  • Description: We began in 1950 as the Flint Rescue Mission on the banks of the Flint River at Grand Traverse Street. We've been led by John Schaich, Jerry Peaster, Bob Sweeney, Lois St. Clair, and now Dr. Dallas Gatlin...Only five directors in 65 years! We've been supported throughout those years by faithful churches and individuals who recognize the calling of Matthew 25 to minister to the hungry, the thirsty, and the individuals in need of a place to stay. Today we are a campus of learning and restoration in Flint's historic Carriage Town neighborhood. Visitors and residents find a haven of safety and acceptance, learning and responsibility, structure and productivity...A place where Jesus is lifted up as Lord and Savior … A place to find new birth, a sense of purpose for today and hope for tomorrow. Today we have 120 beds (the most in the county) for men women and children in need. Each year we provided 42,000 nights of rest, distributed 142,000 meals, and provided 110,000 pieces of clothing free of charge. The Lafia Learning Center is open to the community and sees 120 new students each month. Great things are happening at CTM, thank you for your support.
