We Believe...

All children are worthy of love and understanding.

Meet Our Chaplains

We make God visible to the children we serve.

Episcopal City Mission

Ministry of Presence Probably the most important aspect of the chaplains' time with the children is what we call “the ministry of presence”. Our chaplains walk the halls; visit the units; play cards, board games, or video games; or watch TV with the youth. The non-anxious presence of our chaplains reassures the teens that their spiritual well-being is being looked after.

Thanks to our friends at the The Church of St. Michael & St. George - especially Tom Guignon, son-in-law Evan Greenberg, son Robert Guignon, and Laurie Roscrow Brown for bringing the kids at St. Louis County's Juvenile Detention Center pizza, Ted Drewes, soda, candy and gifts for their August Birthday Celebration. ECM and partnering congregations are NOT letting Covid restrictions (no visitors) stop us from showing God's love at a time when it is even more important than ever. Our focus is on what we CAN do, versus what we cannot! #hopeandhealing

Recently ECM purchased an electric griddle, deep fryer, 2 burner cooktop and air fryer for a life skills cooking class at the City’s Juvenile Detention Center. Program Coordinator Nikeisha Fortenberry reported, “The kids THOROUGHLY enjoyed the program and ATE GOOD that day!”

Hats off to Clare Kujath and friends at Episcopal Church of the Advent Crestwood for hosting the August birthday celebration at the City's Juvenile Detention Center yesterday afternoon, despite multiple date changes by the Detention Center due to the pandemic's impact. Because of Clare and Advent's perseverance, the children were reminded that they are more than the worst thing they have done; they are beloved.
