Mission at the Mission

is ... 

Mission at the Mission?   

Mission at the Mission exists to mobilize the local church through our Urban Retreat Center in the heart of the Fresno Rescue Mission to impact our culture and serve outside the four walls of the local church.

The youth from Central Community Church created this video about their experience in the 2015 Urban Plunge, a ministry opportunity provided by the Fresno Rescue Mission's "Mission at the Mission" Urban Retreat Center.  What an amazing group!  What an impact they made on our community and the people we serve!

We deploy the church! 

Mission at the Mission, a ministry of the Fresno Rescue Mission, helps churches do more than equip believers.  We help churches deploy people where they are needed most… to the local front-line, where a whole host of ministries are in need of their support.  SEE JULY 2014 STORY (When World Changers  came to Mission at the Mission  to be part of an Urban Plunge in our community)

We know that when soldiers return from the front-line, they

  • see the world differently
  • understand needs and situations with greater clarity
  • have the ability to teach others more effectively 


How does Mission at the Mission ultimately serve our community?

We provide the front-line ministries with fresh soldiers; those strengthened in purpose, repositioned by the desire God has placed in them, regrouped in skill-filled teams, and redeployed to ministries matching their skillsets. We help the church respond effectively to the needs in our community!  At the same time, the church will become vibrant in the eyes of the community.  Its members will return from the front-line experiences as veterans; stronger, smarter, and capable of moving the church to its full potential.

The community will learn to think of the church as the source where real change is found!

Join us!  Find your calling! 
Help the hurting in your own community.


Mission at the Mission  
Equipping and deploying God’s people to Fresno’s front-line ministries;
