Prison Ministry


The vision of the prison ministry is to “Set the Captives Free.” We do this by providing spiritual, social, and character development through worship, family and relationship building, life skills, and career development.

Mission of Prison Outreach

  1. To restore the incarcerated and formerly incarcerated back into relational wholeness with God
  2. To re-establish the true identity and purpose of every offender so they can rise up and live out the true meaning of liberty.
  3. To mentor and disciple offenders into a state of maturity in order to expose their gifts and talents.
