Following Jesus… Serving The Homeless

“I have traveled to many countries teaching the Word of God and assisting missionaries in the field. A former chapel speaker at the Mobile Rescue Mission suggested I begin teaching there several years ago, and I have been there ever since. It is a great and ongoing blessing.”

— Herb

Volunteers are a vital part of the ministry at Mobile Rescue Mission. The Mission believes that volunteers are called by God, and are “created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)


Mobile Rescue Mission has opportunities for one-time volunteers as well as more committed volunteers called our Team 25 Volunteers. Team 25 Volunteers have specific duties which allows them opportunities to serve the Lord alongside the Mission’s staff.

The first step in becoming a Team 25 Volunteer is to sign up for a “Waterfront Experience”, an in-depth volunteer orientation designed to bring together committed volunteers with the ministry of helping the homeless and addicted.

For more information on how to get involved, as an one-time volunteer or as a Team 25 Volunteer, please contact the Mission’s Volunteer Coordinator at 888-853-8655. To register for the upcoming orientation or to schedule an orientation, please e-mail or call 888-853-8655.
