Since opening its door in the Spring of 2012, Threshold Ministry has served more than 600 men, women, and children. Threshold volunteers welcome those who come to Threshold into a safe place.

A key task of Threshold volunteers is to help clients navigate the maze of resources that exist for the economically disadvantaged.
Visitors are also invited into the life of Decatur Presbyterian Church, both worship and fellowship activities.
The ultimate goal of Threshold is to create – through compassionate outreach – a community of faith that fully reflects the vision expressed in Scripture, where everyone experiences what it means to be a child of God – belonging, engaged, and being transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit.
We welcome anyone in need to come meet with us. Policies for service vary, and some agencies have additional requirements. We can be reached at 404 378-1777.
