Baltimore Rescue Mission

Mission and Background

In 1987, the Lord called Pastor Chuck Buettner to be the new Executive Director of the Baltimore Rescue Mission in Baltimore, Maryland.  Pastor Buettner has been serving the Lord at the Baltimore Rescue Mission for over twenty years now with his wife Janna, who assists him in his administrative responsibilities.

The purpose of the Baltimore Rescue Mission is to proclaim the “unsearchable riches” of the Lord Jesus Christ; seek the salvation of the lost; instruct believers in the Word of God; conduct Gospel and Bible teaching services; feed, clothe, and help the needy; and foster, promote and encourage all phases of general rescue mission work.

The property on Central Avenue is one acre square and three stories tall.  The Karis Home building is four stories tall.  The mission can accommodate nearly 200 men and 35 women and children to sleep overnight and receive supper and breakfast.  It also provides free clothing, a detoxification unit for drug and alcohol abusers, and a medical clinic.
