"The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, A stronghold in times of trouble." Psalm 9:9 NIV
The Refuge is a new ministry of Hanover Valley. We are under the direction of Dr. Vince Wood from Providence Presbyterian Church in York, Vince is the regional director for Refuge Ministries of North America.
The Refuge is a support group for survivors of domestic abuse. One in four women have experienced domestic abuse in their lifetime, and God calls his people to protect the oppressed. The Refuge combines mentoring, group support and guided lessons through The Refuge workbook, by Pastor Shane Waldron to help women:
See the abuse Biblically,
Find healing in Christ, and
Establish new patterns
