True change happens at the heart level.
We believe that without the GOOD NEWS of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, true freedom from bondage and sin can never fully be realized. In all our ministries, our interactions with individuals, families, partner organizations and our communities, we engaged in Incarnational Ministry as we walk alongside others through the 9 S’s:
SERVED Incarnational ministry is understanding this is how the invisible God becomes visible through us as we climb into, and not isolate from, the mission around us.
SAVED Receiving the Gospel, a key Word in Acts.
SOBER Addiction recovery program.
STABLE Life’s needle is moving forward.
SCHOOLED Training both Spiritually and Vocationally
SKILLED Gaining what is needed to provide and give back to society.
SECURE Able to sustain housing.
SETTLED Spiritually connected, housing secure, contributing to society.
SERVING Engaging in incarnational ministry.
We partner with Western Montana to serve, rescue, and transform those in need by the grace of Jesus Christ.
Hope Rescue Mission was originally founded in 1999 as Union Gospel Mission of Missoula. What began as a ministry to serve meals to those experiencing homelessness under Higgins St. bridge in Missoula quickly grew to include a day center and later added a men’s recovery program.
More than 20 years later, what is now Hope Rescue Mission, continues to serve those experiencing homelessness, meeting the needs of many in our community through Hope Outreach, 549-HOPE, Hope Thrift Boutique, and The Grace House. While the ministries have grown, our mission still remains the same–help people, restore hope, change lives.
