BDI Welcomes Kalamazoo Gospel Mission

BDI Welcomes Kalamazoo Gospel Mission

We are honored to welcome Kalamazoo Gospel Mission to our BDI family of clients!

Located in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the Mission offers emergency shelter, daily meals and vital clothing for individuals and families in need, along with education services and housing assistance. Their residential Regeneration program offers long-lasting transformation through Christian classes, counseling, job training and career development to help guests build brighter futures. The ministry’s recent merge with the Kalamazoo Deacons Conference has expanded their outreach to include a community food pantry and other compassionate resources.

For more than 86 years, Kalamazoo Gospel Mission has focused on a ministry of restoration and transformation. The testimonials of their guests speak volumes:

  • “A couple of weeks after I got here, I could feel my life beginning to change…”
  • “I have hope for the future and I’m grateful for everything the Mission has given me…”
  • “At the Mission, I learned I can do anything, if I stay on the path God has put me on.”

As the Mission’s fundraising partner, BDI will focus on helping them continue to expand their outreach through multiple channels, including strategic fundraising planning and execution, direct response mail and digital, as well as production and data services.

BDI Account Strategist Matthew Rayburn says, “I am very excited to begin working with Kalamazoo Gospel Mission and to assist them in the great work they do in Southwest Michigan. It is a privilege to work with them on their fundraising efforts and to help them maximize their outreach to the community. Pastor Brown, Lynn and Tammy are a real joy to work with and I look forward to a fruitful partnership helping them extend their ministry’s vision to see the lives of those who are homeless and in need transformed by the truth of the Gospel.”

Welcome to the BDI family, Kalamazoo Gospel Mission! We’re so excited to be partners in the incredible outreach you have that’s changing so many hurting lives in your city.
