In 1986 the Silver City Gospel Mission began out of the basement of Silver City resident John Pershing. He had a vision to serve the homeless and others at, or near the poverty line in Silver City and in 1987 a board was formed and a non-profit 501-C(3) corporation was begun.
Today, the Silver City Gospel Mission is housed in a large facility located at 111 S. Texas Street, located behind Jalisco’s Restaurant.
Some of our services include a soup kitchen which serves hot, well-balanced meals daily, a thriving thrift store, a food pantry and clothing bank, an emergency shelter and a full-time staff.
The Gospel Mission is governed by a board of directors selected from the community-at-large; people who have demonstrated compassion and concern about the needs of the homeless and the indigent poor.
We are a non-denominational Christian charity that believes in the inerrancy of the Bible and that there is one God and that Jesus Christ is his only son.
Our Ultimate Goals
Our ultimate goals are to bring Jesus Christ to a starving world by love demonstrated through action and to give something back to our small town by helping our friends and neighbors.
We serve anyone who comes into our Mission, regardless of their race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, religious beliefs, socio-economic status or sexual orientation.
Occasionally, we may have to ban someone temporarily for certain behaviors like violence, intoxication, bad language, or perversity. Even in extreme cases like these, we will try and give them food and clothing when they need it.
