Engedi Refuge - Intercession Night

Who are we serving?

Engedi Refuge provides a restorative program for women who have survived sexual exploitation, prostitution and trafficking. We serve them with dignity and compassion. We demonstrate the love of Christ as we teach them practical ways to overcome challenges and embrace healthy living.

Who is helping connect us to their needs?


Engedi Refuge Ministries is a faith-based, holistic program where women can recover from the devastating effects of sexual exploitation. Engedi exists to provide restoration, hope, and support to those struggling to overcome such things as poverty, addiction, depression, and complex trauma often  association with a life of prostitution and sex trafficking. They do this through safe housing, trauma-informed classes, and a supportive atmosphere of empowerment and dignity.  Engedi’s program is designed to care for each resident physically, spiritually, emotionally, and socially as they work toward sustainable independence and sobriety. Engedi is among the most comprehensive and successful recovery programs of its kind in the United States.

How are we serving?

We need your group to PRAY! Take the time you would normally meet for small group or Bible study and pray specifically for the Engedi residents. We can provide specific needs without revealing their names (keeping their identities confidential is extremely important in this ministry). As you pray, ask God to speak to you words of encouragement or scriptures that you can write down in a card and give to our residents. Perhaps the team could give a potted flower arrangement or something along with the card full of prayers, encouragements and scriptures which we can present to them at the safe-house. You can pray in your home or come to the Engedi Learning center and do a prayer walk around the property. Sometimes you get a greater sense of what God is doing when you’re here.

Who do you contact?

Contact Johanna Holliday, Administrative Assistant at Engedi.johanna@gmail.com or (360) 922- 7600 to get the list of prayer requests and/or to set up a time to be come out to pray and drop off your encouragement, in whatever form it takes.

At CTK, we value authenticity, simplicity, empowerment, relationship, and caring about the community we live in. One key way we serve is by empowering small groups to make a difference through our local partners who address important issues for those in the hardest life circumstances. The opportunity below is a chance to tangibly demonstrate God's care, compassion, and love for those around us. As your church, we hope this makes it easy for you to put the Great Commandment to love your neighbor as yourself into action
