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 (CCV) from 2008-2009, however, in just a few short years, the church established a strong community presence which now sees over 600 attendees each weekend.
