PRISON MINISTRY

We currently partner with both Prison Fellowship International and The Kairos Prison Ministry to share Christ love with the prisoners and their families thereby proclaiming and demonstrating the redemptive love and transforming power of Jesus Christ for all people… the love of God knows no boundary.

What We Do

Angel Tree Ministry:

Every person has a story, for 2.7 million children in the U.S., that story may be filled with the abandonment, loneliness and shame that come from having a mom and/or dad in prison. For many, it may also include following their parents down the same destructive road to incarceration. In partnership with Angel Tree (a program of Prison Fellowship International), we reach out to the children of prisoners and their families with the love of Christ. This unique program gives us an opportunity to share God’s love by helping to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the families of prisoners.

A parent’s imprisonment punishes their child. A little girl or boy simply needs a chance to find the truth and follow Jesus Christ. Through His redemptive love they can be healed and restored—to their parent and to a life of faith. That’s what Angel Tree is all about. Reconciling parents with their children and helping both to find true freedom through Jesus.

Mentoring:

One on one women mentoring with a female inmate for in prison and aftercare at the Maryland Correctional Institution for Women in Jessup, MD. This involves writing the inmate and/or visiting them every month to encourage and mentor them with God’s word.

In Prison Ministry:

Bringing the word in Howard County Detention Center every fourth Sunday of every other Month.

 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!

Romans 10: 14 – 15

Bible Study (Coming Soon):

Men and Women in prison struggle with feelings of despair and hopelessness. As they search for some sense of meaning and purpose for their lives, they wonder if anyone outside the walls of the prison knows or cares about their struggles.

We plan to be going into correctional facilities in partnership with Kairos Prison Ministry (as soon as the door of opportunity opens), to share the good news of Jesus Christ with those behind bars, and offering the hope of true transformation. We strongly believes that through the use of Bible-based teaching, lives will be changed (transformed), hope will be restored, and darkness will be replaced with the light. John 1:5 “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
