Renewing and Refreshing

Recovery is about Renewing and when we get renewed on the inside it’s like a fresh coat of paint for the outside. Deed and Truth helped the men in the recovery program see this truth played out in a real life illustration. We took 32 men from the mission straight into Compton to serve in the Compton Initiative to beautify the Jefferson Elementary School campus.

Battle Training

Ministry on Skid Row is a Spiritual Battle. Those who serve God are front line soldiers. At the Union Rescue Mission we have a top tier team of Chaplains working with the men in the Christian Life Discipleship Program. They are highly qualified and well educated. They are dedicated to the Lord, to the community of believers, and they love the men whom God has entrusted to their care.
