Welcome! Melanie and I are so glad you decided to stop by The Refuge’s website. The Refuge is a healthy, growing community of people who don’t just “do” church but who will “be” the church. On this site you will find information about our staff and leadership, opportunities to become a part of events, meetings, and activities that are not just religious gatherings, along with the times of our services, directions, and what to expect.

From its simple but exciting beginnings in 2004, The Refuge has grown into a multi-site church that is impacting this region of North Carolina, our nation, and countries around the world. There are many different ideas about what a church should look like, what a church really is or isn’t, and why church is or is not relevant to life. Again, we don’t have all the answers, but we are not afraid to explore and investigate together. The ultimate goal for us is His presence, which causes us to take on His likeness. We also desire to build God’s Kingdom, not just our castle. So if The Refuge is not what you are looking for, you will find several other churches in the area listed on the home page of this site.

The excitement at The Refuge is contagious and we want to extend an invitation to you to join us in person. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what you discover.
Pastors Jay and Melanie Stewart
