Statistics say 2 out of every 3 prisoners released from jail will be re-incarcerated.
Many prisoners want to change and sober up, but simply don’t know how to break the seemingly never-ending cycle most have been in their entire lives.
What if you could make a difference?
What if you could bring forth a wave of change?
What if your prayers can set those captive free for all eternity from the enemy’s chains?
Do you have a heart to share the Gospel with the lost, brokenhearted and incarcerated?
Then prayerfully consider coming alongside Pastor Joshua Moore and our Calvary Chapel South Bay Prison Ministry!
The purpose of this ministry is to live out Christ’s exhortation in Hebrews 13:3 to: “Remember the prisoners as if chained with them—those who are mistreated—since you yourselves are in the body also.”
The Bible says that we all are sinners in need of a Savior.
No man or woman is too far gone for God to radically transform and make brand new.
If you still have breath in your lungs, then God is not finished with you yet.
We at Calvary Chapel South Bay want to reach out to those who are locked up—to give them hope, encouragement and the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Many prisoners feel abandoned, angry, lonely and unloved.
But God still loves them, has a plan for their lives, and wants them to be restored, transformed and saved.
Our job, as His ambassadors is not to judge them, but to “go into all the world to preach the Gospel to all the nations.”
Go into the prisons, into the jails, to pour out Christ’s love, truth and hope to these men and women whose lives may seem hopeless.
The Prison Ministry’s aim is to tell these men and woman that God still loves them and will forgive any who call out to Him—no matter who they are or what they’ve done.
Our mission is to build up prison ministry teams by using their gifts and calling.
We will focus on teaching incarcerated believers how to share their testimonies with fellow inmates, guards and loved ones, how to give words of encouragement and exaltation, how to teach a Bible study, and even how to lead worship.
“Through biblically based programs and a positive community, those who once broke the law can be transformed and mobilized to serve their neighbors, replacing the cycle of crime with a cycle of renewal.” – Prison Fellowship
If You Are a Loved One of an Inmate, We Haven’t Forgotten About You!
Not only are inmates struggling with their difficult situations behind bars, their family and friends are struggling too.
Having a loved one behind bars is never going to be easy, but having the support from fellow believers reminds them they are not going through this difficult time all alone.
Therefore, the Prison Ministry reaches out to those imprisoned and their loved ones as well.
There will be worship, prayer, words of encouragement, and fellowship to build unity between family members, uplift the brokenhearted, give hope to those feeling hopeless, and share the Good News of salvation with those who are still unsaved.
So if you have a heart for those struggling behind prison bars come out and join us.
We meet every 1st and 3rd Monday from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the Overflow Room here at CCSB.
Ages 18 years of age and up are welcome and Children’s Ministry will be provided. We look forward to seeing you!
