The Foundations classes offers a clear overview of the beliefs, theology, culture, expectations, and church vision of the Refuge Church of God. This class serves as a pre-requisite and introduction to membership and volunteer involvement at Refuge Church of God.
This Foundations class is intended for those who seek membership or to become more involved in ministry at the Refuge Church of God in any capacity.


The class is offered within an eight-week rotation period.

Upon completion of this eight-week course, class members will be classified as “members”, and able to volunteer in various areas of opportunity within the Refuge Church of God.

At the final class meeting, class participants will be presented with areas that are open for volunteer participation. This will be the first opportunity for class graduates to get connected in ministry.

Class participants that successfully complete this course will be presented before the congregation for Foundations Graduation (per schedule availability) and receive a certificate of completion. After successfully completing Foundations, the next best step to consider is Lead 101.
Next Steps
Have you ever asked the question, “Are leaders born or made?” This interactive course will guide participants interested in discovering and developing their spiritual gifts for leadership in the church. The key principle of this course is that spiritual leadership begins with the development and practice of spiritual disciplines and continues with the understanding and application of one’s Spiritual gifts in determining a leader’s place of service in the body of Christ.
