Jason and Angie met in a buffet line in Tel Aviv, Israel. Yes, nothing spells r-o-m-a-n-c-e like riding a spitting camel together! They're hitting their 15th anniversary in June and have enjoyed those 15 years of being involved in various aspects of ministry and international missions together. Now back in good ol' California, Jason and Angie love to spend family time with their son and daughter, travel whenever it's possible, and connect with and equip believers.
Geoff & Bethany are so cal natives, love hanging out with their three kids, serving Jesus on staff at Refuge and cheering for the Angels, Lakers, Ducks & Raiders...yes the Raiders!
Bob and Nancy were married in 1981 and have one married son and are both retired. Nancy loves to walk in downtown Seal Beach and stop at the bakery. She also loves to bake and cook. Bob coaches high school and college soccer. They both love to travel, dance and take long drives.
We met in 1998 while going to Long Beach State for physical therapy. We have two kids, Grace & Jade. It's always been our pleasure to walk through life with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ here at Refuge, and we hope that God continues to allow us to do so!
Charlie and Laurie were married in 1995 after meeting in a dojo. Yes, a karate studio! These once aspiring black belts have since been blessed with three beautiful daughters. Laurie has a passion for teaching math and enjoys cycling and yoga. Charlie loves to cook and longs to do more home improvement projects. As a couple they enjoy hiking, skiing, holding hands, and following Jesus. Actually they enjoy doing just about anything together, even washing dishes and doing taxes!
