Meet Henry Young

Chaplain Henry YoungHenry Young comes to the Mission with over 40 years of selfless Christian service in a range of ministries similar to the Mission but far larger in scope.
After earning a BA in Education from the Pacific Coast Bible College in 1981, Henry and his wife Cheryl founded a street ministry called Set Free Christian Fellowship in Anaheim, California.
By the time he and family moved back to Las Cruces in 1986, his ministry was caring for 200 homeless each night and operated a separate drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.
For the last 14 years, Henry has been a key member of the Sierra Vista Community Church, where has led the Men’s group, adult Sunday School, Bible study, Life Groups, and worship teams. From 2011-2013, Henry also served as interim pastor at Mountain View Christian Church.
Though ordained for decades, he’d rather be called just Henry. Those who know him best say he’s “humble”, “honest to a fault” and “selflessly devoted to spreading the Gospel”.
Today we can also say he is Chaplain of the Gospel Rescue Mission, and we are ever so pleased to welcome Henry and Cheryl to our family.
