Rambeau, pastor and founder of House of Refuge, 506 Corn Avenue, Albany, said when people stop by the church she planted almost 20 years ago, they are taught how to apply the scriptures to their lives.

Rambeau, who taught French at Westover High School before retiring two times from the Dougherty County School system, has developed strong ministries in mission, Sunday school and worship.
