In this brief radio discussion, John Ashmen provides moving information on the great work of this 300-member Gospel Rescue Missions in North America, including the annual meetings of this 100-year-old organization.
From www.agrm.org: “John Ashmen is president and CEO of the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions, North America’s oldest and largest network of independent ministries serving the hungry, homeless, abused, and addicted. Previously, John was vice president of Christian Camp and Conference Association, a league of 1,000 faith-based hospitality and recreation venues in the U.S.”
In 2014 AGRM convenes in St. Louis, MO June 2 – 5. (Seeing this after 2014? Then read about the next annual meeting on at www.agrm.org.)
“For nearly a century, one group has been tracking with the tragic conditions of the desperate and disenfranchised in North America. The Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRM) has been on the sidewalks and in the face of what to many has been a faceless problem. AGRM-member facilities have a reputation for being havens of hope for all who enter.
“Every year, 300 missions serve nearly 50 million meals, provide more than 20 million nights of lodging, bandage the emotional wounds of thousands of abuse victims, and graduate 18,000- plus individuals from addiction recovery programs. The ramification of their work positively influences surrounding communities in countless ways.”
Sunshine Ministries of St. Louis … led by Jim and Carol Clarkson … is mentioned as one widely known local member ministry of AGRM.
On Monday evening, June 2nd, Mission Metro St. Louis Executive Director Robert Loggins is to bring a welcome and greetings to the AGRM convention in behalf of Mission Metro St. Louis and the churches and followers of Jesus Christ in our St. Louis region.
