Changing Lives One Life at a Time

Yavapai Territorial Gospel Rescue Mission is changing lives in Yavapai County through the redemptive power of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Gospel Mission serves women and mothers with children, in their efforts to regain balance and move forward in life. We offer Help, Hope and Healing through the Gospel of Jesus Christ and daily discipleship.


Yavapai Territorial Gospel Rescue Mission believes that any life can be changed through the name of Jesus Christ. We believe no one is beyond saving and that through the power of the Holy Spirit, the love of GOD can be experienced by 'even the least of these.'


The Yavapai Territorial Gospel Rescue Mission offers transitional housing to women and their young children. Our ministry partners come alongside the women and give them hope. We offer more than a bed, we give the women tools to allow them to succeed. The women are mentored, are presented the gospel, above all are loved, giving them help, hope, and healing.
