglesia de Gracia, Mexico
  • David Catron – Life Foursquare Church, Illinois
