Prison Ministry

As a former inmate at MN Shakopee Facility, I am blessed to say that when Shug spoke to us she breathed life into me. I have faithfully leaned on her every word about the forgiveness and love that our Father has for us. I am redeemed! I am grateful. I am ALIVE for the first time in all my life. I have been out of prison for 3 years now and still doing amazing. Glory be to God!

"How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in?  And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?  And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?"

Romans 10:14


Our aim with prison ministry is to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to women inmates, right where they are, when most are feeling lost, suicidal, hurt lonely or hopeless. We tell them about Jesus Christ’s unfailing love for them and their dire need for a Savior.  Whatever dark corner we are called into, our desire is to "get the love thing right."  

Hey, let’s get real… you don’t have to be in prison to get this… we all deserve to be on death row because of our rebellion and sin against a holy God.  Wouldn’t you want someone to take the time to tell you there is total freedom from the condemnation you deserve?

Let’s help more women in prison choose to live a victorious life and feel the freedom that can only come from Jesus.

"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim the good news to the poor.  He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners."

Isaiah 61:1
