Since the beginning, the Lord has brought together a wonderful group of people to serve Him in this mission through administration, management, counseling and other essential roles. Many of our staff members actually joined our team after experiencing a changed life through the ministry of the Durham Rescue Mission.

We are thankful for all the ways we have been blessed by our staff — we truly would not be where we are today without the dedication and hard work of each of them.
