For more than 50 years, in the grace and power of Jesus Christ, thousands of  people in Sonoma County have poured themselves out for the hungry and afflicted through the ministry of the Redwood Gospel Mission.  And because of their efforts, a light has shown in the darkness. It is a light which is much more than the landmark, neon “Jesus Saves” sign that has lighted up the corner or 6th and Wilson for the last 5 decades.  It is a light brought about by the transformed lives which have resulted from the ministries of all those who have poured themselves out.  Beginning as a 14 bed shelter in 1963, the Mission now mobilizes the community to minister to the needy through a variety of homeless services, recovery programs, vocational training, jail ministries, outreach events, and thrift stores.  The Mission has a visionary board of directors, and a team of dedicated staff members committed to equipping, encouraging and supporting the people of our community to engage in effective ministry with the needy.

NEW LIFE PROGRAM

A program for men who want to break the addictive patterns that led them to homelessness and brokenness. There are 3 phases, each one adds onto the other with memorization of scripture, work chores, and accountability with a mentor and attending classes. The men are allowed to have a semi-permanent room for the duration.  Each phase is 3 month, 6 months, etc. in duration. The third phase the men are required to secure a job.
