The first UMM Breakfast will kickoff on Saturday, September 14 at 8:00 a.m. in the Mike Wilson Fellowship Hall. Our guest speaker will be Dennis Rutledge, Assistant Director for Calvary Rescue Mission. He and his family have volunteered there since 2006 and he served on the Board of Directors from 2007 to 2018 when he became the Assistant Director. The need for an Assistant Director for the mission came along with the new and larger facility which opened in July 2018. The new building more than doubled the number of men who could stay each night, so we needed additional staff to handle the workload. The role of the Assistant Director is primarily facility maintenance, programs and lead the nightly chapel service on certain nights.
Prior to working at Calvary Rescue Mission, Dennis was a member of Collierville Fire Department from 1971 to mid-2004, serving 14 years as Fire Marshal and the last 10 years as Fire Chief. He then served as Fire Chief for Arlington Fire Department from 2004 to 2013. Before coming to Calvary full-time, he was Ambulance Sales Administrator for Emergency Vehicle Specialists, covering Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi.
