Leadership - The City Mission of Cleveland, Ohio

Leadership

There is no better way to lead than by example.

Our trustees and staff are men and women that come from different backgrounds, but share a sense of purpose and a belief in our mission and core values. Each staff and board member “walks the talk,” applying the same principles to their own lives that our guests are learning in their programs.

Staff Leadership

At The City Mission, our leaders have a ministry calling, express diversity, serve God and people as a team, and maintain the highest level of personal integrity. All staff and leadership know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and seek His strength and guidance daily. Only through the grace of God can we in turn love and serve our neighbors as we ought to! We invite you to read more about our leaders and get in touch with them by viewing their bios below.

Board Of Trustees

We’re also grateful to the men and women who serve on our Board of Trustees. Their time, talents and wisdom allow us to maximize our impact in the Cleveland community. Learn more about them below!
