Mission and Vision

Our Mission

The mission of the Alice Sisson Ministry Center is to equip people to serve and develop relationships with one another, the community, and the world.
What does this mean? The Sisson House is available to all not-for-profit organizations for meetings of up to thirty people (or in simultaneous but separate meetings, up to forty six people). Sisson House can also serve as an overnight “home away from home” for mission teams composed of up to twenty two people.

The City of Wilmington limits the number of OVERNIGHT guests within the walls of Sisson House to 25 (twenty five) people. If your group is larger than that, we will attempt to make nearby (a few hundred feet away) church-owned floor space, with restrooms, available for your excess sleepers.

For meetings, table and seating configurations can be changed to suit the meeting’s size. The residential-style kitchen is available to the group. A sound system, projector, and screen are available on an “as needed” basis.

Our Vision

We desire to be party to deepening relationships with one another and with God by providing a place where a church or other not-for-profit organization can hold various types of meetings. A place where we can educate ourselves about God and the human and/or spiritual needs of others.

Under the care of a responsible organization such as the Wilmington Interfaith Housing Network, we desire to provide temporary refuge for homeless families.

And we desire to be a place where mission teams from other areas can relax, meet, eat, and rest overnight as they prepare for another day of work, or to return to their respective homes.
