Spiritual Life

At the Rescue Mission, our doors are always open. Wherever you are in your faith journey, the Rescue Mission Spiritual Life team is here to serve your needs. We offer worship and fellowship opportunities, outings and events, or a listening ear to all.

Meet the Team

Reverend Yulon Jones is our Chief Spiritual Life Officer. Having served at the Rescue Mission for over a decade, Rev. Jones understands the trauma and needs of those among us experiencing hunger and homelessness. His compassionate nature allows him to connect with people from all walks of life.

In May 2023, Reverend Tom Zahradnik joined the Rescue Mission Spiritual Life team as Associate Chaplain. Before coming to the Rescue Mission, Tom worked as a pastor, police chaplain, community chaplain and government chaplain. He is an ordained minister and endorsed chaplain with the Assemblies of God.

We want to connect with you!

Would you like one of our chaplains to visit your church and discuss the Rescue Mission, our Spiritual Life Program, and how we put love into action? 
Would you like one of our chaplains to share an encouraging message of scripture?
