Who We Are
Mission Gate is an re-entry aftercare ministry that has a residential program for upwards of 100 Christian ex-offenders. They have 6 residential Guest Homes in south St. Louis MO and a 122 acre residential program for 70 residents at their Fort Good Shepherd Ranch in Cuba MO.
Our vision is to turn a life from crime to Christ through regeneration, rehabilitation and reintegration. This is accomplished by helping "born again" ex-offenders to be all the Lord would have them to be physically, mentally, educationally, vocationally and spiritually. This is accomplished by a disciplined 9 month aftercare program administered by trained and certified counselors and educators.
