Prison Outreach Ministry

A new opportunity to offer hope to incarcerated women

What if offering hope to those in prison was easier than it sounds?  
What if you could perform this Work of Mercy from home?  

Our Prison Outreach Ministry partners with "Changed Choices".  This local non-profit provides emotional, spiritual, and physical assistance to highly motivated women both during their incarceration and as they transition back into society, enabling them to make positive changes in their lives and to achieve self-sufficiency. 

Consider joining this ministry and have a life-changing impact on women in prison.  Easy and meaningful ways to participate in this ministry - most of them done from home include:

  • Prayer Team Member
  • Card Writer
  • Pen Pal
  • Mentor

Changed Choices Makes a Remarkable Impact:

Without support, 2/3 of incarcerated women are likely to return to jail, and their children are much more likely to commit crimes that lead to prison.  Changed Choices makes a life-changing impact:  less than 4% of their clients return to prison.

“For punishment to be fruitful,
it must have a horizon of hope. 
Otherwise, it is enclosed within itself
and is only an instrument of torture;
it’s not fruitful. ”
