St. Louis Ministry Center

Located in the gateway to the Midwest, Send Relief’s ministry center in St. Louis is dedicated to mobilizing individuals and churches to meet tangible needs in the city through training opportunities and mission trips.



In partnership with the St. Louis Metro Association, some of the crucial missional work being done at the center includes helping urban communities struggling with poverty and education disparity. Volunteers can expect to be involved in prayer walking, meeting physical and spiritual needs of the refugee community, distributing food to those in need and sharing the gospel with the next generation of leaders.
