CITY OF REFUGE
Colombia is a country with a history marred by the devastation of the narco wars, infamous for violence and, to many, hopeless.
But the City of Refuge, a rehab ministry and church in the heart of Medellin, disagrees. This ministry is a stubborn light shining BRIGHT in the darkness of Medellin.
The people of Ciudad Refugio (as the Spanish-speaking locals know it) have dedicated their lives to serving the most vulnerable populations in Colombia- the homeless, addicted, prostituted, trafficked, and displaced.
They aim to BE the truth and love of Jesus through offering humanitarian assistance and developing strategies to bring physical, emotional, and spiritual lift to the communities they serve.
We’re honored to continue to serve those who serve, lifting up their arms in their feeding programs, serving the men and women in their rehab program, building relationships with their leadership, and encouraging refugees in one of the largest camps of internally displaced people in the world.
We have the revelation that our Father is good and He brings life, and we like to do the same - by walking with and building a life-giving relationship with our Colombian friends and using that opportunity to represent the Kingdom around the world.
