Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County CEO named Top Nonprofit Executive

Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County’s CEO Don Shisler was recently named Top Nonprofit Executive by the Fort Worth Business Press. 14 individuals and businesses were recognized at an event on August 29 at the Fort Worth Club.

The FWBP reported that Shisler shared these words with the event attendees: ““I’m a minister. I’m serving the Lord Jesus Christ and I enjoy every day that I serve at Union Gospel Mission. But it’s a team effort there. It’s the board of directors, it’s my staff, it’s the volunteers and it’s the community. We all come together there at Union Gospel Mission at some capacity. It may be sending in a donation, it may be volunteering there.”

Union Gospel Mission shared on its Facebook page along with the above photo that it was “so proud” Shisler was named Top Nonprofit Executive.
