What is it like working at Hope Gospel Mission?

Bud Drexel

Store Manager, Bargain Center

I work at Hope Gospel because the Lord opened the door for me. The need for the intersection of Faith, ministry, and family are all met here. I enjoy the team I get to work with and the opportunity to minister and help people on a daily basis.

Mike Minner

Addictions Advisor

My favorite part of working at the Mission is all the great people I get to work with, both employees and residents.

Kathy Knoll

Job Coach & Donation Processor,
Bargain Center

Each day I can’t wait to get here at Hope. It’s an amazing place to see God working in people’s lives and I get to be a part of that!

Dan Gintz

Resident Advisor, House of Hope
Men’s Home

I've been blessed, more times than I can remember, by having a front row seat watching God answering prayers, and watching Him at work in the lives of those involved in HGM's programs. Sure, there are highs and lows as the residents strive to get their lives in order. Much the same as each of us have. I learn much more from those that I mentor than they do from me. The quote "But for the grace of God, there go I" rightfully suggests that any of us could be in their shoes in the blink of an eye.
