Every Time We Feel the Spirit


The Mission offers spiritual development opportunities for program members through Bible studies, church fellowship, mentoring, outreach, prayer meetings, and other scheduled events.


Participation in these events is not a requirement to receive services at the Boston Rescue Mission. Our spiritual development programs are for anyone seeking a stronger connection to their faith.

Bible Study 
A team of staff members, volunteers, and church leaders conduct regularly scheduled Bible studies at the Mission. These studies are designed to meet the needs of guests of the Mission as well as others who work in the downtown Boston area. If you're interested in leading a Bible study at the Mission, please contact us to arrange a meeting.

Our vision is to provide a healing community where lives are transformed through Christ's love, grace, and compassion. To help create such a community, we provide our clients with the opportunity to have a spiritual mentor. A volunteer is paired with a client to meet on a regular basis to encourage spiritual growth and a deeper relationship with God. A brief training will be provided to interested individuals.


The goal of the Outreach Services at the Boston Rescue Mission is to establish relationships with the less fortunate in Boston who are living on the streets. We strive to forge these relationships in a manner that reflects the love, grace, and compassion of Jesus Christ. Most people living on the streets are familiar with the pain of people diverting their eyes as they walk by, rather than stopping to help or even acknowledge them. The Outreach Team actively seeks to speak with each person and offer them an example of the acceptance they can expect at the Boston Rescue Mission. The Outreach Team lets them know that this is a place they can go and start to overcome their struggles - a place of hope, comfort, and care.
