Mission of the Month: Prison Fellowship Ministries (at Shakopee Women’s prison) and Bethany Prison Ministry.
MARCH MISSION OF THE MONTH: Prison Fellowship Ministries (at Shakopee Women’s prison) and Bethany Prison Ministry.
Prison Fellowship Ministries - We’ve spent decades ministering to inmates and their families. We implement proven, research-backed programs that address crime at its root – the human heart. While education, poverty alleviation, and social justice are all important aspects of the Church’s ministry to the incarcerated and their families, we believe that successful outreach to the least and lost must start with the power of the Gospel to transform lives from the inside out. Read our Statement of Faith | Statement of Values online at www.prisonfellowship.org.
Resources for Prison Ministry - Ministering to the incarcerated and their families can sometimes feel like visiting a foreign culture. Whether you are new to prison ministry, or you’re a veteran looking for new perspectives, explore our resources to help you understand the complexities of incarceration – and how it intersects with justice, family relationships, employment, justice, and more.
Bethany Prison Ministry provides letters and literature to prisoners. New prisoners contact them at a “surprising pace and they give us increasing confidence that we are on the right track and God wants us to not only maintain the rate at which we have been going, but to increase it. If you’d like to participate in encouraging those in prison, contact LeRoy Dugan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
