JOHN 3:16

Location

The Mission’s overnight men’s shelter is located at 506 N. Cheyenne Ave. This is just off of North Denver Ave. in downtown Tulsa. The Mission is across the street from the David L. Moss Correctional Facility (Tulsa Jail) and immediately adjacent to the IDL overpass.

Your safety is important to us.

  • Arrive at the shelter before 5:45pm (if you have a job and can’t make it in time, call us for a reservation).
  • Bring a photo ID.
  • Bring a TB card.
    • You only need this if you plan to stay for more than a week.
    • If you don’t have one, we can help you get it.
  • You must be sober. We want everyone in our shelter to be safe, so disruptive or intoxicated guests will not be allowed to stay until they are sober and under control.
  • Please do not bring the following items to the shelter:
    • Pets
    • Weapons
    • Alcohol
    • Non-prescribed drugs

 
Note: We have lockers for you to store your personal belongings overnight.

Are you a woman in need of a place to stay?

John 3:16 Mission does not have an emergency shelter for women. Women are most welcome to have dinner at our shelter, but women who need a place to sleep for the night should call 211 for a complete list of social services available to you.

You are also welcome at our women’s day program, called Renew, for women on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9 am to 2 pm. We’ll pick you up and bring you to our Hardesty Renew campus for the day. 

Our Process:

Welcome! When you arrive, you’ll be assigned a bed according to an evening lottery. You’ll attend a chapel first and then have an evening meal, and you’ll have the chance to shower before bed. Lights out is 8 p.m. You’ll have breakfast in the morning and will need to depart by 6 a.m. so we can begin preparations for the next evening.

If you have a job and cannot make it in time for evening check in, you are welcome to call the Mission to reserve a bed. (You may be required to show proof of employment.)
