An Amazing Urban Missionary Team

Our team is a diverse group of people, committed to helping the poor and needy. We represent different cultural backgrounds, ages and talents, which enhances the effectiveness of the The Relief Bus, reaching out to the hurting who also come from various backgrounds. Most of us are urban missionaries who raise part of our own support. Visit our giving page to support a staff member.
