About Us

But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. 1 John 3:17-18

Established in 1938, The Gospel Mission is a non-profit, non-denominational Christian ministry dedicated to serving the needs of the homeless in Siouxland.

We first address the basic needs of those who come into our care by providing a safe place to stay in one of our shelters, hot meals from our kitchen, groceries from our food pantry and clothing and household items from our Thrift Stores.

For those who seek a path to getting back on their feet and escaping the cycle of homelessness, we also offer spiritual guidance, life skills, parenting training, jobs, counseling and so much more.

Here at the Mission, we seek to show the love of Christ to everyone who comes through our door. We meet people where they are in their journey, whether they stay with us for one night or months on end.
