Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6 KJV)

The Children, Youth, and Young Adult Ministry at City of Refuge transforms sinners into saints, failures into winners and followers into leaders. It does this through biblical education, discipleship training and leadership development programs offered by its various ministry teams including: the International Young Adults Ministry (IYAM), which serves as models of mature and disciplined leaders; Kids in Divine Service (K.I.D.S.)—the garden of tomorrow’s harvest; Sarah’s Daughters and Sons of Abraham mentoring; NJ Scholarship, which provides financial resources to support higher education; and Youth Legacy, which provides practical experiences for youth to lead worship services.



The K.I.D.S. (Kids In Divine Service) Ministry serve as the most critical and fertile soil in which the seeds for divine destiny are planted. This ministry is the garden of tomorrow’s harvest.

Youth Legacy

Youth Legacy reveals to teenagers a true sense of identity and purpose during the season of their lives when they are most influenced by their peers. Youth are encouraged to serve as leaders—to be an example of Godly character and maturity. They lead worship services and have input in the practical decisions made for the ministry.
