about the refuge

The Refuge Youth Ministries exists to create a safe place for students 7th-12th grade to learn about the Truth's of life, as seen through God's Word.

Each week, dozens of youth ages 7-12th grade get together to have fun, meet new people, and learn about God’s plan for their lives.


Our goal is to be a place where students can learn about God in a way that is on their level and relevant to where they are in life. On Wednesday Nights, we come together for a time of exciting worship, engaging teaching, and an atmosphere where students can truly be themselves.

A note to parents: We understand the value of our young people. Here at The Refuge, we are committed to the students of Princeton and the surrounding area. We believe in strong family values and understand that without parent’s support, this ministry would not be successful.

If you have any questions or would like to talk to a member of The Refuge Team, call us at 763.631.4858.
