Step Through the
Mission Gate With Us

Sharing the Gospel through our Christian Prison Ministry

Hands and Heart

In our nine-month prisoner aftercare program, trained and certified counselors and educators help born-again ex-offenders become all the Lord would have them be. This means becoming better people physically, mentally, educationally, vocationally, and spiritually and offering a safe haven for prisoners released into the free world.

Aftercare Program

Our prison ministry owns and operates five guest homes to provide safe housing for ex-inmates who want to change their lives. We operate Crystal's House for women and Hannah's Ranch for women and children. For men, we have three guest homes in St. Louis and Fort Good Shepherd Ranch, which also serves as a church retreat location.

Guest Homes
Hand with Money

Make a difference in the lives of ex-inmates through our many opportunities to give. Your charitable donations and volunteering time are welcome. We also organize annual Christmas Angel Missions to deliver the heart of Christmas to children of ex-offenders and prisoners by giving gifts and throwing Christmas parties.


Make a difference in the life of someone willing to change by supporting our ministry.

About Us

Support those who have turned their lives from crime to Christ with Mission Gate Prison Ministry. Our prison aftercare program for men and women helps those released from prison reintegrate back into society. We offer shelter at our guest homes and provide counseling and classes to help them be better parents and citizens.

Founded on April Fool's Day in 1985, we became fools for the Lord that day, confounding the wise by doing our best to reverse recidivism. Conservatively nine out of ten that complete our program never go back to prison. Our Lord has provided for us through our donors for more than 30 years and many local prison ministries throughout Missouri and southern Illinois have been inspired to succeed because of our example and our Christian evangelism.

We expect that souls will turn from crime to Christ once they have the opportunity to step out of their despair into the glorious hope provided by Jesus through our proven ministry to alcoholics, drug addicts and ex-felons. All it takes is faith and a commitment to step out of the boat with us. So we invite you to walk with us as partners in prayer, volunteer time or financial support for our Good Work. Learn more about our work and what you have to do to "step through the Mission Gate with us!"
