Our History

In 1961, Stuart Shelley and others started planning the work and vision of the York Rescue Mission (the precursor to LifePath Christian Ministries). We opened in 1962 with only two buildings — one for sleeping quarters for homeless neighbors, a small restaurant to serve meals, and a chapel, and the other for the Mission’s superintendent and family.

Herman R. Smith, another founder and our first Board President, said, “Our first priority has always been the salvation of men’s souls. Their spiritual needs come first, then their physical needs. We help them, house them, and feed them. We help them find God, and get over the problems they may have so they can reenter the mainstream of life.”

Within the first two years, the Mission became overcrowded and had to expand … and we’ve been expanding ever since — not just in our facilities, but also in the way we help our neighbors in need, now with more services than ever before.
