Refuge Student Ministries is a ministry of Calvary Hill Baptist Church in Mesquite, Texas. It is an outreach, discipleship , and community for Junior High, High School, and College students. Calvary Hill has had a long running successful ministry to young people, but in 2001 there was a unique change not only in strategy but in name as well.
Refuge Student Ministries was started to be a safe-haven for students who can find a family of brothers and sisters in Christ, where they can feel accepted, loved and pushed forward in their faith. Today, Refuge ministers to well over 100 students, we do not say this as a means of boasting, but just to say that the Lord has used Refuge in a mighty way in our community.
We have regular weekly times where we get together. Wednesday night is our Refuge worship service, where we encounter God together in song and study of his Word. Sunday Mornings, we have Refuge Remix, which is a small group time to reaffirm our Wednesday night’s study, followed by our church’s congregational worship. We also encourage our students to join our congregational Sunday night study entitled NightLight, which is a separate topical discipleship study led by Pastor Neil .
All of that is just what occurs on a weekly basis and that is not even to mention our quarterly fellowships, special Bible studies, camps, retreats, ect. We have been blessed by a loving supporting church with great parents and adult involvement which enables this ministry to thrive.
So if you are looking for a place where students will be loved, accepted, and have a blast,while at the same time hear truth, be challenged and pushed to see Christ as Supreme; then Refuge Student Ministries may be a great place for you to be a part of.
