Prison Ministries


Our vision is that God’s kingdom will be manifested as the redemptive grace and peace of Jesus Christ are experienced by those impacted by a crime.


Our mission is to exhort, equip, and assist the Church in its ministry to prisoners, ex-prisoners, victims, and their families and to promote biblical standards of justice in the criminal justice system.

Ministry Goals:

  • Proclaiming the gospel
  • Making Disciples Doing
  • Justice Loving
  • Mercy
  • Speaking Truth in Love

How To Get Involved:

If you would like to be our partner in spreading the good news of the gospel to those behind bars, you can help in any or all of the ways listed below:


Bring the prison ministry to the lord in prayer. Pray for those who minister within the prison as well as the inmates that they would be open to the Gospel.


We continually need men and women who are willing to give 2 to 3 hours a week sharing the Gospel in jail or in homes, and then disciple those that accept the Lord. We will train you and see that you are completely prepared before you begin working in the ministry.
