Prison & Jail Ministry in Action ...
Kingsway Prison and Family Outreach is a service ministry reaching out in Christian love
to inmates, ex-offenders, and their families.
Prison ministry can be very rewarding and discouraging at the same time: rewarding in
seeing people come to Christ and turn their lives around in a new direction; discouraging
in watching others keep repeating the behavior patterns that caused them to become incarcerated. The letters and cards we receive from inmates and their families let us know that we are touching lives in a positive way. Kingsway knows the value of hard places: it shows insufficiencies and failures in areas of our lives that need to change. We understand that it is Christ who really changes a person’s heart and attitudes.
Kingsway, through our volunteers, contributors, and prayer warriors, reaches out to a group of people who made wrong choices in their lives. They are paying the price to society for their wrong choices. Kingsway is not a fruit inspector, but a fruit harvester for Jesus. Come join us in the harvest for Christ.
Remember God’s Mercy is Greater than Our Mistakes.....
"Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail…….." Lamentations 3:22-23
