Safe Haven Emerges


​Safe Haven Emerges models the paradox of the cross, turning weakness into strength. Under the leadership of Rev. Dr. Ruby Wilson & Associate Pastor of Safe Haven UCC Kris Watson, Safe Haven EMERGES brings five new areas of ministry to Safe Haven UCC  practicing a paradigm shifting model of how we “do church” , and enabling caring souls to minister to the needy outside the walls of the church in Christ’s love and friendship.

​Creating a unique expression of the gospel message, Safe Haven Emerges now engages in meaningful and transformational service outside the walls of the church.      

Mission Statement: We acknowledge the dignity and worth of all God’s people regardless of race, nationality, gender, sexual orientation or ethnicity, and we endeavor to show the love of Jesus Christ with the help of the Holy Spirit by being a haven of help, healing and hope.

Our History: Founded in 1995, by Rev. Dr. Ruby Wilson, Safe Haven Ministries,Inc. became a part of the United Church of Christ denomination in 2002.  Since its inception, Safe Haven has been a haven of help healing and hope for thousands of members, visitors and community members. SHE is the next iteration of a movement of God , taking the love of God outside the walls of the church.
