Become an ambassador to your church

Ambassadors are individuals who have stepped up to connect their church with Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission. Your primary goal: help convey current needs and opportunities to equip your congregation to serve those in greatest need through the grace of Jesus Christ.

We'll give you the resources you need, and send quarterly email updates, so you can energize your faith community.
