JUSTIN SLUITER

WORSHIP PASTOR

justin@refugecadillac.com

Justin is a Northern Michigan native, a foodie, and lover of all things music.  He and his wife, Sarah, and two children, Gemma and Asher, live in Cadillac and make good use of the beautiful lakes and trails in the area.  Justin served as youth director and worship leader for a local church for four years before planting The Refuge Church.  He grew up with hymnals, loves acoustic and full band worship, and desires to see the church worship as one body of believers, pulled closer by their diverse backgrounds and preferences. Justin has a Master of Taxing degree and works part-time as a CPA in addition to his ministry roles at the church.
