A missionary and shelter, a home and salvation, Union Gospel Mission has been a place of refuge for many since 1888. From cowboys to the homeless and jobless, to drug addicts and drunks, Union Gospel Mission of Fort Worth has unrelentingly helped and provided for people of all different backgrounds and struggles in life to help ease their pain, hunger, and need, while bringing them closer to Christ.

This book takes readers through the 1800s as the Mission cared for and housed prostitutes, cowboys, and drifters, to the 1900s, when it transformed more by the message of Jesus Christ’s saving grace, to now as it has physically expanded to a campus and partners with other organizations and churches to help not only the homeless but all those in need. Fighting debt, eviction, and addiction, the Union Gospel Mission has provided food, shelter, jobs, and spiritual sustenance to thousands of struggling souls for well over a century.

This inspiring journey through time will amaze you in the ways the Union Gospel Mission’s selfless acts have helped lives through Christ.
