Mission Statement:

Our ministry believes that no one is too far gone. We serve the incarcerated community to make a difference in our neighborhoods, cities, states, nation, and the world. We know that without intervention, sadly, too many will reoffend and end up back in the system.IF they return to jail or prison, we continue to see brokenness infiltrating individuals and families creating more hurt and pain in people, communities, and our society as a whole. the only way to change this is to go and give the hope that can change, heal, and restore lives: Jesus!

Acts 20:24 "But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus - the work of telling others the good news about the wonderful grace of God!"

We are in prisons and jails throughout the calendar year. We would love for you to join us on one of our prison trips.

 
 

The Numbers:

With 1 in 36 adults in the United States under some form of correctional supervision, we realize there is a lot of work to do. In 2014, there were 6,851,000 adults in correctional systems. Of that number, state prisoners age 55 or older increased 400%, and in 2013, 31% of state prisoners age 65 or older were serving life or death sentences. According to Bureau of Justice Statistics,  inmates age 55 or older had a higher percentage of violent offenders than all other age groups. We must do something!

 

Together, we can make a difference. With over 4.7 million adults under probation or parole in 2014, and the incarceration of our youth happening at the highest rate ever, we have a lot to do. According to CBS News in May of 2014, incarceration costs $80 billion dollars a year to taxpayers. That is $260 per year per taxpayer going straight to pay for incarceration. We know that we can change those numbers. We believe in transformation that will change the incarcerated for life. By supporting us, you are partnering to make a difference.
