Since its founding in 1952, the Mission has served in excess of 4 million meals and provided over 1 million individual shelters to the homeless.
Tulsa's Only Gospel Rescue Mission
John 3:16 Mission is Tulsa's only Gospel Rescue Mission and is a member of the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRM). As such, it emphasizes the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to transform even the most broken lives for the better. To this end, the Mission strives through all its programs to emulate the compassion and love of Jesus so that the lives of homeless and at-risk people can be improved.
The Mission's overnight shelter at 506 N. Cheyenne Ave. provides a safe refuge from the street each night for up to 110 men. We also serve, on average, more than 500 meals each day to Tulsa's homeless and at-risk. Additionally, the Mission operates a Family & Youth Center located in north Tulsa that is dedicated to family and community restoration. The FYC provides material, spiritual and educational support to at-risk, low-income families living in inner-city environments.
