Who are we?


The Refuge is a mission center and Christian community in Broomfield, Colorado dedicated to helping hurting and hungry people find faith, hope, and dignity alongside each other.

We love to throw parties, share stories, find hope, and practice the ways of Jesus as best we can.  

We laugh a lot. We cry a lot. We dream a lot.
We do a lot with a little.

The Refuge is a community of practice, with an eclectic mix of regular gatherings, special events, and ways to partner with us to serve the local community. ​
