Vagabond Missions Mobile
Who We Are
We are a part of a national 501(c)3 organization called Vagabond Missions. We invite inner-city and urban teens into a relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church, through contact work, discipleship and solidarity with the poor in over 10 cities and now in Mobile, Alabama.
In each of our missions we place four to five missionaries to live, love and serve inner-city kids and neighborhoods. Our model is modeled after the Incarnation. Jesus came to the people and lived among them. A lot of our time is spent meeting kids where they are: in their schools, after school, sports games, parks, basketball courts, etc. We focus on relational ministry ensuring that each teen is known, loved and can experience hope for their lives.

Teens in the inner-city face a cycle of neglect, violence and broken family life. This destructive environment has dire consequences for them and society. Vagabond Missions National intervenes during this time of crisis by inviting them into a relationship with God and others. Through outreach and mentorship, teens experience hope for their lives and a place to call home. When teens tangibly experience Jesus, lives are transformed.
We partner with our local archdiocese and a local church. We also take kids to Mass weekly and coordinate RCIA with the local parish.
Vagabond Mobile's Vision
After working in different ministry positions in Mobile for years, we became convicted of a few things. The first: the Church is alive and well in Mobile, Alabama. The second: it is necessary for the Church to be reaching to every corner of our city. Our vision is to not just serve a community but to be an avenue for an entire community to come together - that we could learn to serve each other in radical ways because that is how Christ loves us. Our deepest desire is not only to have our missionaries serve the youth, but all of Mobile celebrate and love these kids who we know and cherish.
