Serve
The mission of Livingway has been and always will be about sharing the hope and love of Jesus to those who need to hear. To help all who will listen to discover Jesus Christ.
 
At Livingway we believe that every person who has made the powerful decision to follow Jesus Christ becomes a missionary to their world; an ambassador of Christ to those around them.
 
Jesus told his disciples to take the message of redemption to the world. In Acts 1:8 He gives a blueprint for outreach and missional living. Acts 1:8 – But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
 
Four areas that we are Bionically called to impact: 
* Our Jerusalem – the city in which we live
* Our Judea – those in the larger areas around us
* Our Samaria – those who are different than us or who we would not usually reach out to
* The ends of the earth – the world
 
We break Our outreach into 5 sub-categories:
  *  Events – Church wide special events
  *  Evangelism – Evangelistic centered outreach
  *  Service – Showing love in a practical way and serving the community
  *  Awareness – Getting to know the community and introducing ourself
  *  Mission – Mission trips

It’s always been about changing lives. The Union Gospel Mission has been reaching out to the last, least, lost and lonely of Dallas for 60 years. Folks come to the mission, “tore up, busted and disgusted,” to quote one of our clients. What they find is worth more than gold. UGM offers all a chance to put their lives back together, anchored by a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Since 1949 the Union Gospel Mission has been reaching out to the homeless in Dallas. We provide food, shelter, clothing and faith to 500+ men, women and children nightly. For many the mission is a place to enter, to seek shelter from the storm. For many others it’s a place to stay, to live, to become a healthy member of society with a deep and abiding faith in Jesus Christ.
