Patrick & Kelli Gann
Patrick and Kelli met 10 years ago in Burlington, North Carolina and recently celebrated their 7th wedding anniversary. They have been blessed with both a son and a daughter. They moved to Ft. Worth in 2009. Patrick and Kelli had both been to church growing up, but as they got older, they strayed away. Kelli came to faith at age 10; however, she was emotionally hurt by the church not long after. While they were living in an apartment in north Fort Worth, Alliance Church was doing an outreach ministry, and Kelli decided to give church another try. She influenced Patrick to return also, and he made the decision to re-dedicate his life to Christ and was baptized in March of 2015. Both Patrick and Kelli have a passion for serving others. Patrick currently serves as leader of our Welcome Team and leads a men's group, and Kelli is a leader in our Preschool Ministry and a Ladies' Group.
Seth has lived in the Fort Worth for five years. He is a graduate of Oklahoma Baptist University. Seth believes that God has brought him to Fort Worth to serve with Refuge Place. He trusted Jesus at the age of eight and was baptized shortly after. He is involved in several ministries at Refuge including worship, teaching, and Refuge Group leadership.
