OUR PURPOSE & OUR PAST

“The poor you have with you always”  “In as much as you have done it unto the least of these, you have done it unto me”

Matthew 26:11 & 25:40

The primary purpose of the Mission is to acquaint the homeless and the wanderer with the priceless knowledge of the love and forgiveness of God in and through Jesus Christ. Our secondary purpose is to offer a bath, clean clothes, food and a place of shelter for the night.  The San Antonio Rescue Mission came into being on October 22, 1975.   This was the effort of a small group of Godly men desiring to meet the needs of “The Least of These”.  This concern was initially funded by these men and later by many individuals, churches, business and civic organizations.  We have ministered to over 250,000 men for the past 42 years.

THE PRESENT

“Whoever is kind to the needy honors God”

Proverbs 14:31

Our guests check in at 5:30 PM.   They are given clean clothes and take a shower.   Chapel service starts at 7:00 PM and is conducted by a volunteer pastor or lay leader.   Christian songs are sung and the gospel is given with an invitation for all to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. A hot meal is served after the chapel service in concluded.

We occupy 4 buildings which contain the chapel, office, kitchen, dining room, dormitories, bathrooms, clothing room, laundry room, storage areas and staff quarters.   Our dormitory can accommodate 40 guests.

THE FUTURE

“Where there is no vision, the people perish”

Proverbs 29:18

Our vision is to continue our many Ministries in order to help meet the spiritual and physical needs of our guests, while seeking God’s will to improve existing services and add needed ones.
