Inmates come from various walks of life and have many challenges. Many of these men have not heard the good news of the gospel. A few have fallen away. Our method is to engage participants in Bible study and chapel sessions. The format is informal. We have a weekly meeting at a penitentiary where volunteers develop friendships and bring the gospel to inmates. Meetings may include any way to communicate the gospel – testimony, drama, preaching, prayer, worship, dance, or Bible study.
Our prayer is that through introducing or reintroducing these men to Jesus Christ, his love, and the transformational gospel, they would be affirmed in their identity as God’s sons. Some may discover God’s love for them for the first time. We long for them to be freed from the lies and deceit that have been placed in their lives – that they would be free to live in wholeness, seeking peace and honouring God with their lives.
