Holy Ground

Aug 28, 2017

Category: Leadership

rison ministry is hard work – not for the immature or the fainthearted. Prison pastors must find a balance in the tension of obeying prison rules while caring for their congregants, and in being respectful of other religious programming while still being true and clear about their own theological understanding. It is critical that pastors engage in deliberate self-care, so that they can navigate within these unique tensions.

God Wants You To

Aug 20, 2017

Category: Invitation

I work with guys who recognize they need to change, recognize their efforts to change in the past have been unsuccessful, and recognize their need for God's help. Prison congregations serve as God's hands and lips. Along with over 40 volunteers from the "outside", we work to help guys see and live a brighter future...I invite you to join us or any of the other prison congregations in this fulfilling ministry. If there are none in your area, contact Executive Director Mary Mortensen of PCA to get one started in your area. I believe God wants you to.

Forgiven

Aug 13, 2017

Category: Light

Forgiven. In his letter to the Colossians, Paul wrote, “For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins” (NRSV, Colossians 1:13-14). Prison is dark and those within that darkness desperately seek the light of Christ. Sadly, many never find it. Sometimes though, all it takes is a hope-filled young person wearing a t-shirt to remind us that no matter whom we are or what we’ve done, we are forgiven.

Sound and Light

Aug 08, 2017

Category: Miracle

Those of us who worship inside are witness to the flickering lights born of enthusiasm and joy... these sights and sounds of prison congregational worship. The razor wire does not and cannot contain the light or the sound. Just like the cicadas’ song and the fireflies’ dance, the prison congregations’ witness spreads to the outside. Indeed, this song and accompanying dance of light is changing the church and through it, the world. May a loud and joyful song and a graceful dance play in your heart.
