Street Ministry Story

 
   Cory has been coming to the Overcomers meetings at Union Gospel Mission for several years now.  He started coming because he had been struggling with an addiction to cocaine and other drugs for years.  He has been struggling with low self-esteem for most of his life and felt that drugs and alcohol as well as going from one girl to the next was the best way to combat that struggle.  But he soon found that he had an even bigger problem when he became addicted, especially to the drugs.  His life soon fell apart and he became a very angry young man. 

    One day he came to Union Gospel Mission for chapel and a meal, where heard the gospel message.  By God’s grace the Holy Spirit allowed him to finally understand the gospel message with his heart and not just his mind.  He started going to church and more chapel services at UGM.  He heard about the Overcomers meetings for those who want to overcome their addictions through the power of the gospel.   Soon thereafter, he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior and turned his back on the drugs and wild lifestyle.  Today, Cory still comes to the Overcomers meetings at UGM and he is still focused on living for Christ.  May the Lord continue to give Cory peace along with many others who come to UGM for the glory of Christ!

Incoming Executive Director - Frank Ulrich's Biography


I am very thankful and excited that God has provided me the opportunity to serve as the next Executive Director of Union Gospel Mission. 

I was blessed to have grown up in a strong Christian family that attended Rowandale Baptist Church, which I still attend with my wife and two teenage sons, Joel and Shane.  My faith in God has always been the central part of my life growing up, and still is now as I lead my own family.  Having been so blessed in my own childhood, I have always had a strong desire to help the less fortunate and to share my faith with others.  Many people in our communities have grown up with no father figure or if a Dad was around, the relationship with their children was not healthy and not conducive to a good upbringing and a sound foundation, upon which to build.  I want to be part of an organization that helps those who have not had the same opportunity as I have had, with Christ as a starting point in all of our Ministries and everything that we do.

I graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Commerce (Hons.) Degree, majoring in Marketing and Business Administration.  I have worked in Sales, Customer Service and Human Resources. 

James 1:27:”Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

New Executive Director Announcement

Last fall the Board accepted the resignation/retirement of Greg Stetski (effective April 30th) who has faithfully served the Mission for over 30 years, the last 13 as Executive Director.  We asked our many supporting churches and individuals to join us in prayer, seeking the Lord as to whom He wanted in leadership at Union Gospel Mission.  A search committee was formed and several individuals were considered for the position.

The Board of Directors of the Union Gospel Mission is pleased to announce the Missionary Appointment of Frank Ulrich as our incoming Executive Director.  We believe God has called him into this ministry and has guided the Board to recognize this.  He will assume full responsibilities on May 1, 2017.

Frank has served several years in non-profit charitable organizations in the areas of human resources and administration.  He has a deep desire to serve others and to share the Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ.  He is an active member of Rowandale Baptist Church in Winnipeg where he has ministered in many capacities, such as chairing the International Missions Committee, teaching Sunday School and serving as a youth leader.  He has been overseas in mission outreach.

We encourage you to help us welcome Frank to the ministry at Union Gospel Mission and trust that we can count on your continued support in prayer, finances and volunteer personnel.  We depend on the many churches like yours to reach out together in God’s love to the poor and needy. To God be the glory!  

In Christ,

 

 

Lindell Page, Chairman

Board of Directors

Enrollment - Christian School

The enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year is almost complete!!  Both classes at our Pritchard location are full once again.  Praise the Lord!

Please join with us in prayer for the new students and families entering the sponsorship program.  This can be a difficult time for both mom and child.  For some, it’s the first time they have been separated for any length of time.  I remember a couple of years ago when a mom had such a difficult time not being with her child, she must have called me 3 times the first day to make sure her child was adapting well to the new environment.  However, sadly, there is the other side as well, where mom can’t wait to have the child leave for the entire day. 

I thank all of our donors and pray warriors who make this ministry a reality.  Without the prayers and financial support, the Adopt-A-Student program does not exist.  For $50 a month or $600 a year, you too can be part of this incredible ministry, and bless a child for eternity!!
