We believe homelessness is a problem of broken relationship… broken relationship to God, society, and self. We address these broken relationships by carefully walking with each individual to overcome their relationship challenges. Every person has a unique story and at Kings Gospel Mission we endeavor to know the people we serve and love them through their specific circumstance.
Brokenness to God: We introduce people to the Lord, Jesus Christ, and teach about His saving grace.
Brokenness to society: We teach livelihood: Skills, hygiene, and habits which encourage success in a productive and fulfilling context.
Brokenness to self: We teach that man is broken spiritually before God because of sin and because of our sin, chemical and physical dependencies and/or mental barriers are sometimes manifested in our lives. We work with each individual to help him realize his value in Christ, that he can be set free through the power of the Gospel and the transforming work of the Holy Spirit, and that brokenness of self can be fully restored to a transformed life in Christ.
How we make it happen:
A Street Presence and Overnight Shelter: We begin by getting to know these men by providing an alternative to the streets– an overnight men’s shelter where they can rest, fellowship in a healthy environment, eat a meal, do their laundry, take a shower and sleep in peace.
A Life Transformation Program: When men are ready, they can join our New Song Academy. This is an intensive exploration into the Gospel of Jesus Christ, livelihood skills, and vocational preparedness. The individual must be ready and willing for this step for it requires commitment and dedication.
An Independent Site and Community: After graduating the New Song Academy, we provide an independent living facility with after-care, social fellowship, and ongoing mentoring from KGM staff. Research shows that people are successful when they have support networks to reach out to during tough times. We will continue to be there for our graduates.
Please consider partnering with us! Together we can transform lives and reduce homelessness in Kings County!
