Fast food is efficient, it’s reliable, it’s predictable and it’s incredibly unhealthy in large quantities. We desire to be, not fast church, but slow church because love, grace, compassion, mercy, justice and relationships take time to grow. We desire to be slow because we want to taste and see the complexity of God, not just our own salt.
Most churches aren’t yearning for a small budgets; small congregations, small spaces; but that’s the culture of Refuge. We will never have the best show. We can’t compete with U2; Hamilton; Disney World. Our weaknesses are evident as a purposely small church, and we see this as a calling and a gift from God.
