I've been involved with the City Gospel Mission since the mid 1980's. A lot has transpired since then. I never cease to marvel at what the Lord has done through this ministry to change the lives of our community's disadvantaged. Children are mentored through Whiz Kids Tutoring and other programs that give them an alternative to the bleak future they found themselves in. They even have a ballet program theat establishes self worth and Godly examples for young women to aspire to. Adult men have an Exodus program that gives temporary housing with a purpose. Study programs and job skills programs help prepare them for the day they graduate and re-enter the "outside world". God's principles are taught that make a fundamental transformation in who they are and what motivates them. They are given the opportunity to become new men who are ready to face the challenges that society presents and win in the process. The women's program is similar; but it's tailored to the unique needs and challenges that women face. The staff that serve these women, men and children are truly remarkable. Their selfless committment to the task God has called them to is inspiring. They have literally played a pivital role in pulling desperate people back from the precipace. It's been an honor to be associated with these heros. City Gospel Mission has made a significant difference in our community by helping it's members who need it most.
