Meet Ted Guy – Phoenix Rescue Mission’s New Board Chair

A new heart to help lead the Mission

Q: How long have you lived in the Valley?
A: I’m a native, born in Chandler. I’ve lived in various parts of the US, attended NAU for college, and moved to Phoenix after school. That was 1978 and I’ve been here ever since!

Q: What led you to get involved with Phoenix Rescue Mission?
A: As a Christian, I believe we are called to serve others. I started with the Mission as a volunteer on the Hope Coach doing Street Outreach and grew to love the ways the Mission is serving our community.

Q: What is something that excites you about taking the role of Board Chair?
A: I am very excited about developing community within our Board as we seek to serve the greater good of the disenfranchised in Maricopa County. In my opinion, we are blessed with an outstanding Board. I am privileged to serve as Chairman.

Q: How would you like to see Phoenix Rescue Mission grow over the next couple of years?
A: I would like to see the Mission serve more where most needed. We are in the process of developing a strategic plan with this in mind and are in the process of lifting the plan up to the Lord – to charge ahead in care and service.

Q: What message do you have for those in our community reading this newsletter?
A: The Mission is more than staff and clients and homeless “shelters.” We have numerous opportunities where anyone in the community can serve and make a difference. I encourage all our friends to look up volunteer opportunities on the website and learn how they can serve.
