House on the Rock was founded in December 1994 by Pastor Paul A. Adefarasin in Lagos, Nigeria. The ministry was established to be a vanguard 21st century Church with a vision of empowering believers for the fulfillment of their God-ordained destinies. Since its’ inception the Church has grown far beyond the borders of Lagos, with over 40 daughter Churches and missions in Nigeria and across the globe.
The Refuge is a daughter Church of House on the Rock with headquarters in Lagos. It was birthed in September 1999. The Refuge is a springboard for strategic ministry in the northern region of Nigeria and beyond.
The Refuge is a place where everybody can be somebody! It is truly a refuge from the harsh world we live in; a place where the word of God is preached without hypocrisy or guile, but in honesty, faith and power.
Pastor Paul Adefarasin
