Meet the Team

The team at Kelowna’s Gospel mission that carry out these programs are a diverse group of individuals who consider this work to be more than an occupation- it’s a calling.

Each staff member and volunteer have a story that led them to do this difficult yet rewarding work. Our team members are resilient, compassionate and have extraordinary skills and emotional intelligence.

We are devoted to restoring broken relationships through Biblical, ethical, and professional accountability.

We are fortified by our faith and resolute in our action. To meet homelessness head-on, we adapt our practices, learn new approaches and bring in new resources.

We are confident and grounded in the daily reality that our work is difficult but necessary.
