Connecting and transforming lives helps . . .
to reduce recidivism or repeat offences
Action steps to ask if you want to get involved?
- Does your church have a Jail/Prison Ministry already?
- Ask your pastor if he/she is aware of nearby churches have ministries and combine forces
- Find out where your closet jail/prison is and find out if there is a Chaplain that needs some volunteer help
- Find out if there is an established Ministry already involved in ministry on the ‘inside’ such as Good News or Kairos
- Find out if there are ‘outside’ ministry opportunities such as Healing Hand, Celebrate Recovery, Jim Russo Prison Ministry, Drug/Rehab Programs, etc.
