But the Lord is with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten.

Welcome to Refuge Christian Ministries International

Refuge Christian Ministries International's theme is:  "Training Pastors & Leaders...Giving Hope to the Hopeless!"  In the first 10 years of our ministry, our focus was on the 4-14 Window (children).  While children still are the heart of our ministry, we also minister in many other ways, as you will see as you travel through this website.  Refuge CMI accomplishes this great task in a  number of ways including:

Sharing the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ

Providing outreach to the needy

Training national workers to teach, preach, and help their own people more effectively.

This is done with direct hands on ministry and through partnerships with other ministries and organizations; both here and around the world.   All of this happens through the prayers and financial support of those who believe in what we are doing for the Kingdom of God.  Thank you for your support!

"And in His Name will be the HOPE of All the Nations!"  -  Matthew 12:21 (NLB)



Refuge Christian Ministries International is a faith-based, missions focused  ministry that provides outreach, resources and training to needy people in the USA and around the world, while showing them Christ's love and giving them hope for the future.

LOCALLY (Arizona-Texas):

Refuge Christian Ministries International provides  training on reaching lost friends and neighbors through a workshop called "Out of Our Seats and Into His Streets...While We Still Have Time!", ST Mission Team workshops on how to be effective on the mission field and how to prepare to go, a Spiritual Giftings Profile workshop, and local outreaches & festivals.


We lead teams to Indian Reservations in the Southwest, and to the Appalachian Mountain area where poverty is prevalent. We also assist local churches in reaching their communities through events such as the HOPE Festivals.   If you are interested in participating in these short-term mission trips or festivals, please contact us to tell us of your interest and we will send you information.



Starting in 2013 (our 10th Anniversary Year) our primary focus became training indigenous pastors and workers to be more effective in their churches and ministries.  We will continue to also focus on reaching the children, and humanitarian activities.  However, training pastors and leaders will be our primary focus.


Belize  --  Haiti   --   Dominican Republic   --   Jamaica   --   Puerto Rico  --  Guatemala


We participate in crusades; ministry outreaches; providing pastors' seminars; and Bible School training.  We also participate in feeding programs; sponsorship programs; provide equipment and supplies for orphanages amd ministries; and bicycles for pastors and leaders.  We also collect children's clothes and medical supplies which we send to various locations.  These activities will continue as the Lord provides.

What Keeps Us Going?

When we see a family blessed by a box of groceries and the relief in their faces, it makes it worth it.  When we see a smiling face like the one here of a little Haitian boy attending a feeding program in NW Haiti, it makes it worth it.


When we see the hand of God touch a life with healing or salvation, it makes it worth it.  Those are the things that keep us going, along with the faithful, ongoing support of you our friends who make doing all this possible.  On behalf of the many we have been able to help and minister to over the years with your help, let me say a great big THANK YOU and God bless you!

Why do we go to the nations of Central America and the Caribbean Nations?  This video by Don Moen says it best:

"Without the generous support of Refuge Christian Ministries International and its supporters, I don't know how we would have coped during those difficult times."    --  a beneficiary of RCMI assistance
