The Refinery Christian Church was born in 2009 by our founding Pastor, Chad Goucher. The church was originally a campus of Christ's Church of the Valley from 2008-2009. In just a few short years, the church has established a strong community presence and sees an average of 550 attenders each weekend. God has been faithful over the years and continues to use The Refinery to reach those who are far from Jesus Christ.
