Refuge LA | Kris’ Testimony
Acts 29 - A diverse, global family of church-planting churches

Four years ago, I planted RefugeLA in the heart of my hood, North Hollywood. I am a Los Angeles thoroughbred, but not the Los Angeles portrayed in the tabloids.

To understand my Los Angeles, it would do you better to watch Boys in the Hood. Gangster rap was the soundtrack of my childhood. In my city, even the skateboarders were thugs. Joining a gang is the natural progression of troubled youth in Los Angeles.

So at the age of 14, I got jumped in.
