Become a Prayer Warrior!

We provide the names of people who need to be lifted up in prayer as they are preparing to reenter the outside world as well as some who are facing multiple years of incarceration and others who don't expext to set foot outside the walls of a correctional facility ever again. This is a “no contact” position.

Join our Inmate Correspondence Team!

We’ll connect you with people who have asked for somebody to write to them. We’ll give you the guidelines that will help you to be comfortable corresponding with an inmate. No personal contact is necessary unless you decide to call or visit.

Be a Coach!

Be there for friendship, advice, emotional (not financial) support, encouragement, and contacts as your mentee reconnects with his or her family or finds housing elsewhere, gets a job, and rebuilds his or her life after release from incarceration. A coach works in person with the mentee.

Take Coaching to the Next Level!

Go inside the facility to walk along side your mentee as he/she completes a multi-session job preparation training course, developing an understanding of his or her true value as a human being and how to successfully transition into the workplace culture. Then you will continue to provide ecouragement and guidance for a minimum of 90 days following their release.

What does the Bible say about serving others?

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms.

1 Peter 4:10 


For even The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Mark 10:45
