Bruce Deel is the Executive Director of City of Refuge in one of the worst areas in the City of Atlanta. When he was sent to a church in the area his assignment was to shut the doors of the struggling church. What he found were people with a desire for God and out of this desire the amazing ministry of City of Refuge was birthed. To learn more about this ministry click here.
