Current Events!

Pressing Needs!

In 2007, God provided a pick up truck that we desperately needed.  11 years later that truck now has 332,000 miles on it and has been an AWESOME truck!  However, the engine is going quickly and we really need to replace it.  

Please pray with us that God will provide in His time!  If you are interested in helping with this need, please contact us!

2017 in Review

Last year we had 9 men who were able to leave our programs to move on to a productive social life.  Not all of these men "graduated" our program, but all of them were able to find the help and the hope they needed to move forward with their lives!

We praise the Lord for the opportunity to impact lives for the Cause of Christ!

How to Help!

If you or your group are interested in helping the Union Gospel Mission, there are always opportunities.  Work projects, Bible studies, feeding opportunities, or just the opportunity to support the Union Gospel Mission, financially!

Contact us for more information.
