Prison Ministry Volunteers are a small group of volunteers who were called to share the good news with those incarcerated. Called to help them find Jesus Christ, their Lord and Savior. Help them to know that they too can be forgiven and can live fulfilling and honoring lives serving others even if they will never leave their current situation. We share hope through the Gospels and The Word of Jesus Christ. Jesus and that “God gave His only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”
We believe that an understanding and belief of who you are in Jesus Christ will lead to right thinking, right doing, right acts, and right purpose to serve others.
