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 program for men and women recently released from prisons, jails, or rehabilitation facilities.

COVID-19 has affected many families financially, emotionally, and spiritually this year. We are delighted to be a part of sharing the love, peace and joy that comes from Christ by blessing families of inmates, ex-offenders and those in need. Due to the CDC’s COVID-19 health regulations and guidelines, we are having to approach our Christmas Angel Mission differently and will not be able to gather or have parties. We know this is a change from past years, but we feel very blessed to still be able to reach so many.

"Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people, but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” And he laid his hands on them and went away." - Matthew 19:13-15
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.
