  Prison Ministry- Let’s make a difference!

  Mission Statement

We are a faith-based, spiritually-led Prison Ministry that seeks to restore hope, human dignity, and a personal relationship with Christ.

 

 

 

 

 

Vision Statement

Let’s break down the barriers that hold people hostage inside with the help of those of us outside through spiritual guidance and personal experience. Striving for re-connection with society and family as well as giving them an opportunity for a full life and a personal recognition of their intrinsic value.

 

Our Goals

To aid people returning to society to become more productive citizens and to give them the tools needed to change their lives. To give them the opportunities to find jobs, work with budgets, obtain housing, share health care options and tools for better parenting. To help them change the course of their lives so they can re-enter society successfully.

 

  Areas we need volunteers:

 Spiritual guidance, immigration barriers, mentoring, training through teaching and facilitation groups.
