Brian Carpenter and the Refuge Foundation have been fighting what he calls the “Great Lie” for years.
As Brian explains the Great Lie -- “everyone assumes church and ministry leaders are doing ok; they are at the top of their game; they are in great shape”. This is a complete lie – just look around.
Leaders are not doing well. In fact, according to a recent impact report of the Refuge Foundation, 44% of pastors seriously considered quitting in the last 12 months.
What started out as a regular fishing trip with some friends which involved adventure, fun, and authentic conversations now looks like the Refuge Foundation hosting 1000s of guests each year (50% of which are in full-time vocational ministry) on several of their amazing properties.
From 2018-2021 alone, the 3,000 unique guests attending a Refuge trip have an influential reach of over 16.4mm people.
