David & Candise Wade

Monday’s @ 6:30pm North Campus Ann Arbor @ David and Candise’s house

Meet David and Candise! They moved to Ann Arbor in 2017, when David began his graduate studies at the University of Michigan.  They found a new church home in Refuge pretty quickly, thanks to sound biblical teaching and a loving community that felt like family.  David spends most of his days writing, reading, and - this coming fall - teaching, while Candise helps small businesses maximize their online presence.  They look forward to growing deep relationships in Home Group, and can't wait to pursue Jesus together.

Adam & Nikki McCullough

Tuesday’s @ 6:30pm Superior Township (north Ypsilanti) @ Adam and Nikki’s House

Meet Adam and Nikki McCullough.  They have been married for 18 years and have two boys, Casey (15 years) and Carter (12 years).  Nikki is a work from home/home school mom and Adam works in IT at a local software company in Ann Arbor.  They moved to the area a few years ago when God placed it on their heart to be a part of a new church plant, now Refuge Church.  Being the parents of one teenage boy and another one not too far off, walking beside other parents in their parenting journey has been a huge calling that they’ve felt placed on their hearts.  Being able to come together with others as they walk through life in a home group setting has been a huge blessing.  

“We like to think we have created a judge-free zone where no matter what you’re going through in life, you know its safe to share and allow others to help you along the way,” says the McCulloughs. They would love to have you!

Dan & Kathy Scott

Thursdays @ 2:00pm North Ann Arbor

Dan and Kathy Scott both participated in Christian community as undergraduates at the University of Michigan, but didn’t meet until a few years after graduating.  They married in 1980 and have lived in Ann Arbor ever since, raising four children, their lives rich in parenting, scouts and soccer.  They have been deeply involved with church, helping with worship, leadership, and a whole lot of Sunday School.  Dan retired recently from the UofM Health System where he spent the bulk of his 35+ year career in IT management.  He now spends much of his time writing and playing the guitar.  Kathy is still active as a teaching aide and resource specialist for a local Christian school, and regularly cares for their grandson.  They are happy to serve the folks at Refuge, helping to draw closer as a body and to our loving Father.
