 A Message from our Executive Director

Welcome to the official web site of the Niagara Gospel Mission
Since 2007 the Niagara Gospel Mission has been bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to the people most often overlooked by society. Thousands of volunteers and donors have given their time, money, clothing, food and prayer to help us get the message out, that God has a tremendous plan for every person in our community regardless of what brought them to our doors.
Thank you so much for visiting our web site. We hope you will take time to find out how God has changed the lives of so many who have come to us for help. There is no way we could impact these lives without the generosity of people like you. We truly believe that the Niagara Gospel Mission is an extension of the church and a partner of the community in restoring hope and dignity to people God loves very much.
In Christ,
Tom McLaughlin
