2018 DC Forum


Every year in March, the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions offers members the opportunity to connect with lawmakers and agency decision-makers in Washington, D.C., to: (1) Tell the story of how rescue missions are continuing to make a difference on the streets of our cities; and to (2) Convey our desires and concerns about policies, laws, and bills that can hamper faith-based organizations and the work rescue missions do. The DC Forum is one of the most important—and most appreciated—meetings that AGRM holds.

Your mission should be represented by a member of your leadership team. We suggest the CEO, COO, PR director, or anyone who handles government relations. (And keep in mind that a younger staff member will fit in nicely, as the average age of a Capitol Hill staff member is 31.)


The 2018 DC Forum will be held March 12–14. We start late afternoon on Monday and end Wednesday afternoon. Detailed schedule coming soon.


Several guests will join us; some are already confirmed while others are holding the dates but because of policy or the unpredictable course of business in Washington cannot confirm until the day of the event. We guarantee you will learn much from the nonprofit leaders and VIPs who will be involved.
