We are currently looking to add full and part time employees to our team. If you are interested helping the Mission end homelessness one person at a time, fill out the form below and we will schedule a time to meet.
OVERVIEW: Every Mission employee plays a vital role in carrying out the Mission’s mission, vision, values, and purpose.
Mission Statement: The Medford Gospel Mission exists as a Christ-centered ministry to provide relief, restoration, and transformation for our community.
Vision: To build relationships and to restore people to wholeness in our community.
We value relationships. We believe in having a relational ministry. People need the love of Jesus expressed through His representatives—His ambassadors. We seek to love those the world has left behind.
o We value empowerment. We desire to restore people through promoting responsibility. We believe in empowering people to make positive changes in their lives and being accountable for their actions.
o We value transformation. We aspire to restoring people’s relationship to God, self, others, and their community.
Purpose Statement: Our purpose is to bring glory to the Lord Jesus Christ in all that we do. The Word of God clearly instructs us how to do this in Matthew 22:37-40 “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” Therefore, we show our love for God and our neighbors (the homeless and housed) in two distinct ways making our purpose twofold. The primary purpose of the Mission is to reach people in our community with the saving message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as understood in the Protestant/Evangelical traditions through the preaching and teaching of the Word of God.
Our secondary purpose is to serve our neighbors in a caring way, with the abundance of gifts that the Lord has blessed us; enabling us to feed, clothe and shelter people in need. It is our desire to not simply provide a hand out but to provide a hand up, giving individuals the ability to make real changes in their lives. Therefore, we provide programs that teach individuals to live as valuable members of our community and their chosen church.
