About Us

About TheRefuge Apostolic Ministries

Refuge Apostolic Ministries was founded in the early part of 2014. It was birthed from a strong prophetic word spoken by Bishop Kibby Otoo with the strong belief that the ministry needed in Charlotte, NC would bring prayer and deliverance in a way that an alarm would sound to awaken the church in the area and restore the foundation of Christ back into the region of Charlotte, NC. Refuge Apostolic Ministries is a part of a family of over 100 Action affiliate churches worldwide.

We serve the Lord under the mantle of His Grace, the Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, who began the Action movement in Accra, Ghana in 1979. Sprouting from deep roots in the Pentecostal-charismatic tradition, Archbishop Duncan-Williams was personally mentored by Archbishop Benson Idahosa of Nigeria. Archbishop Duncan-Williams is known as the “Apostle of Strategic Prayer” and carries a heavy oil for prayer and intercession that has been recognized by many leaders in the body of Christ. His association and ministry with established leaders, such as Oral and Richard Roberts, Dr. Morris Cerullo, Bishop T.D. Jakes, and C. Peter Wagner, has gained him respect and accreditation by various church leaders in the US and internationally. He is also the founder and president of Prayer Summit International. Prayer Summit brings the message and power of prayer via conferences to many U.S. cities and abroad with its emphasis on corporate prayer and breaking down spiritual barriers that hinder revival in specific cities. Anointed in the ministry of prayer, healing and the prophetic, his teachings have touched countless lives over the past 32 years.

Bishop Kibby Otoo & Lady Elsie Otoo Bishop Kwabena Otoo is the Presiding Bishop of Action Chapel Virginia as well as all Action Ministries in the Americas and Caribbean (AMAC).

He was trained in ministry and served for 20 years as a trusted assistant to Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, founder of Christian Action Faith Ministries in Accra, Ghana. As a servant-leader, he traveled the world ministering alongside the Archbishop experiencing the awesome manifestation of God’s power in many meetings and international conferences. As the overseer of AMAC, Bishop Kibby covers Action Chapel Church plantings in Connecticut, The Bahamas, Oklahoma, Kansas, California, Pennsylvania, Dallas and Charlotte North Carolina.
