No life is beyond the reach of God’s power, and we envision a future in which countless prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their families, are redeemed, restored, and reconciled through the love and truth of Jesus Christ. We equip our church family volunteers to spread the Gospel and nurture disciples within our county jails, so that men and women become new creations in Christ.
