Kelowna Gospel Mission

In 1977, a few students from Okanagan Bible School visited Kelowna City Park weekly, offering coffee and conversation to park visitors. As winter approached there was an apparent need to shield vulnerable community members from the cold. The students opened a drop-in centre that grew to be Kelowna’s Gospel Mission Society in 1978. By 1985, the Mission had a soup kitchen, a new emergency shelter, and the thrift store. With this foundation, they are able to advance in their mission to lead our community from homelessness into wholeness. Call (250) 763-3737 for further information on beoming involved.
