History and Mission of Northern Inn Ministries
In 2010, we began a simple monthly ministry to homeless individuals and families in the Appleton area. At first we hosted monthly dinners in the parking lot of the Northern Inn Motel. Through sharing a meal, we had the opportunity to build relationships and become aware of the needs of the residents there. Our presence expanded when we rented and renovated a room at the Northern Inn. With an on-site location, we could host not just meals but Bible studies, worship services and also provide space from which other community agencies could provide help to residents.
In 2012, we formed a non profit organization, Northern Inn Ministries. The goals of Northern Inn Ministries are reflected in its mission statement:
