Mission & History

Our History

Victory Mission began in 1976 when Rev. and Mrs. Everett Cook started serving sandwiches and coffee from the back of their station wagon at the town square in Springfield, Missouri. They chose to show people love as they reached out with the Gospel to homeless men and women. Since then we have continued to reach out with the love of Jesus Christ to people who are hungry, homeless, hurting, and struggling to meet their family's basic needs in Springfield and the Ozarks.

Victory Mission provides a wide array of services to individuals and families in need 365 day a year.  From our food pantry, evening meals, and men's lodging to our P.R.E.P for Life Addiction Recovery and Job Training Program, Victory Mission strives to 'Love our Neighbors' in Springfield, Missouri.

Our Mission

We are a non-denominational, evangelical ministry sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ through emergency and educational services that lead to long-term reconciliation, rehabilitation and re-entry into society. Our job is to share the Gospel. It is God's job to convict, convert and change those with whom we share the Gospel.

Our ministry is primarily sustained by the generous support of individuals, businesses, churches and community organizations. We are a certified member of the national Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRM), and are committed to the highest standards of financial and institutional integrity.
