Missio Dei Is Latin For Mission of God, But What Mission Are You Specifically Engaged In?

  • Sunday Dinner: A full Sunday dinner after our worship service that serves 40-70 people every week. We provide food for the hungry, rest for the weary and friendship for the lonely.
  • Loaves and Fishes: Missio Dei supports Loaves and Fishes, a breakfast held at at the same location on Saturday mornings. Volunteers cook and serve a full hot breakfast of eggs, grits, fruit, homemade biscuits and more to over 150 people. “The most beautiful breakfast in Pinellas County” is held from 7:30 10:30 AM.
  • Laundry Love: A Monthly provision for the working poor and homeless community in St. Petersburg. We provide coins, laundry detergent and dryer sheets to help folks launder their essentials. In addition we provide pizza and drink to refresh them while they wait for their newly cleaned laundry.
  • Mission Assistance and Homeless Ombudsman: We allocate funds every month to assist folks who need assistance getting off the street or staying off the street. Things like emergency utility payments, rent deposits, partial rent payments, food, diapers, clothing etc. GW Rolle is constantly finding and vetting opportunities to spend our funds in ways that can help people move forward well.
  • Advocacy: National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty: GW Rolle sits on the board of directors on behalf of Missio Dei. His role is one of advocacy for the decriminalization of homelessness and fair treatment of all citizens.
  • Reuniting Families: We often find out about folks who have found themselves without a roof over their head who have family who will take them in. We vet those family members to ensure that they are serious and willing. Then we partner with Daystar to fund the purchase of a ticket to get them home.
  • Food Provision: Missio regularly picks up food from available local resources and distributes food to other ministries including Celebrate Outreach, Friday Picnic and low (sliding) income housing among others.
  • House into Home: Missio collects donations of lightly used and good condition clothing, furniture, appliances and other household items to later distribute to anyone in need who is setting up a home and needs assistance. We store these items at an off site storage facility until they are needed.
