Mission Gate is the last chance for many men and women coming out of prison or rehabilitation to create a new healthy and meaningful life.
Our residents work, study, and diligently prepare for a new way of life as a child of God. Every year more than 300 men, women, and families step out from the dark shadow of prison or addiction and into a future filled with hope and opportunity.
Step through the Mission Gate with us.
Mission Gate is both an in-prison ministry and a residential aftercare program for men and women recently released from prisons, jails, or rehabilitation facilities.

“The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.”
Due to COVID-19 we have decided to do home deliveries again this year instead of hosting parties. We are asking for churches, businesses and individuals to help us with providing gifts to bless the socks off these little ones.
Gifts will need to be brought to our office and dropped off by Dec 15, 2021.
We will be needing volunteers to help with sorting, wrapping gifts, and deliveries. We are also looking for volunteers with trucks that would be able to make gift pick ups from churches and delivery to our office. We will be making home deliveries on Dec. 18, 20 and 22.
Please contact Reyna at 636-391-8560 with any questions or concerns.
Remember gift wrapping paper is always welcomed!
“Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.”
-1 Timothy 6:18 (NIV)

Mission Gate is so excited to announce the prisons are opening up. Our staff and volunteers are gearing up to go spread the gospel and give hope to those we serve.
Trish Mathes, co-founder of Mission Gate and our Executive Aftercare Director was blessed recently getting to go into Fulton Community Supervision Center, which is the first of its kind in the state. She got to share the hope, love, joy and restoration that comes from our Lord, letting them know that Mission Gate was here to help them along that journey.
"I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me."

Our staff and volunteers take the Gospel into Missouri prisons and jails.
They share the Gospel, teach strategies for right living, and help inmates break the chains of crime.
What a privilege it is to see ex-prisoners' eyes light up when they see a ray of hope. Change becomes believable. Life becomes manageable. Living life fully becomes a reality.
Our program gives many desperate men and women their last chance to change.
After 9 months of intensive work, these same individuals stand tall and strong at graduation. They're ready to rejoin their families and contribute to their places of work, churches, and communities.

Local churches and communities are an important part of our recovery program.
Churches welcome our men and women as contributing members of the congregation, helping them put their spiritual gifts to work.
Many local employers prefer to hire from Mission Gate because of our residents' positive attitudes, excellent work attendance, and job performance with no worry about drugs or alcohol.
